      Get Nerdio Uber - Free ride?

      Chicago Yesterday

      Has anyone here tried the free Uber ride from Nerdio here in Chicago? Heard from a pal that they also offer door-to-door Uber (with IT consultation, etc.) all for free. Has anyone tried it? Is it really free? Thanks!

    • Gyms/health clubs in Princeville

      Kauai Aug 7, 2016 at 7:36 PM

      Maybe I'm being a bit optimistic, but I plan on going to the gym during my Kauai vacation. Will be staying in a condo in Princeville. A google search turns up gyms in Kapaa, but none in Princeville. The nearby hotels require the purchase of a day pass to use their gyms, but it isn't worth the money ($50 - $250/day) considering all I want to do is use the gym. Does anyone know of any gyms in Princeville/Hanalei? Thank you!

    • Vehicle crossing into US

      Laredo 15 hours ago

      I would like to take a Mexican car into the US at the Laredo border crossing. What paperwork do I need to complete? Any handy hints? The car is not currently registered and is for export from Galveston within 30 days of crossing into the US, which I think is OK under the US temporary import rules.

      Also, can I hire a trailer and car in the US and cross into Mexico and back out again to the US, or is this just asking for a world of hurt? I'm not even sure US hire companies would even allow their cars to exit the country, even temporarily!

      Cheers

      National Parks in Alabama

      Hi all,

      Can you give me a few Nat'l Parks, very nice ones, for Alabama? I will be camping the gulf coast this winter.

      I like to stick along the shores as much as possible, but don't have to. I am looking for something diverse with marshes, good birding, a lot of beauty. If the are inland, that will have to do.

      I understand it will be cold most likely.

    • Which Dive Site is better

      Florida Aug 7, 2016 at 6:42 PM

      Looking for some advice.... For snuba and snorkling, which is better? Duck Key or Sombrero Reef

      I was looking at doing a charter..

      (1) http://www.diveduckkey.com/

      Dive Duck Key has their own sites they go to and apparently dont have another dive shop within 10 miles of their shop. Seems the wild life is kinda slack and you mostly see sand and rock.. not much coral and fish etc. I at least gather this info by watching youtube videos of dives at this site. Am I wrong? Is it worth it?

      (2) http://www.tildensscubacenter.com/

      I was looking at this charter as well which goes to Sombrero Reef. Sombrero Reef seems more lively but is also more packed.

      Which one do yall recommend. Thank you

      Also we were looking at snorkeling with http://keysdiver.com/index.htm ... the 3 stop trip. Does anyone have any experience with this trip? Thank you

      Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good value for money travel insurance which will cover us for 3 days of skiing? Most companies I've found will only do snow sports cover for the whole trip which makes it insanely expensive, especially given we only need the cover for three days out of our 4 week trip.

      Any suggestions??

      Hi. My my mom and I will be going to Yellowknife in December hoping to see the northern lights. Initially, we are planning a 5 day trip to maximise our chance to see the lights but now I am having second thoughts if that 5 days is too long especially with -30 to -40 C weather. We will be renting the full winter outfit during our whole stay but I am worried that it won't still be enough to go out for a long period of time even with proper layering. What do you think?

      Milwaukee to Toronto (ONT) Using the Ferry System

      by Seabiscuit Online Now May 9, 2008 at 4:46 PM

      Low and high, high and low, I have looked everywhere. Has anyone done the Milwaukee, WI to Toronto, ONT trip using the ferry system across Lakes Michigan and Huron (God, I hope that's the right lake). I'm trying to find a way to avoid a nasty trip just on the US highway system going to Connecticut. Toronto to Connecticut is a scant 9 hour drive, whereas, Rochester, MN to CT is around 20 hrs. We will be taking a car (obviously) so portage with that item is mandatory.

      We'll be heading out May 20. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I was tossing between that and the Executive Inn more in the center of downtown, so fill me in guys, did I reserve a dump or is it decent?

      I am seeking information on cab transportation in Milwaukee. I have some mobility problems, so it is best for me to get a hotel near my ultimate destinations, and taxi to wherever those venues might be. Even realatively close parking can be trying. A cab to the door takes care of the problem. I know taxis are plentiful, but what I can't find on the web, is any idea of price. All trips would be in the downtown area, and not exceed four miles. If cab costs are beyond sensible reach then we'll have to change plans. Not: Busses are no longer a good method for me.
