It's a nice highway, and it's quite safe. But it's single lanes most the way, so careful for drivers passing you.

I don't believe Americans have that problem. ;)

Where in the south?

The 6 will probably get you there faster
masada, ein gedi and dead sea.
on google maps seems like with the 90 is at least half hour or more faster than the 6. from tzfas

90 is a single lane highway, 6 is the biggest hwy in the country...

For the dead sea you're probably better off w the 90 though

Hi all. Looking for a hotel for overnight in the Dead Sea on Chol Hamoed. The hotels themselves are booked since they give the rooms to the tour people. Anybody know who I can call or write? I need 3 rooms. Thanks.

The CP, but I think it's 25-30k points, which is poor, unless you have no other options.

Wanna climb Masada on Thursday morning - anyone know details such as how much they charge and what's the earliest we can start?  We're coming from Beitar Illit and the plan is to get up super early, 3ish and get there so we can start climbing as early as possible. Would love to get to the top in time to daven vasikin but its so early now that I have a feeling they wont let us start that early.

I'm thinking of staying at the Dead Sea tomorrow night, Chol Hamoed Sukkos.

I happen to have 60,000 Starwood points.

What can I do to get the best price or value for points?

Only SPG is the LMDS, see HERE.

Very hard to get availability. Nothing for your date. Good luck.
