re: Portugal and Morocco trip recommendations - AugustaTiger
We did Morocco and it has been one of our favorite trips. We stayed is Marrakech for a week and then went and did a “Sahara Desert” tour that was a 5 night round trip tour into the desert.

re: Planning a trip to Iceland next November - AugustaTiger
We did a trip in January of this year. We knew it was going to be cold, but we packed accordingly and we were fine. Honestly, if we stayed out of the wind, it wasn't much different than the winters in Georgia. (Snow was already on the ground but it didn't snow when we were there.) We were the...

re: Is it fair to ask season ticket holders whether they will opt out or not.... - AugustaTiger
I’m in the same boat as you... 10 hour drive each way. Between rental houses, tickets, food, booze, tailgating, and transportation costs we tie up a bunch of money to go to these games. If I was 2 hours away, I could justify opting in. If I were in BR, I’d absolutely opt in because I wouldn’...

re: Judging performance of a financial advisor - AugustaTiger
Ask your advisor to drop the fee to flat 1%. That .2 bps over the 4 years would have likely brought you up to around 7% annual. Also look at the internal expense ratios of the investments you own. Are you owning high expense ratio mutual funds inside of a fee wrap account? If so, you might be p...

re: Safe Haven for 401k money pre/post election - AugustaTiger
I’d keep it parked right where it is. Are you going to sell your house and rental properties too? Those might go down in value after the election too. The answer to that is -no- because you aren’t focused on the houses value- you are focused on the income the house brings you, or the shelter it ...
