Just found and read this TR now thanks to High End Hobo's link. Great TR! Thanks for writing!
Thanks! Was so different than my more recent trips with my family which are basically just about relaxing on a nice beach somewhere while I am trying to sneak away and get some diving or snorkeling in ;)  Thankfully my wife let me go off myself and I was able to find a good travel buddy here in High end Hobo. An epic adventure I guess.

What a great TR! I had a lot of fun reading it... what an adventure! It's good you went somewhere with so much readily available alcohol after our trip to the Middle east  :) I can't wait to see the pictures from the far north.

I've partially read this thread but didn't see how to activate the 45 dollar gift of membership gift card. I did see that I can be difficult. What's the easiest way to activate? Thank you

Great TR! I just got back from an 8 day trip to St. John and I can relate to your experiences. We actually almost stayed in the villa you stayed in. I contacted the owner however in the end I didn't want to stay in Coral Bay. In retrospect I wouldn't have cared and I really enjoyed the day I spent in Coral Bay.m We stayed in the Westin villa for the first few nights and when it was no longer avail we switched to a house in Fish Bay - right up the road from the Westin. I also loved Salt Pond and enjoyed the snorkeling.

Sorry to hear about the sea urchin - those guys did look really nasty!

Did you make it to any of the north shore beaches? Funny story at Brown Bay I am happy I didn't try it! We also did Budget they really are the best option and they let you take the car over to STJ.

Dubai is much safer than Jordan
+1 - In Dubai you feel safer. When I was in Jordan I was on edge the whole time. Even Qatar felt safer then Jordan. As Hershel pointed out in Jordan it's the average guy on the street that can be an issue. Just look back at the massacre in Jordan of the Jewish girls (granted that it was in 1997 and it was a soldier ym"sh).

Not more expensive then what and did you price it for full coverage?
For example the Accord came out a just a tad higher. Yes I did full coverage as I wrote that it was for a lease.

When I quoted a civic online with Geico it was not more expensive. Geico has my DOB so why would they mind if someone my age drives a teen car....

ebay gift cards for sale. $100 or $500 cards available. 4% off or best offer.
Possible for large quantities, but limited, so act fast...
Are you selling? Because this is not the place to sell or barter.

I am in the process of selling a camera on ebay with the shipping being determined by ebay. I have several bids so far. Someone from New Zealand asked me if I would sell it to him. Assuming it's not worth the hassle however I figured I would ask here what everyone thought.

Thank you!

One could compare him in a way to mechiyas amalek. We certainly don't feel sympathy.

Assuming this is for United to move their planes or is there somehow a market for these flights?

Up In The Air / Re: ElAl matmid points
« on: August 11, 2015, 05:29:02 PM »
I recently flew on ElAl and the miles didn't post to my Matmid Account. The agent I spoke to said for a new account I must add it after 2 weeks but not later then 6 weeks after the flight! She said for her to add it on it would cost me 25 dollars. The whole thing sounded crazy but then again we are dealing with ElAl. Anyone have any experience with this?

I didn't see a link online for which to add the flights myself.

I found a one way ticket from Vic Falls to JNB for $100. Is it risky with Shabbos flying on a Friday? Is it worth it just to have the extra time to see Chobe Safari?
Chobe is amazing. However to appreciate it you ideally need a few days. The game is more spread out then in Kruger or the Eastern African parks. You'll see tremendous herds of Elephants and it has really wild feel to it. That being said it's hard to appreciate that without spending a few days in Chobe.
