Re: Banff and Jasper Master Thread Not the same as a "friend," but I used my wife's free night in Lake Louise without any problems.

Re: Alaska Master Thread We spent an amazing 2 weeks there when our youngest was about 9 months and were able to do just about everything we wanted.

Re: Kosher Food Options Near Shenandoah NP I was recently in Shenandoah. Skyline Drive is beautiful, but there is no nearby minyan or kosher food available. If you want a world-class but strenuous hike, look into Old Rag, which features amazing views and an unbelievable rock scramble to the summit. Shorter and easier options include Hawksbill, Stony Man, Dark Hollow Falls, and Bearfence.

Re: Live Antarctica Trip Report
So which DDF members ended up going on the cruise?

Don't know if I'm active enough to count as a DDF member, but I was part of the group on the cruise.

Re: Cruise Lines and Experiences Definitely get the prescription Scopalomine patches. They likely won't be cheap depending on your insurance, but they can make or break your whole trip. I made it to and from Antarctica unscathed with the help of my patch.

Also, try one before you go for 2-3 days to see if it causes you any side effects. I got dilated eyes from them, and many others in our group had dry mouth, and some dry eyes.

For the Drake Passage, I combined with OTC Dramamine and wristbands I got from Amazon. It may have been overkill, but I survived the Drake much better than most, and would rather be safe than sorry.

As far as the cruise, when I once looked into other kosher cruises (not Dan's :), I was told that some of them can have significant kashrus issues. Check to see who's providing the actual hashgacha on your cruise, and make sure you're comfortable with it.

Re: A Getaway to Paradise - as2's Private Island Escape Those last few drone pics are amazing! What model did you use for them?

Re: Fin Del Mundo - the unofficial DDF Exclusive TR Amazing TR! Just one minor correction: While all the rooms were kept unlocked by default, there was an option to request a physical (not electronic) room key that one could use to lock the door whenever outside the room. We did not utilize this option, but I know of at least 2 members of our group who did. No idea if Stephen Harper had a key, though based on interactions with him, I'd be quite surprised if he did.

Re: Colorado Master Thread I love the Whites and have gone there at least once a year for the past decade, including some intense hikes (Mt. Washington, Franconia Ridge). That said, RMNP is in a completely different league - the size of the mountains, the snow-capped peaks even in the summer, the grandeur of the scenery. That said, you still have to decide if it's worth the shlep to get there vs. the ease of driving to NH, but you should at least know that if you make the effort, you will be getting a major upgrade on the views.

Re: Lake Tahoe We were there 3 summers ago, as part of 2.5 weeks in NoCal. We planned our visit around July 4 fireworks, which are ranked among the top 10 in the US and were absolutely amazing! We didn't spend so much time hiking there with little kids, but hiked down to an old vacation house that someone built on the shore, which was really nice, and enjoyed the drive around the lake. Emerald Bay is particularly stunning.
