re: Atlantic City Recs - Furbs311
Use to spend a lot of time in AC and came here to post this, White House is a must. I suggest taking a cab.. walked from Ceasars one time.. AC is not the nicest of towns :lol: If the weather is nice, walking around the pier/boardwalk is OK. Usually a decent rotation of shows at the casinos. T...

re: O-T aviators, recommend me a basic airplane - Furbs311
[quote]Having everyone climb through that one wing door sucks. [/quote] During PP training in the 172, my instructor showed me how to use the doors for lateral control if the rudder cable snapped. Can't do that in a Piper :lol:...

re: O-T aviators, recommend me a basic airplane - Furbs311
You can't go wrong with either for a starter. I have a couple hundred hours in both. Did my private in a 172, IFR and non-complex part of the commercial ratings in the piper. Personally, I feel like the 172 is a better handling aircraft but the Cherokee is more forgiving in maneuvers, especially sta...

re: Is gobal entry worth $100 if I'm only flying twice a year - Furbs311
I travel internationally a lot for work and have never gotten GE. With status through delta I get pre check randomly and use priority lines when I don't. I've been using mobile passport a lot when clearing customs and often times I beat the GE folks. That said, my employer has arranged for TSA to co...

re: More Sleep vs. CRJ 200 - Furbs311
I always pick the shortest travel day, so if you get there at the same time, go with the later flight. With delta I don't worry to much about the upgrade, especially on CRJs. The over head bins blow and I end up having to gate check my carry on which is a pain. ...

Delta Rewards - Furbs311
Not sure if this belongs here or the travel board but-- I started a new job around April this year that's pretty heavy on the international travel. I'm 1900 MQMs away from Diamond on Delta. Don't really care about status except for the international upgrade certificates you get when you reach Diamon...

re: Storm Aftermath - Hurricane Matthew will be Retired - Furbs311
Hope it comes back soon. We aren't going back to Bluffton till we have power. From the videos and pictures outside my neighborhood, there's probably at least a mile of lines on the ground. Imagine it will be the better part of a week ...

re: Storm Aftermath - Hurricane Matthew will be Retired - Furbs311
Things are getting a bit tense in Bluffton/Hilton Head. Damage is pretty bad and extensive, curfew from 7-7. They have sheriff/national guard parked on the county line on all roads and aren't letting anyone in, regardless of proof of residency. Hundreds of people spent the night on the side of hwy 2...

It's Daufuski Island. No bridge, boat only access. Apparently some are staying even though reports are the whole thing could flood. I live near there just outside of Hilton Head but took the family to NC. Hoping it turns away from the Lowcountry ...

re: Hermine Damage on Prospective Home - Furbs311
Good info, thanks. I think this is the route we are going to go down. After talking to my realtor (don't worry, he's one of the good ones) he suggested the owner wouldn't likely accept an offer contingent on the roof being fixed AND my house selling. I think I'll list my current house and if I get u...
