re: If you could take a vacation to anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? - Teddy Ruxpin
Nice. We did Cape Town and Sabi Sands as well. Stayed at Elephant Plains. Flying into Hoedspruit airport was something else. Awesome experience. Not sure how your lodge does it, but with 5am game drives and two a day, you barely have energy to hit the bar after dinner, but I managed....

re: If you could take a vacation to anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? - Teddy Ruxpin
South Africa is cool. Hope you get to go. What's the destination? Funny, when I went to Cape Town it was during the water shortage and it was very dystopian with all the water conservation signs and billboards, and water shut off in bathroom sinks all over. I thought it was somewhat surreal at th...

re: Sharing.. WWII Normandy Map.. - Teddy Ruxpin
From what I can tell, he was in England training for a long time. I believe US troops were there for months/year or more before D-Day. He was "replacement depot" during D-Day. The military folks probably know more, but what I gather is after the 29th took Omaha and suffered heavy losses, you woul...

[quote] So no mention of the 29th Infantry Div landing on Omaha Beach? That’s inexcusable[/quote] My grandfather was 29th infantry. Got called up after D-Day to take St. Lo from what I gather. Series of books from Balkoski about it. Ended up shot three separate times from 1944 to 1945....

re: The absolute clusterf*** that is the NFC East - Teddy Ruxpin
It's a little different when the NFL went to four team divisions, while still maintaining the rule that best overall record wins division. Was basically fine when 8 games out of 16 were division games, but when it became 6 some weird results became more probable I think....

re: MSY Rental Car Cluster - Teddy Ruxpin
Ya, I've used Uber at MSY before and they did have it set up like a cab stand I believe. I only use cabbies if I just want to GTFO and the rental car shenanigans seems like a good reason enough to do that....
