re: Likely Relocating to NC - Any Posters Made the Move from LA? (Raleigh Area) - Furbs311
I grew up in Southern Pines, and my parents are still there. Golf is definitely the draw, but Southern Pines/Pinehurst is a cool little area if you like the small town feel. Lots of parks, trails, and festivals in the downtown areas. 4 distinct seasons, with just enough snow here and there that made...

re: Charleston/Savanna - Furbs311
I work in Savannah. I’ll just add, skip The Lady and Sons and literally eat almost anywhere else. This town has great food, don’t waste a meal on a tourist trap. One of my favorite for lunch is the beer garden at Treylor Park. The aforementioned Grey and Pink House are great too. Husk is cool and if...

re: Moscow Airport Layover - Furbs311
Flown in and out of SVO a good bit but never for a connection, but I think you’d be fine. Only potential hiccup is customs, but worst case if you miss your flight, I’d imagaine there are several flights a day to Munich. Other than that, it’s a normal airport. I’ve flown Aeroflot once internation...

re: unpopular cities in Ireland to visit - Furbs311
I went to Kinsale, Killarney, and Lahinch in May and enjoyed each one for different reasons. Kinsale was a moderate sized town with a lot of great little restaurants and pubs. Cool old fort within walking distance, and about 15 minutes away is Old Head, which is the most incredible golf course I...

re: Ryan Leaf to work for ESPN as a college football analyst - Furbs311
Yes, he was in prison just a few years ago I believe for breaking and entering. Dan Patrick interviewed him on his show a few weeks back, worth the listen. Seems to be in a good place ...

re: 737 Max grounding will extend into 2020 as more problems uncovered - Furbs311
[quote]manuals and paperwork for aircraft approval can go into the 1000s of pages easily,[/quote] Times that number by 1000 and you’re still probably low :lol: I can’t imagine the FAA is just looking for problems to make a point - every issue uncovered is a bad look for them just as much as Bo...

re: About to take my longest flight - Furbs311
I use to try to strategize on long flights to adjust for time change. I’ve got a new approach now - if I’m tired, I sleep :lol: i find it easier to adjust once I’m at my destination by staying up the first day, but often times my stay in country is short enough where I’m headed home before I ever ge...

re: Honeymoon in Cabo - Furbs311
I’m not really the right person to answer - I was there for only a day last week for work. But stayed at the Westin which was a beautiful property with top notch restaurants. We were told to have dinner at “The Office” in town which apparently is tables right on the beach, but didn’t make it out tha...

re: Ireland Golf Trip Review - Furbs311
Lahinch - Lahinch was a gem from start to finish. The one quirk here was the lack of practice facilities. They have a pitch and putt area, but that was closed as they are making plans to host the Irish Open in a few weeks and grandstands were already starting to go up. We hit a few wedges into nets ...

Ireland Golf Trip Review - Furbs311
Just got back from a week long golf trip in Ireland. Posted this on the golf board, but figured some on here might find this interesting as well. Planning/Transportation - In Ireland, we had a group of 8 that played 6 rounds in 6 days, and had accommodations for 7 nights in three different cities...

Just got back this weekend. Thought a few might enjoy a trip review.. Planning/Transportation - In Ireland, we had a group of 8 that played 6 rounds in 6 days, and had accommodations for 7 nights in three different cities. Four guys from the group went the week before to Scotland and played four ...
