re: Any must do/see things in Yosemite and Big Sur? - Geaux Frogs
Plan an afternoon for sunset at Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur. Pack a picnic and get there early afternoon, or you will not get in. They limit the number of people who are allowed in the beach...there is a line to get in, one car out, one car in. The sunset through the keyhole is absolutely worth i...

re: Anyone been to Hilton Rose Hall in Montgego Bay? - Geaux Frogs
Those reviews sound like reviews for most all-inclusives. I just looked at the resort for the first time, and it looks nice, but 128K points per night is grossly overpaying. You come out significantly better paying with cash. If you are looking to take a trip and use your miles, there seems t...

re: Trail Shoes (NSFW) - Geaux Frogs
I love trail running...stay nimble and light in your feet, and shorten your stride! There is something so nice about leaving the watch at home and running through the trees. Running in hiking shoes will make it a miserable experience. All of the major running shoe companies make trail running s...

re: Wolf Creek vs Purgatory - Geaux Frogs
Our family has been going to Wolf Creek for nearly 30 years. Grandparents bought a cabin for the family in South Fork because we enjoy it so much. As stated, no on-site lodging, so that cuts down on some crowds. There is not much to do in South Fork or Pagosa Springs for nightlife, so be prepared...

re: Help me choose an international trip! - Geaux Frogs
I did 2 similar trips during business school, and my recommendation would be to pick the location that you would least want to visit on your own. I had the opportunity to choose Italy, Germany, South Africa, China, Dominican Republic, Chile, or India. For my first trip, I did not do that. I c...

re: Las Vegas shows - Geaux Frogs
I think O is dark on Sunday and Monday. Absinthe is a great show, with a pretty cool theater. Get there early, and take some time to walk around the theater and look at the stuff they have on the wall....

re: Has anyone ever driven through Mexico, like from the border to Cancun? - Geaux Frogs
My in-laws have a house in San Miguel de Allende. They used to drive down there all the time when my wife was a kid. They never traveled without someone who was from there, and they have stopped driving over the past 10-15 years. They say it is too dangerous. Their traveling partner, who is a ...

re: Going to Punta Cana on Friday... - Geaux Frogs
We went to the DR a few years ago. It is beautiful, the resorts are beautiful, the areas outside the resorts are sketchy. Pro Tip: The Texas Rangers have a huge training facility down there, and the Dominicans love the Rangers. I purchased 2 $20 Texas Ranger caps at Academy before we went, an...

re: San Francisco/Big Sur Recommendations - Geaux Frogs
Big Sur is one of my favorite parts of the World. There are many memorable places to propose around the area. Pfeiffer Beach. This is a very popular spot, and was the first place I thought of. Google some pictures, the sunset coming through the keyhole in the rocks is awesome. It is a bit of ...

re: Fort Worth - Geaux Frogs
Take a look at The Woodshed. It is just north of campus, and is a great place to hang out. Upscale, outdoor BBQ place on the river. Billy Bob's has been thrown out already, okay place to chase skirts and dance with the beautiful TX ladies. You guys are mid 30's and may want to hang out som...

re: Thinking about Vermont or Maine in sept/oct - Geaux Frogs
Go before the 2nd week of October, that is when everything starts to close for the season. The optimal time would be the 2nd half of September. ...

re: Palo Alto/Silicon Valley - Geaux Frogs
Stanford is a beautiful campus, worth driving around if you are in the area. There is a main drag just outside of campus with lots of bars and restaurants, you can't miss it. The central CA coast is one of my favorite parts of the World. For my time, there are much better sights in the area tha...

re: A week in Napa or Sonoma? - Geaux Frogs
Four days is enough to do both. If I were you, I would plan day 1 in Napa, day 2 in Sonoma, and them return to where you want to explore more. Both have their positives and negatives....

re: Black mold spots in pool - Geaux Frogs
I just dealt with this. Black mold grows a cap that makes it resistant to shock. You have to make sure your chlorine levels are correct, then brush with a hard brush to break up the cap/crust. Then add the appropriate amount of black mold remover. Mine cleared up in a few days. It was recomm...

re: Napa Valley Day Trip - Geaux Frogs
Sonoma is great too, but if you have never been, go ahead and drive to the Napa Valley. Some of the wineries require a reservation, so you may want to plan ahead. Do not plan on more than 3 or 4 visits, that is a full day. The Valley is long, so travel between the wineries can be brutal in traffi...

re: Punta Cana, DR - Geaux Frogs
We stayed at the Paradisus Palma Real a few years ago in June. It is an amazing resort, everything was very nice, and very well taken care of. The resorts were nice, the actual city is sketchy. Being off the property was a little uncomfortable, and we are well traveled. So...make sure you pick a ...

re: It's a great time to visit the UK - Geaux Frogs
Most branches will not have a large amount of foreign currency, if they have any at all. You can place an "order" at the local branch and pick it up at the branch in a few days. They may charge a nominal fee, but that is going to be the best option on actual currency exchange. ...

re: Italy Vacation November 2017 - May 2018 Timeframe - Geaux Frogs
I absolutely agree with the "more Florence, less Rome" sentiment. Florence blew my expectations out of the water. Rome was exactly what I expected. We also stayed in a sleepy little Tuscan town/village for a few nights and have AMAZING, postcard-like pictures from that. Everyone was pretty fri...

re: Vegas shows - Geaux Frogs
Absinthe at Caesar's was a great show. I am a fan of all of the big production shows as well, but Absinthe was just fun. I recommend this to everyone who is going to Vegas, and I have never heard any negative feedback once they get back....
