re: Santiago, Chile- who has been? - Geaux Frogs
I went in December 2010, and I would move there tomorrow if I could make it work. 45 minutes East are the mountains, and 45 minutes East through the wine country is the beach. It is great. Santiago is just like any other big city...good and bad parts of town. I stayed in the Provindencia Distr...

re: Roofing contractors want to see insurance paperwork first - Geaux Frogs
The roofers work for the insurance proceeds. There is no need to get a quote. The insurance told you that it would cost $X to replace, and the contractor is agreeing to replace it for $X. Money gets people twisted, and somehow people got the idea that they can make money off of an insurance c...

re: Fort Worth Dinner Recommendations? - Geaux Frogs
Panny gave you a very good list to research. I will add Reata as an option. Have drinks at the rooftop bar before dinner. Nice place with a "Fort Worth" feel. You will fit in wearing jeans and a collared shirt anywhere in Fort Worth....

re: Best Country in South America to Live? - Geaux Frogs
I spent 2 weeks in Chile a few years ago, and I would move there in a heartbeat. Diverse regions that are very accessible, Santiago is just like any other big city in the US, with a lot of US companies having a presence, very friendly people, and extremely affordable. I am waiting to get my kids...

re: Recommendations on a Quick Weekend Getaway Spot Near DFW - Geaux Frogs
Take a look at a place called Rough Creek Lodge outside of Glen Rose. It is a family resort/executive retreat, but there are plenty of ways to be away from everyone. This is perfect for a weekend getaway...but it will be a bit pricey. Honestly, one of the best restaurants you can find, and I do...

re: DFW baws I need input - Geaux Frogs
The amount of development in Las Colinas is crazy right now. I would imagine that area will turn into a hotspot once it is all completed late this year. I work in Las Colinas, and some of my co workers are thinking about going in on a "crash pad"...haha. It is tough to beat Southlake. Plano/Fr...

re: Best Vegas Shows? (mostly Cirque) - Geaux Frogs
All of the Cirque shows are entertaining, and you will probably not be disappointed. They are all very well produced. However, if I were recommending a show right now, I would have you go see Absinthe at Caesar's. This was a really fun show....

re: Burger/BBQ joints in/around Dallas or Arlington? - Geaux Frogs
There is a place just northwest of the Ballpark, Donnie's Hot Dog & Philly Steaks. Not Burgers or BBQ, but it is a hole in the wall, and the food is good. Nothing fancy, large portions, and taste great. The lady that runs it is extremely friendly, tells everyone that she loves them. This is us...

re: Italy in Wintertime/Christmas - Geaux Frogs
I did this exact thing about 5-6 years ago. We spent time in Florence, some small Tuscan towns, and Milan. We day tripped all around the area. I didn't notice a ton of tourist. The weather was good, cold enough for a jacket the whole time. New Years in Florence was memorable. They LOVE fir...

re: Fort Worth, TX: eating and mostly drinking - Geaux Frogs
There are some great restaurants in Ft. Worth. Ft. Worth isn't stuffy, you can wear jeans and boots anywhere and not be out of place. Even the "high class" places. Del Frisco's, Grace, Reata are nice places downtown. Drinks at the rooftop bar of Reata is a great place to start. As stated,...

re: First time out of the country, what do I do about cash? - Geaux Frogs
If you use your local bank, they shouldn't charge you anything. It is your money, you are just requesting they give it to you in a different currency. I bank with Chase, and this is how I have done it every time I have traveled out of the country. It usually takes them a few days to fill the orde...

re: First time out of the country, what do I do about cash? - Geaux Frogs
I try not to land without local currency...just in case. I go to my local bank before I leave and order $500 in the local currency. It is the same as making a withdrawal at an airport ATM, but no risk of your card data being skimmed, it is probably as close to the actual exchange rate as you wil...

re: Fort Worth Lunch Recs - Geaux Frogs
BBQ: Heim, Woodshed Burgers/Sandwiches: Rodeo Goat, Bearded Lady Pizza: 13 Pies, Cane Rosso You should be able to get to all of these in that time frame. If the weather is nice, I would suggest Woodshed because it is very close, and you can sit on the riverfront. ...Rodeo Goat is a great ...

re: Things to do in Cleveland besides die - Geaux Frogs
I went to Cleveland for the 1st time, for work, in October during the World Series...obviously, the town was hopping. However, I was unexpectedly surprised by how much I enjoyed the downtown area. Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena are at opposite ends of a pretty cool strip of bars and res...

re: Where should a young professional, working in ft worth, live? - Geaux Frogs
Fort Worth is great, it has a lot to offer a young professional. Lots of different neighborhoods that cater to different crowds, you will find somewhere to have a good time. Edit: ...and the commute from Dallas would make you hate your life. ...

re: Any must do/see things in Yosemite and Big Sur? - Geaux Frogs
Plan an afternoon for sunset at Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur. Pack a picnic and get there early afternoon, or you will not get in. They limit the number of people who are allowed in the beach...there is a line to get in, one car out, one car in. The sunset through the keyhole is absolutely worth i...

re: Anyone been to Hilton Rose Hall in Montgego Bay? - Geaux Frogs
Those reviews sound like reviews for most all-inclusives. I just looked at the resort for the first time, and it looks nice, but 128K points per night is grossly overpaying. You come out significantly better paying with cash. If you are looking to take a trip and use your miles, there seems t...

re: Trail Shoes (NSFW) - Geaux Frogs
I love trail running...stay nimble and light in your feet, and shorten your stride! There is something so nice about leaving the watch at home and running through the trees. Running in hiking shoes will make it a miserable experience. All of the major running shoe companies make trail running s...
