What is your favorite place to work remotely from in the US? Planning for July!
Hey! Welcome back! I'm in NYC atm. Things are pretty 'normal'. Most people I know are having their 2nd shot very soon, restaurants/bars are open until 11pm (still limited to that), you can attend sporting events (conditions apply), but overall things feel pretty normal all things considered.
Bars are actually open till 12am now. There are also a lot of restrictions being lifted in the coming weeks with the intention of everything being 100% by July 1st.
Can't post the link - Cuomo to End Virus Curfews, Allow Bar Seating in NYC; (but you can google this and it will redirect you to the news ymdwbdbs was mentioning)
My plan is to visit mid July, so hopefully things will be much better then, but I just wanted to have a general idea of what is going on. Thank you very much !
But for just July Duluth or Washington State
Bozeman's fun. The U.P in Michigan and Wisconsin both have some great low-key spots with good weather & beautiful lakefront in the summer. If you can find a spot with good wifi, the Outer Banks in NC is great in the summer too. And they're all pretty unaffected by covid (with the exception of Michigan).
Yes esta, got it in less than 1h
Hey guys - does anyone happen to be in Maui right now?
oh thats awesome news. I already have a valid ESTA. So any weird questions? although I know it depends on the actual person in immigration.
No it was really quick I was surprised
thats great, last question ( sorry ) in which airport did you land?
There's a few of us. ukgcgf and I are here.
Yuppp join, it's the best. I'm in Paia
If you're in Paia I'm a pretty far drive from you but she's close
Iโ€™m in Paia too!
Would love to connect with you guys sometime ๐Ÿ™ƒ
Lahaina isnโ€™t a far drive, come on now lol
Sam be lazy joyrelaxed
He's in Kihei which is even closer
Anybody in Miami? Hooolllllaaaaaa
Apparently loads of tech people ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hey guys! Thinking of nomading in Hawaii in the next 2 months. Any best tips?
Sure. Which island?
So Iโ€™m thinking about Oahu or Honolulu. Honestly, Iโ€™ve not yet been and thinking about giving it a try. Iโ€™m pretty much a blank slate at this point.
Honolulu is on Oahu
The fomo is real
I moved from Kihei to Lahaina due to neighbor issues.

That being said I'm down to kick it - especially if you're interested in a dive/hike
But yeah I have full island laziness now. 1 hour drive might as well be a different island ๐Ÿ˜†
Tip Airbnb is super expensive. Try to find a short term rental. It'll probably be run down. Oahu probably has a lot more options than Maui. Check facebook groups
But seriously if you get into snorkeling/free-diving/scuba I know all of the places
That's a very broad and subjective question lol
I will be tomorrow
Iโ€™ll be there may 4-18!
let's get afterrrr it
Sweet! Yep I got some snorkel gear when I got in. Iโ€™m always down for a Kihei drive so you guys let me know if you ever wanna hang
What kinda marketing analytics do you do Sam?
evuavjkcryka Of course it is! That's kind of the point!
Is Texas giving vaccines to anyone?

I'm from California, but have been living in Mexico for the past few years. My girlfriend is Mexican. We have a car, so are considering driving to Texas to get vaccinated. Anyone have experience getting the vaccine as a non-Texan?
Probably easy. San Diego is giving them out to non US ppl
in case you are anywhere near
I think it's open to anyone but isn't the land border still closed?
Officially, it's closed to non-essential traffic, but as far as I've heard the rule isn't being enforced.

The official statement is

โ€ข The United States will temporarily limit inbound land border crossings from Canada and Mexico to โ€œessential travelโ€.
โ€ข This action does not prevent U.S. citizens from returning home.
โ€ข These restrictions are temporary and went into effect on March 21, 2020. They will remain in effect through 11:59 pm on May 21, 2021. This decision has been coordinated with the Governments of Mexico and Canada.
I'll be going after May 21, probably.
I'll consider going anywhere to get vaccinated. Texas is just much easier to get to than my home in NorCal.
If you can deal with WWJD billboards everywhere, the south has some cool spots with great outdoor access. Asheville NC is great if you like hiking. Savannah GA is great if youโ€™re looking for city life but with great parks. Charleston SC is also a great city with a beach.
Texas is wide open for vaccines. I did mine there (trips from MX, technically FL resident) starting in march.
That's great news. Which vaccine was available when you went? I'll probably get my second dose in Chico California, where they're giving Moderna.
It varies based on location and day. I don't know of anybody who has gotten the two doses in different places, so not sure how that would work
Not sure what the current situation is. I had to register before, but that was before pharmacies could do it
Florida is opening up vaccinations to people who are not state residents:

> โ€œ[โ€ฆ] if you can verbally meet the criteria, so if you can say yes to whatever the questions are, then you can get the vaccine.โ€
> โ€œPeople will get asked if they're providing goods or services to the benefit of the state, and a foreign passport works as ID.โ€
(Source NPR News Now from 4/30 10PM)
lqqzmtnf I'd second all of those too. The southern states are a little out of step with me in a lot of ways, but whenever I've visited, the locals have been friendly/helpful, there's great camping all through the south, and the food is incredible.
I work for a tiny company and do consulting. I setup/maintain the the marketing tech stack and do media buys (facebook/google/ad network ect).
I mostly do mobile apps but have done other software, lead gen, ect
I'm planning to fly from Costa Rica to Europe via California. Does anyone know what are the requirements to transfer in LA? I've heard there is a quarantine for arrivals to California, but I guess transfers are excempt. Did anyone did that recently?
For folks in Hawaii, do you rent a car or do you buy a car? The rental cars are super expensive.

I thought about buying a used car, but I think that requires registering in Hawaii and changing my residency.
Yea, itโ€™s expensive and now thereโ€™s a shortage on rental cars (on Oahu). :sweat:. I ended up buying a moped, which I did have to register and get plates. (But Itโ€™s been a game changer for convenience in getting to things within my 3 mile beach range (ie I want to try surfing on the opposite end of the beach). But for getting to other parts/beaches/, towns that are further out I used to use the car shares, but now you have to book those cars like a month in advance :white_frowning_face:. I used to book day of. Not anymore. Now Iโ€™ve been contemplating a car because I want my own SUP board... but Iโ€™m still gonna hold off on a car, I really just hate driving. Either way, at this point I pretty sure Iโ€™m tax a resident :sob:. Started to talk to a tax accountant here. So is what it is :sob:. All this to say, I have no clue! The car situation is definitely hard here!
Yeah I wonder if thereโ€™s a way to register a car without being a resident
I think there are many part time residents who have a vacation home and a car there who deal with the same situation
I'm not sure if buying a car makes you a resident
You don't need a state id to register a vehicle
You can ship a car here for like 1.2k (800 to ship back)
You can probably recoop some of that cost by selling it when you leave
probably cheaper if you ship it to oahu. I'm in Maui
My friends mom shipped her car here.... and he said something about her having 30 days to switch over to Hawaii plates...(not sure what that was about or maybe because she was intentionally becoming a resident).....I think it was only $2500 to ship.
oh $1.2k ...even better
I heard there's some drama here when people notice that plates are from the mainland...I guess in that it's perceived as more mainland people are moving here...Anyway...that's a separate topic that I haven't fully gotten a deeper scoop on.
Racism is alive and well in Hawaii lol its just mostly against Haoles
If you're white tread carefully if you're not in an all white neighborhood
And definitely don't move to Moloka'i
qlfeddqza There is a car rental issue on the islands right now. I noticed prices were ridiculous because I'm looking to move off island and sell my truck (and rent while I don't have one) It was on the news too. Apparently they shipped a bunch of cars off island during the pandemic slow times and now that tourism has picked back up with a vengeance there is a supply/demand mismatch. Maybe buy my car if you're moving to maui ๐Ÿ˜†
Wow. itโ€™s crazy how expensive it got. I remember I negotiated the monthly rent to $400 at the start of pandemic because there were so many free cars.

Thanks for suggesting a way to import or register a car. I guess you just need an address and donโ€™t technically need to be a resident to register a car. Iโ€™ll probably buy a beater Toyota next time.

Iโ€™m not in the island, and donโ€™t know when Iโ€™ll be back.
I love Hawaii, but I always feel isolated when Iโ€™m there. Itโ€™s hard to make friends in Hawaii whether itโ€™s a local or a visitor.

I donโ€™t know where to meet new people.

Iโ€™m hoping with more DNs coming in thereโ€™s a community of people who I can socialize with
Yeah imo its better to buy a beater car here. Toyota will be too expensive. Joke is if its a toyota it might not run but its still worth 2k
interesting. thanks for sharing
np. Although I still think the COL will be the biggest barrier to ever making this a true DN destination (well compared to other beach destinations say in latin america, asia or even Europe). But will be interesting to see how it plays out. Hawaii's definitely trying to find a new revenue stream outside of traditional tourism.
Yeah housing there is so expensive, and itโ€™s not even good
nope~! not at all. Like the furniture got trapped in the 70's ๐Ÿ˜ญ
you need to take the time to find the gems (which they are there) but it takes a bit of time.
Any of you just try organizing shared homes for DNโ€™s to keep cost of living down in places like USA where inherently spendier? Like 3 - 5 peeps in airbnb etc / month?
Anyone in West Palm Beach area?
Iโ€™d be in for something like this
Seems common here in Maui
I live with my gf so we're able to at least split in 2
I had a friend living here when I arrived which made it easier. Also I stayed for 8 months
COVID-19 Vaccine Hey guys, I am heading to Oregon and Washington states in June and would like to get the vaccine, if possible. I am not a US resident and will be there on a Tourist VISA. Officially both states require proof of residency, however I would like to know if someone has heard something about tourists getting vaccinated with no issue in any of these two states? Plan B will be to layover in Texas on my way in and out of the US to get vaccinated. Thanks
My friend volunteered at a mass vaccination site about 45 mins outside of Seattle, and said nobody was checking for proof of residency. This was a good month and a half ago, I anticipate itโ€™d be even easier now with such an abundance of vaccines.
Washington state has a bunch of vaccine locations not requiring appointments or IDs now, so itโ€™s definitely possible here
I know Clark County has mass vaccination sites that (just across the river from Portland, OR) have this free-for-all several days a week now.
Im in Miami these days ๐Ÿ‘‹ (with a weekend escape to some beaches north of on the weekend)
In Oregon you can probably register at (a chain pharmacy with stores in pretty much any town) and just put your Oregon AirBnB address in there to set up the account, and then register for an appointment to get the shot at the closest store. They ask for the printout of the appointment (which Iโ€™m guessing you could show on a phone) but I donโ€™t recall them asking to see an ID.
Thanks for the reply!
Thanks for the reply!
a couple of us are in Miami this weekend, join us for happy hour!
zbzhudeuldpwojj I donโ€™t believe anyone anywhere is asking for proof of residency. No one even asked to see my ID. It was just walk in, fill out form, get shot, walk out. There may have been SSN on form but I donโ€™t recall. I know that no one checked it or even looked at it
Thats awesome, thanks for the reply!
