re: Would you fly Frontier? - NCTigerFan
Yes, I would. But sometimes I just let Frontier's prices dictate where we're going, if we don't have a particular destination in mind. Spent the President's Day weekend in the Keys (I think it was $79/pp RT Raleigh to Miami). Spent Spring Break in Colorado (I definitely remember it was $49/pp RT ...

re: Two weeks off starting today-fam of 4 where would you go? - NCTigerFan
Western North Carolina. So much to do, but also a lovely place to do nothing. Spent a long weekend in [link=(https://www.visitlakesend.com/yurt-booking)]one of these yurts[/link] and we all agreed it was one of our favorite stays ever and we could have happily stayed much longer. That's just on...

re: Are amtrack trains sketchy? - NCTigerFan
We took a scenic weekend trip from Denver through the Rockies (and back again) on Amtrak in April. It was a mixture of excursioners like us and those who were on a long-haul trip from Chicago to San Francisco. Perfectly safe. If not for the mask requirement, I definitely would have considered it ...

re: Luggage recs - NCTigerFan
[quote]I lived abroad for 3 years and traveled back and forth to the US and all over Europe with cheap Samsonite hard case luggage. We initially bought them from Amazon thinking we would use them once and replace them with nicer stuff. Never did. They’ve been perfectly fine with no issues really. I’...

re: Hotel and Restaurant Recs in Charleston - NCTigerFan
We like the Francis Marion Hotel and find it to be a good value. We're in NC, so not too far away, and a couple times a year we'll grab a deal we see for this hotel on Travelzoo or Priceline and head down there for the weekend....

re: Estate Planning - Middle school aged children - NCTigerFan
We have an 11-year old. We've named a guardian and a separate trustee. The trustee has broad discretion to use the trust for her benefit until she's 30. Then she gets it all. We really didn't want to put a bunch of cash in her hands at 18 or 25 when her brain is still developing. I don't *think...

A handful of times in my life, I’ve done summer subleases from college students who go home for the summer but want to keep their apartment. They’ve all been great (though I always went the “entire apartment” route and didn’t explore any options with existing roommates.) [link=(https://boulder.c...
