Re: Arizona Master Thread Lake Powell & Zion Trip Report - Quick 4 day trip

Flew NYC straight to Lake Powell which is in Page,AZ
EWR-PHX-PGA

Returned from St George, UT, SGU-DEN-EWR on United miles

Ewr to Phx using United Miles
UR points to book Great Lakes Airlines PHX to PGA.
(Yes slight risk flying connecting on two separate itineraries, but Great Lakes has multiple flights per day)
(Flying AA would've required a terminal change)

Got into Phoenix about 8am and went to United Club which happened to be directly opposite Great Lakes gate.

Great Lakes is a tiny little plane 1-1 configuration, no cockpit, restroom etc

Got into page about 12 noon. It isn't simple to get a one way rental out of Page. There is only an Avis in Page which is a franchise. However Paul is very helpful in getting you into Corporate vehicles which need to get back to to the bigger airports regardless. (I'm not sure what would happen if you take a franchise vehicle and drop it off in PHX)
Avis is closed on Sunday but he left us the keys with the Airline. (Actually rented 2 days locally, and then 1 day on a one-way to $ave a couple bucks.)

Stayed at the Courtyard in Page which was very fair. Checked in early so took a room without great view rather then wait. There's a Walmart there and all.

Went to Horseshoe Bend. Gorgeous! Short easy but very sunny hike up to the viewpoint. Later in the afternoon walked down to The Chains. Thanks to ddfer who TR about this. It's basically a place to climb down into the Lake.

Monday: Took out a boat on Lake Powell. There are many other marinas to rent from other then the ones on the water. Google them. We booked late so we ended up with a pontoon from Carls Marina. Costs about 380 plus fuel but included delivery and haul out from the lake. Definitely easier to Beach a pontoon. Spent a full day riding around, parked on the beach, and we also hooked up a tube as well.
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A DAY ON LAKE POWELL

TUES: Antelope Canyons in the morning. We didn't do the actual Antelope Canyons. We did the Canyon X, but supposedly its the same. It's a must do, yes those pix are real! Though the camera settings definitely help. Going in the morning is the way to go, avoids crowds and the sweltering heat.

Checked out and drove 1.5 hrs to Zion National Park. Thanks to another Ddf TR we biked it. There are other bike rental places in Springdale, but it's a lot easier to rent from the location at the entrance to the park as it's not significantly more expensive. We started biking down about 1.5 hrs b4 sundown. Weather was amazing and the sights even more amazing the road is so quiet and serene. Definitely an unbelievable way to experience one of the best national parks.

Stayed at the Springhill Suites in Springdale. Pretty much brand new. The place could almost qualify as a Ritz. Got Gold upgraded to a Suite.

WED went back into zion for a quick hike. Headed out about noon to SGU Airport in St George, UT. Connected through DEN. Called in an order to East Side Kosher Deli in Denver and sent an Uber to fetch it, tx amex credits!

Short but unbelievable!

Re: Car Insurance Master Thread TIP: I priced out a policy with GEICO. At checkout they raised it on me from  about 700 to 900. So I exited the browser and restarted the policy with my wife as the policyholder and myself as the additional. Came out to about 600!

Was paying close to double the with Liberty Mutual.

Re: (DROPR ALERT: BAD INFO) Chase Sapphire Reserve does NOT COVER CDW IN ISRAEL! Many rental agencies there like to see a letter attesting to this. Call the Chase Benefits Dept, they can email a letter over in a matter of minutes. I'd print it out and bring a hard copy to the rental counter.

And a link for the product on Amazon.

Or walk into Auto zone and give them the year, make and model and they'll tell you exactly where to find a new pair.
  Here's some of them listed on their website.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
The yeshivas poskim dont hold of it
The Yeshiva is GENERALLY against Eiruvin although they are more outspoken regarding the larger ones. This is more of a policy at this point. If you really want a psak ask one of the Rabbonim local to that area, in this instance Raintree Brookhill etc. The Rabbonim aren't going to make a public defiance against Yeshivas position, but if you ask them off the air the halacha you might get what you want.

I'd rather not elaborate more here so as not to cause heartache to those who for example aren't aware that many Lakewooders don't observe Yom Ha'atzmot.

Re: Halachik Status of Illegitimate Minyanim Needless to say I think its obvious that you want find any noted persona making a public statement allowing Minyanim. Events surrounding recent controversies have made people smarter about how their opinions and pesakim can end up in the wrong places where they are misunderstood or used to promote hatred and the like.

As stated earlier your LOR is (as always) a great resource for guidance.

correct. On shabbos. https://www.star-k.org/articles/kashrus-kurrents/4097/ten-myths-about-star-k-sabbath-mode-ovens/

Ask your LOR. I don't believe everyone agrees with this.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
I don't know but I've heard prominent Baal tzedaka in Miami Beach passed away Friday from covid19 he was 65.
I heard something like he was on a  vent for 5 weeks I dunno.

Just because you don't see these things doesn't mean that it doesn't exist
BDE. So he caught the virus 6-7 weeks ago. Where does that put us TODAY almost 2 months later? All this data and these "new" positives aren't all that relevant if the person had symptoms 5 weeks ago and isn't contagious today. How long is someone contagious for?

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
RT 70 in Lakewood is good as well. Was there too many times.
Retracting my positive review of Mavis on rt. 70. Was there recently for oil change and brakes and they came up with a whole laundry list of $2k worth of stuff that was "crucial or my front tires would literally fall of on the highway, he has seen that happen...". When I declined he tried to negotiate and offer a deal etc. (I brought the car to Lipas shortly after and they weren't concerned by any of Mavis concerns.) Was during Covid, place was empty and they may have been desperate for $$$. Ill update the post if my tires fall off.

Re: Lakewood cases
Weddings cause a spread because theere are people coming in from out of towns communities and are giving it to people. Enough people had it that it won't really spread to far. But ya people should not invite guests coming from out of town communities that didn't really get hit like Baltimore. They all have it and just don't realize.
Shuls, camps , restaurants etc have been happening for months already with zero SD. Suddenly weddings are an issue. Only logical explanation is that Lakewood seems to have some level of herd immunity and/or even some negative antibodiers have some other immunity. Its the out of towners thrown in the mix who are both getting and spreading. One of the Lakewood spreader weddings was a Baltimore family.

But who knows.
