re: Where to stay in Lake Charles - cassopher
The Nugget is worth it. It's a great place with lots of places to eat, a great pool area, and one of the best (albeit expensive) golf courses in the area. Tillman is housing the Rockets there in September during training camp so if it's good enough for an NBA team to play around then it's the best...

re: Panama City Beach??? - cassopher
[quote]Were the beaches more crowded than GS/OB? [/quote] We arrived the weekend after the 4th of July so there was still LOTS of vacationers in northwest Florida at that time. Even Seagrove Beach was more crowded than I expected it to be although not nearly as crowded as PCB and definitely not...

re: Panama City Beach??? - cassopher
No it's not bad at all and I think the trashy stuff is a bit overblown. We stayed in Seagrove Beach 3 weeks ago and took a day trip to PCB to do a dolphin cruise and mini golf. Nothing at all that would stop us from going back to play or stay. It's been 4 years since we've rented a condo but IMO ...

re: Anyone have experience with Ski Cooper in Colorado? - cassopher
I'd recommend Copper or keystone if you are wanting to save some dough. Lift tickets at Copper are much cheaper than Breck and you can stay in Frisco which is 10 minutes away and still get the resort town main street fun. You could stay in Dillon if you were to ski keystone and save money. Both t...

Looking for another smartwatch - cassopher
I am currently using a Samsung gear S3 frontier for my runs. First off the things I like are that it has Spotify integration so I can have all my music with me on my runs. Also the watch has its own sim so I can leave my phone behind and make and receive calls in case of an emergency. Now the b...

re: Hiking day trip around Las Vegas - cassopher
We went to Red Rock canyon and did some cycling but they have awesome hiking trails. The place is really amazing! We also went to Lee Canyon/Mt. Charleston but it was February and it was covered in snow but I assume it would be great hiking. We biked the river mountain loop trail along Lake Mead ...

[quote]In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack, I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower, I use a water activated gel cleanser. Then a honey almond body scrub. And on the face,...
