    • Vehicle crossing into US

      Laredo 51 minutes 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

    • 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!

I was told by a friend about the Sugarloaf Key 'Jumping Bridge' location which looks like a great spot, is anyone aware of similar locations, perhaps parts of the old 7-mile bridge?

      National Parks in Alabama

      United States of America Aug 15, 2016 at 2:35 AM

      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??

      Day 3 Outlet shopping in the morning. Disney Springs in the afternoon/evening

    • Any Alternatives to Valley -> Tuolumne Hikers Bus?

      Hi Everyone

      So a few weeks before the Yosemite Valley -> Tuolumne Meadows Hikers bus schedule was finalized, I booked campsites in the valley for mid-September (I have to do them 4 months early or else the spots are always gone) since the description on the NPS site said the buses would run through late September.

      Now the schedule is out and the bus ends on September 11: travelyosemite.com/things-to...

      I already paid for my campgrounds and my plans to use the bus are foiled.

      Is there an alternative? I want to do a 1 way hike from Tuolumne Meadows to Yosemite Valley and I was counting on the buses to run.

      We are planning to take a road trip from Vegas to Zion- Page- Bryce and back to Vegas in 4 days. Do you think it's doable? The itinerary is like this:
      29 Sep- from Vegas to Zion, night stay in Zion
      30 Sep- Explore Zion
      01 Oct- Drive from Zion to Page early morning, do both the upper and lower Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend and half day rafting on Colorado River. Night stay in Page.
      02 Oct- Start for Bryce early in the morning and explore Bryce. Night stay in Bryce.
      03 Oct- Back to Vegas.
      Can anybody suggest if this itinerary is being a little too much of driving and are we being over ambitious about the tour? What alternate plan can be done with these places without increasing the number of days?
