thank you

With a regular prime membership, one can allow 2 ppl to get the prime benefits including shipping and the rest of the package.

 And for the thread which sells these offers would be the Goods for sale thread. Good luck.

 Here's the thread your looking for.

just to clarify, the prime membership is the owner + 2, or just 2?

thank you

great tr,
santorini is magical,
you wrote you flew back with emerites from ATH, how did you get to tlv?

 i guess i didnt realize that amazon made a change to prime family sharing, i was on a family account and now i am not.
is there anyway around that to get back on?
how much would my own prime membership cost?
there were some 99/year deals floating around a while back, still out there?

thank for the help....

BOB sounds like a good idea to me. Should be feasible for $10K.

whats BOB?
cant find it here

Between the size of your family and needing kosher food, the way I'd approach this is to pick 3 hubs (Glacier, Yellowstone, location near Canadian NPs), one per week, and get an airbnb at each location, do day trips.  It will be hard to find meat along the way, and you'd probably have to take it all with you, and shlep from one place to the next.  Pros: you get a decent fridge/freezer to keep food frozen, and can book a house large enough for your family.  Look into what food will be allowed through customs if switching countries.

The problem with this trip is that there is no good place to restock kosher/go to restaurant.  If you are not set on the destination, I'd probably recommend something more like Vegas/LA/San Fran (many national parks), if you haven't been to those places and depending on what time of year.  Or Washington and Oregon for cooler weather.

We spent Shabbos in our hotel room, didn't venture out at all.  There were no Chabads nearby back then, but I believe there are some in the area now.  You can look into renting an airbnb near Chabad.

Unless the locations naturally form a loop, it might not make sense to fly into and out of one airport.  We flew into/out of BZN, but we didn't venture too far.

thank you,
couple years ago we did the utah loop,
landed in vegas got rental car and drove up  (with stop at walmart) to bryce spent the night there, down to zion 2 nights, followed by lake powell 2 nights, shabbat in flagstaff (love chabad!!!!!)  up to grand canyon 1 night , back to vegas for flight home...
bh, was greaaaatttttt trip. wish we couldve extended.
kids loved and really opened our eyes to national parks.....

I've been to all the places you mentioned (Glacier 3x), but as 2 different trips. Yellowstone and Grand Teton were part of a road trip including Mt. Rushmore and RMNP, with Shabbos at Chabad of Jackson, WY, and I also did a 2-week trip to Glacier, Banff, Jasper, and Yoho, with Shabbos in Calgary, which I flew in and out of. I brought all my food, but I'm sure you can get much of it in Calgary. Beautiful scenery, and highly recommended!

wow, would you be so kind as to send me info about those trips....
how long ago were these trips?
solo or with family/kids?

thank you

Guess they didn't learn their lesson from last year when hotel was only around 70% full and every other hotel in yerushalyim was over booked

70% occupancy at super high nightly rate is better than 100% occupancy at low rate.
