I have an RV reservation which it doesn't look like I'll be able to use.

One way ORD > SFO
Brand new unit, straight from the factory.

$39/night, 2500 free miles.
Must be in SFO by 7/1 (there MIGHT be a few days leeway here, I can't say for certain. I already got them to extend the time once, I'm not sure they'll do it again.)
My reservation is picking up in ORD 6/20, that should be flexible.

Has anyone here stayed in an RV over Shabbos and can provide tips etc? what are the problems / concerns?

Or even if you've stayed in an RV but not over shabbos and can think of any potential issues...

DDF DO Board / Photography Lesson DO

Heck, even a day trip lesson to Miami (Everglades?) this winter would be cool.
I was about to suggest a day trip lesson sometime this winter!
I was thinking something more local in the northeast but FL should work for me.

I know I've seen it cheaper in the past, but I think it's been a while and not with Costco's return policy...

$289 (+$16.99 shipping if you buy online, it may be available in your local store)

FAR Food Grinder or Ice Cream Maker.
The Rebate is only valid through 11/2

Goods For Sale/Trade / Sprint HTC One BNIB $450

Sprint HTC One

Brand new, unopened.


Can be picked up in Crown Heights or shipped for a fee.

It's that time of year again, time to get really serious about planning my cross-country road trip with my family.

I'm going NY > CA, I plan to take a more southern route this time. I have a whole big chunk of the south-central part of the country that I haven't really been to yet (Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas & New Mexico,) I plan to remedy that somewhat over the course of this trip.

I don't really have very much of a plan yet.

I'm thinking to go  NY > Great Smokey Mountains National Park > Nashville, TN and head west from there.

On the western end, I'm kinda leaning toward hitting up the four corners monument > Grand Canyon north rim > maybe a quick stop in Zion NP > LAX

My questions are:
1. Is there anything in MS, AR, MO, KS, OK or northern TX worth seeing/doing? (I'm considering possibly Crater of Diamonds State Park and/or Hot Springs National Park in AR)

2. What are the must-sees in New Mexico?

3. Other than the Grand Canyon and Sedona, what are the best sights/activities in AZ?

(for 2 & 3 I'm looking for things for which I won't need to pay a fortune to some Indian tribe...)

New kosher website for kids:

(It's not considered "commercial advertising" if I don't have a financial incentive in posting here, right?)

General Discussion / (Crown Heights) "The Marketplace" CC system hacked?
« on: February 19, 2013, 01:01:02 PM »
I just got a call from somebody telling me The Marketplace in Crown heights had their CC system hacked into and if I shopped there I should check my statements etc. as people have been getting all kinds of charges from around the world.

Anybody else hear something like this?

(we need a frum Snopes)

General Discussion / Best US places to live? (Lubavitch version)
« on: August 31, 2012, 01:19:44 AM »
Where do you think is the best community for a young Lubavitch family and why?

I'll define "community" very loosely as any place with(in driving distance of?) a Lubavitcher cheder (or at the very least a Lubavitch-run day school) and a daily minyan.

Although when to comes to flying experiences I barely even enter the conversation with most of you guys here on this site, I think I can hold my own quite well when it comes to driving :)

I know the discussion here tends to revolve almost exclusively around flying, but I'm sure I can't be the only one here who's done some interesting drives...

So post your longest and/or craziest and/or most memorable drives here. (By crazy I don't mean dangerous, I'm not looking for something like "I once drove 100mph on a winding cliff road with no guardrail without wearing my seatbelt", I mean more like illogical)

I'll start off small: :)

My craziest  (to date, hopefully I'll shatter it this summer) is probably when I stopped off in Miami for Pizza on my way from Satellite Beach, FL to Jacksonville, FL. (back in 2001)

One of my more memorable drives  was when my gps took me to a random spot on an unnamed dirt road  in the middle of nowhere in a national forest where there was no cell reception for miles and my car was virtually out of gas...

For my longest I'll start with a few small things:
Longest single leg without stopping (i.e. without getting out of the car): roughly 5 1/2 hours (the most I was able to get out of one tank of gas). I'm actually kinda surprised at how few times I was able to pull that off, between stopping for gas where I know it's a lot cheaper and desperate bathroom breaks I've found it very rare to happen.
Longest stretch cruising at a steady speed, not touching the pedals or cruise control at all: The entire length of the Ohio turnpike from tollbooth to tollbooth (roughly 200 miles). I did it the night of Jan 1st this year. (I might've also done it the night of Dec 25th, but I wasn't paying attention until at least half way through...)

I'll save my longest overall (and a few more) for later...

What are yours?

I came across this on FB a little while back and was amazed by how many people got it wrong.
I'm hoping for a better result here on DDF...
