    • Traveling to Door County by plane from NC

      Door Creek Jan 3, 2017 at 12:30 PM

      Hello. In August of 2017 we will be traveling from Raleigh Durham Airport, NC to Clark Lake in Door County, WI. We are frequent Southwest Airlines fliers, so we would like to use our Southwest earned miles, but are not sure of the best airport to fly to. We know we will be renting a car to reach Door County from whatever airline we select. We are thinking Green Bay or Milwaukee, but are not sure whether SWA travels to Green Bay, or if the difference in cost would make it more economical to drive a rental from Milwaukee. Looks like a 2 1/2 hr drive from there to Door county. Thanks in advance for any help

    • Camping in & up the west coast of Norway

      by vincent49 Online Now Jan 31, 2012 at 4:43 AM

      We are looking at travelling up the west coast of Norway in a rental car in late july.
      I have heard camping is pretty 'relaxed' .We were looking to save spending by pitching a tent. If its not private property can we just setup a tent nearly anywhere and not be bothered? I was trying to avoid paid camping spots as we are on a limited budget.

      Also, in july, how far north is accessible by car? Looking to then drive accross to Lapland.

      Good day Vters,

      Can I have a piece of advise, if it is alright to join a tour on scandinavia for 12 days,
      which will cost me 1,700 US$ for the duration of the tours, or will I be able to do it on our own via eurail or the like. do you think it will be possible? if so,then how about accommodations? will it be hard to get a hotel near the train station for two.and will it be safe. thanks a lot for the help.Am running out of time since we plan to leave 1st or 2nd week of October..

      thanks a lot.

    • Trains in Scandinavia

      by carolwho Online Now Aug 18, 2008 at 7:32 PM

      Hello!

      We will travel to Norway, Sweden, and Copenhagen at the end of September.

      It makes financial sense for us to purchase railpasses. We are debating purchasing a Scansaver pass, or else a Select pass (first class).

      Are many/most of the trains in Scandinavia second class only? Is second class comfortable for longer train rides (e.g. greater than 4 hours).

      Any advice is greatly appreciated!
