re: Athens, GA - Wade Phillips
Lived there for several years. Hit up World Famous for good food and drinks. Last Resort is a must. Going to the breweries is good advice (especially Creature Comfort - walking distance). The beauty of Athens is you can walk a few blocks popping in and out of bars until you find a scene that you pre...

re: Anyone done a backdoor IRA? - Wade Phillips
[quote]Usually a backdoor roth IRA means that you make too much income to make a normal roth IRA contribution, so instead you make a traditional IRA contribution (no income limits there), then convert it to a Roth. [/quote] I'm wondering about this process as you've described, if you would be so ...

re: Tulum, Mexico Review (January 2017) - Wade Phillips
For example, I paid a balance due on my room charges that was supposed to be equal to $571 but the CC exchange came out to $610. Not awful but probably could be beat. ...

re: Tulum, Mexico Review (January 2017) - Wade Phillips
[quote]Did none of the restaurants take credit cards?[/quote] Almost everywhere was cash only. And using my credit card for the hotel subjected me to the CC company's exchange rate, which proved less favorable than I may have found had I searched around and traveled with pesos. That being sa...

re: Tulum, Mexico Review (January 2017) - Wade Phillips
Part II: Pro Tip: My only regret was not bringing Pesos. I WAY overestimated the desire for the USD with the Peso struggling in comparison. The exchange rate when I went was roughly 21:1. The restaurants and bars only wanted to give credit for 15:1. There were a couple times the exchange rate on...

re: Vacation in March. Mexico/Central/South America - Wade Phillips
Just returned from Tulum and very much enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend as a nice mix of sparse crowd but still people walking the beaches and restaurants/shops for the ladies. Very relaxing vibe. Will be returning. ...

re: LSU FASFA - Wade Phillips
If you are paying your own way and are concerned with keeping undergrad debt to a minimum to be in a better position for graduate school, then the responsible approach is to work throughout as much as possible and limit expenditures (aka fun). If you are the average LSU jackwagon looking for a good ...

re: How many $50 bills would you eat to get the same amount in return? - Wade Phillips
Eating a few (less than 5) which presumably can be done with minimal harm to one's insides is not going to be worth it to most people who aren't extremely hard up for cash.

re: Fishing in Tulum/Playa Del Carmen - guide recommendations? - Wade Phillips
Not set on anything in particular. We are taking a Tulum vacation and wanted to take a 1/2 day to do some fishing, if there was something easy enough. I will have my s/o with me, so nothing too extreme or difficult. Just looking for a fun morning with some fish action. Not really sure what that me...
