My cousin is a big TV personality overseas, on a major network and the big daily morning show. Big enough to have to wear sunglasses and a cap to go shopping. Gets great reservations at all the restaurants, etc.
It's fun going back to visit....

My wife and I competed to get the bye weekend in 2011 at our desired venue. If we hadn't gotten that weekend, we were going to put the wedding off until the next spring or even later.

I am ignorant when it comes to this stuff, so I'd like to see which on of these options you would choose for a pier and beam home.
Quote 1: Chemical- Trench and treat all piers and plumbing lines. Drill and treat piers as needed using Termidor. 5 year retreatment. Semi-Annual inspections.

Just had it over July 4th weekend. Two kids under 5 behind us, one toddler across the aisle. All were loud and whiny all flight. Kid kept kicking out seat backs.
Weather was a little iffy flying into St. Lake, so the flight was also pretty turbulent on approach.

Nobody will give Wilson Staff a fair shake b/c of lack of marketing, but their D100 line is great. If you're a value shopper, easily under $400 for irons. Silver on the Golf Digest Hot List, but only because the "demand" category scored low. Performance was up there with the big brands.
