I think BOA may have also, they all disappeared from my accounts. The only recent one I got was from Wells Fargo. I guess they havenít caught up yet with everyone else. Are you thinking make the bank are afraid some law will pass that they canít collect from folks due to COVID?

Trading with a family member Marriott for Hilton. Whatís a fair ratio for the trade ?

Was it because of exposure, or because of the occupancy issue?
Not sure if my post about the girls staying in Motels was accurate, hence I deleted it.

Anyone hear anything about a girls camp in Vermont that are sending home three buses of campers that were exposed to COVID? Apparently they have non Jewish bus drivers and the buses will arrive on Shabbos.

Trying to verify this.

Same here.
I'm not sure what they are hoping to gain by refusing to downgrade.
Do they really think anyone will pay the annual fee on this useless card rather than close it?
Useless??? Itís the only card I actually pay the annual fee year over year. Please explain how you can do better than 2% cash back? Albeit having 12 cards in your wallet.

Planning to visit from Monday - Thursday. Staying in Island Park, ID (30 min from West entrance). With 4 kids age 7-12.

Monday - Geysers  How to do this? Which ones? Is a full day too much? 
Tuesday - "Grand Canyon" & Hayden Valley
Wednesday - Which would you recommend????  (Mammoth, West Thumb/Yellowstone Lake, Lamar Valley)
Thursday - Grand Teton What to do here? Jenny Lake hike?(planning on driving halfway to Vegas after)

Besides for sightseeing, what activities would you recommend?
Uncle Tom's Trail
Fairy Falls Trail
Rafting or boating
Anything else??

Please share any thoughts.
I would plan a bit different, divide the parks into sections and then take it in strolls. For example, there is a hike they call the Niagara of the West (or something like that) which is the same falls as in the Uncle Toms Trail falls , albeit a different view, which was fun hike. Then there is the Grand Prismatic and the Boiling Mud Pot and a bunch of other random holes that steams is billowing out from which I found very interesting. There was some insane winding road near a lake that we pulled over and all went swimming for an hour or so. Or there is place where the hot and cold waters meet... (there were lot of women there so I was unable to join my kids in the fun).

In terms of the geysers, Old Faithful is the best as itís the most predictable, you donít want to sit for hours waiting for something to erupt.

There are a bunch or ranger talks that kids of that age will love, they give out activity books that will keep the kids busy as well.

Any DP if ezpass is redeemable as a statement credi?
I make a refundable hotel reservation then cancel it, but even after the refund posts there is still an option to get credit for it.

Looks like itís widespread. My niece is miserable with congestion and sore throat and is starting as a JC tomorrow. Sheís nervous about bringing corona into the camp but it doesnít sound like anything other that a common cold or virus to me.
The last thing she wants it to be ďthat girlĒ who had the whole camp shut down for a week (at best).

I am planning on going to Yellowstone this summer and have a few questions. Tentatively I am planning Sun morning thru Thu afternoon.

1) Are there any shabbos options anywhere in the vicinity? (traveler718 commented about a Chabad that is currently closed).

2) It doesn't seem that I would be able to make it back on time for shabbos leaving any later than Thursday afternoon. Any Ideas?

3) I was considering flying into FCA and spending Sunday and Monday at Glacier and the heading to yellowstone Mon evening and spending Tue Wed in yellowstone and Flying back Thu from JAC (maybe stop in Teton on Thursday). Am I trying to do too much? Should I just do Yellowstone? I'm not the type that needs to see every sight in the parks.
Did you look into flying in and out of BZN? Rental car will be cheaper if you return to the same location as pickup.

Anyone know of someone familiar with Zion National Park that can be a tour guide for a large group? Specifically want to do the narrows
Donít just plan around the narrows, we were there for a few days and each day it was high risk for flooding. Didnít end up doing that hike. We did something else similar itís call Kannara Creek.

Selling $220 for 75%

So something in Jackson or West Yellowstone would be ideal.
What's my best option for a place for 7? Airbnb?
I don't many points options. Just get 2 rooms at a hotel?
How many days are you staying? If itís only 2-3 days and you plan to visit the park every day, Big Sky will be annoying. We stayed 8 days in Big Sky and we went 3-4 times to the park, it was not bad. We were willing sacrifice the hour drive for nice and affordable Airbnb. We also had small kids so there was no way we can do 3/4 consecutive days in the car/park.

Most camp announcements I've seen have included some kind of plan for prevention of infections. What I haven't seen is any comprehensive plan for how infections will be handled if they do occur during camp. Has anyone seen any plan published from any of the overnight camps, especially the new ones which have popped up to fill the void?
I have heard that Camp Agudah Midwest (South Haven MI) is only allowing campers that live within a 24 hour drive, in case of a COVID-19 breakout.
