Hey! I am going to do the Pacific Coast Highway starting in SFO driving to LAX. I've been to both SFO and LAX before, but have never done the drive. Would you guys have any great places you'd recommend?
hidden for non-members3mo
Big Sur, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, check out the mountains between SF and Santa Cruz, same for Ft Bragg & Willits, there's a glass beach somewhere up in norcal too. Solvang is a neat place to have lunch.

Don't drive at night.
hidden for non-members3mo
Thanks for this!
hidden for non-members3mo
i personally loved the beach in Monterrey! and i've never been but i hear they have an amazing aquarium
hidden for non-members3mo
I've driven the entire stretch between SF and SD (in pieces). Pretty much everything vbnrjovlahpyvr said. Some other tips in no particular order.

Hearst Castle is sorta cool in San Simeon. Basically a mansion done in an eccentric Greek/Roman/medieval style combo

In SLO make sure to try Splash Cafe clam chowder, and if you can get there on a day they have a farmers market in SLO, GO. It's the best I've been to. Downtown is cool.

You can stop at Morro bay and go kayaking in the bay. Very alive during certain times of the year with sea lions, sea otters, and string rays

Stop in Pacifica at Camelot fish and chips when you leave SF.

State street in Santa Monica :100:

Santa Monica - check out third street promenade and some of the rooftop bars for a nice sunset by the ocean

I recommend keep going south to check out some of the OC beaches too. Newport and Laguna are cool and lively. There are lots of smaller, more private beaches to stop at along the way in OC too.

I hear the Channel Islands are awesome if you can get out to them. Haven't been personally
hidden for non-members3mo
oooh yeah hearst castle is cool!
hidden for non-members3mo
Thank you guys! This sounds awesome!
hidden for non-members3mo
You might want to check out the Winchester house on your way out of SF if you have timeโ€ฆcrazy stuff
hidden for non-members3mo
that looks super cool!
hidden for non-members3mo
Yeah, the history of it is pretty crazy
hidden for non-members3mo

hidden for non-members3mo

hidden for non-members3mo

Does anyone know of a good place for surfing in CA that isn't > $1500/month on AirBNB?
hidden for non-members3mo
The CA coast is a really expensive place, you'd need to split a flat
hidden for non-members3mo
Best would be to find a flat with some surfers too, then then can show you to the local spots
hidden for non-members3mo
Try craigslist around LA/SD/OC/SB
hidden for non-members3mo
As in... make a post up front what you're looking for, and hope people respond with pictures and prices. Someone might have a room while a buddy is out of town
hidden for non-members3mo
Yeaaahhh...that's what I'm thinking. It's my girlfriend and I though, so not sure how well that would work.
hidden for non-members3mo
I didn't realize people still used Craigslist shocked_face_with_exploding_head
hidden for non-members3mo
In US cities it's pretty useful still
hidden for non-members3mo
Another option would be to go down to Baja. You could likely rent an apartment and a car for the month for half the price
hidden for non-members3mo
(rent a Jeep!)
hidden for non-members3mo
That's also what I was thinking ๐Ÿ™ƒ
hidden for non-members3mo
I love Baja, and the temps are going to be dropping soon
hidden for non-members3mo
I did really want to spend time w/ my GF in the US though (she's not from there)...but we'll see. I love Latin America in general.
hidden for non-members3mo
Never been to baja yet either, so it would be a good place to explore.
hidden for non-members3mo
Baja's it's own place... It's not quite like the rest of Mexico, and definitely not like the USA
hidden for non-members3mo
๐Ÿค” oh really. ...how so?
hidden for non-members3mo
There's places that are so remote... Cities and towns are pretty far apart. Also, there's a lot of expats who live there (in certain areas, or nearby), so it definitely drives the culture. It operates pretty independently of the rest of Mexico, both in culture and governance
hidden for non-members3mo
For example, for years and years you didn't need a tourist card in Baja. Now you do, but no big deal. But, you don't need an import permit for vehicles from USA/Canada still.
hidden for non-members3mo
It used to be a really difficult place to get around too, but that's changed as the 1 is almost fully paved. It used to just be dirt roads everywhere even recently as 10 years ago
hidden for non-members3mo

Wondering what state is best.
hidden for non-members3mo

hidden for non-members3mo
xmfzkjnigupvyz best state is either the state in which you primarily reside, or Delaware.
hidden for non-members3mo
website depends on what you want out of it
hidden for non-members3mo
It would be for a shopify Site psicxwixsh so ecomm and potentially doing international business with it.
hidden for non-members3mo
iirc, the advantages mega-corps get out of Delaware and Nevada don't translate to benefits for LLCs, so be sure before you commit to Delaware or other states
hidden for non-members3mo
yeah i agree with that fmzgktnv - but if you're a DN and you don't reside in any one state full time and must pick one, picking Delaware is probably the best one to pick (imo)
hidden for non-members3mo
I'm Californian.

anouumqtgchndk I'd probably just register a CA LLC if I were you, then

๐Ÿ‘‹ visa question for you folks. As I understand it, under the visa-waiver scheme, you can get a 90 day tourist visa to the USA. the 90 days continue to count down if you're in an adjacent country (ie Canada/Mexico). Does this mean, if I enter the USA on the east coast for say a month, then spend 3 months in Canada heading west, and want to enter the USA on the west coastโ€ฆ how long might I be able to stay in the US the second time? do I 'just' need a new visa to be granted by the border agent and the 90 days will start again, assuming the ESTA is still valid? or they won't like the fact that I've done that at all?
hidden for non-members3mo
> If you are admitted to the United States under the VWP, you may take a short trip to Canada, Mexico, or a nearby island and generally be readmitted to the United States under the VWP for the remainder of the original 90 days granted upon your initial arrival in the United States. Therefore, the length of time of your total stay, including the short trip, must be 90 days or less.
hidden for non-members3mo
it doesn't explicitly state the terms required to re-up your 90 days, but that's probably to avoid publicly stating how to game the system

satrncwlvdwmmwoyiddncyw just arrived in Toledo, OH, OH#C02ULAL7E|united-states
hidden for non-members3mo
afaik the US doesn't have an explicit set of rules like the 90 in 180 days of the EU. If you run out of the original 90 days, you can probably get a new visa under the VWP (the ESTA is valid for like 5 years, so you still have that), it's very much up to the border guard (whoever actually grants you the visa) to decide if they grant you a new one.
No actual personal experience though, just read about it somewhere so treat this info accordingly

No, not walkable.
hidden for non-members2mo
Bike maybe? Depends on where you want to go.
hidden for non-members2mo
It's a cool city but I don't know how much time I would budget for it. Depends on what your lifestyle is and how much you prioritize things like walkability, certain types of activities, and a nomad/entrepreneurship community

I actually had the opportunity to go to grad school there and turned it down for a lower-ranked program because I was worried the city wouldn't be interesting enough to hold my attention for multiple years

Anyone know a company in the USA you can hire a car without a credit card? ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
hidden for non-members2mo
do you have a debit card?
hidden for non-members2mo
Yes
hidden for non-members2mo
then i would google which companies allow you to rent with a debit card. there are 1-2. you'll pay a premium and a bigger deposit so have a lot of money in there.
hidden for non-members2mo
From what I've found, you have to have a ticket that is inbound where you pick the car up and outbound where you drop the car off. It's all a bit frustrating! Will have to rent the car a little longer to the meet the requirements of the outbound ticket ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
hidden for non-members2mo
i've never seen that requirement but i've not had to use a debit card in years.
hidden for non-members2mo
that's a very strange requirement. You can also look into early or late fees for that booking. I.e. if they have a fee for returning early, but just charge the daily rate for late returns, book through until you think you'll be finished, show up on that date, and only pay for the extra days if they insist in you keeping it longer for (which would be weird)
hidden for non-members2mo
of course, make sure you're paying a daily rate and not a weekly rate
hidden for non-members2mo
In the UK, it's really normal to use a debit card instead of a credit card. We don't really have a credit card culture in the way that the US does. I hire cars fairly often travelling and this is the first time it's been a hard & fast rule ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I've ordered a credit card now anyway so hope it arrives in time ๐Ÿ‘€
hidden for non-members2mo
That's a good idea though svwowljl if it doesn't arrive!
hidden for non-members2mo
yeah, I understand the debit vs credit culture is quite different. credit cards are mostly a US thing. fingers crossed for your credit card ๐Ÿคž
hidden for non-members2mo
Thank you ๐Ÿคž I have faith it'll arrive!
hidden for non-members2mo
ozmqjoqo something about that doesn't make sense to me. I've never heard of that requirement. Would another car rental or ferry ticket or something small like that also suffice?
hidden for non-members2mo
skemdfqmmfntz It's a really weird requirement but it's the same on Enterprise, Alamo & a few others I've looked at. Essentially, you need to have evidence you arrived at the location you pick it up and evidence you will leave where you drop it off.
hidden for non-members2mo
is this only for non-US citizens?
hidden for non-members2mo
I got a credit card, mostly because I couldn't hire cars in the USA on debit cards easily
hidden for non-members2mo
I did a quick read of enterprise's terms, and and it looks like the requirement for flights is only for airport locations, and will only allow you to rent and return the car at the same location. Is this for your cross-country drive qxcnreqm
hidden for non-members2mo
It is indeed! The issue is, I need the car just for SF -> Yosemite -> Vegas. After that, happy without the car. We land in SFO but leave from LAX.
hidden for non-members2mo
๐Ÿ˜ฉ Silly USA!
hidden for non-members2mo
From what I can see, it is just a blanket rule for airport locations. Non-airport locations don't accept debit at all, from what I can see.
hidden for non-members2mo
ok, so looking over what they're writing, enterprise won't even allow you to pick the vehicle up for a one-way trip without a credit card. too easy to lose you. that's why they ask for the airline tickets
hidden for non-members2mo
I'm going to assume the other agencies had similar verbiage for right now, and suggest that you get on the phone. call the locations you're looking at renting from, and ask them about one-way rentals with a debit card. in a situation like this it's better to ask permission than forgiveness
hidden for non-members2mo
all the enterprise writing for non-airport locations basically said "call the location and ask"
hidden for non-members2mo
Yes absolutely agree. I'm gonna have to call around and see what they say. I've actually booked a car now that can be cancelled free of charge up to 48 hours before. I'll give the rental locations a call and see what they say. I am hoping the credit card arrives but at least then I'll know if I can fall back to the debit card.
hidden for non-members2mo
you can book fully cancellable reservations from every rental car agency. rental cars work way different than flights/busses/trains/etc. It's not necessarily for the best, but it's how the industry works
hidden for non-members2mo
there's no reason you shouldn't have a reservation at each company in case one turns you away
hidden for non-members2mo
Oh! That's good to know, too!
hidden for non-members2mo
Cut to of me traipsing around SF, dashing through revolving doors with waning enthusiasm, rejected from company after company, desperately clutching my debit card
hidden for non-members2mo
I can't recall if most of these sites are franchises, but I know some of them are, which means calling and confirm what you need for your rental should prevent that. I've gotten very little push back from rental companies. generally the customer is always right
hidden for non-members2mo

Something I just remembered, in the 3 years since I left the states and started traveling, is jury duty. I totally forgot about that until it came up in conversation. I'm assuming I have probably received a jury duty summons at some old address and never showed up. What do people do about this?
hidden for non-members1mo
If you get the notice you can generally tell them youโ€™re out of the country or state and they pass over you. You might be able to write to/call whoever handles it in your state and tell them that even without a summons.

My GF had to deal with this the month after we left to start the DN adventure ๐Ÿ™‚ She had to send a few letters and make some calls but they finally took her off the list.

How did she even find out? I'm not sure they have my current address?

Usually when you register to vote they put you on that list

Hello everyone, Iโ€™m going to be in Atlanta for a week in 10 days, can I get a prepaid SIM card at the airport?
if yes, how much does it cost? just need 1gb or 2
hidden for non-members1mo
thanks!
hidden for non-members1mo
Most times I've been to the US, I ended up getting a prepaid card for 30 days from T-Mobile, which is like $30-40 for 10GB, but they're not on the airport generally. Last time I flew into the states (ORD) there were some prepaid sims at the airport, but they were more expensive for less data, so I just went without data until I was in the city. Not sure about Atlanta though, but I can imagine there's a similar situation
hidden for non-members1mo
anyone located in Chattanooga, TN?

i thought tmobile did away with that?

I got it the 24th of October in Chicago, and got it earlier this year in Hawaii as well

maybe they brought it back? i know a lot of people were pissed they nuked that as an option.

What's the best way to find short term accommodation in Vegas? 3-4 weeks
hidden for non-members23d
Airbnb
hidden for non-members23d
Or gamble big time and get your hotel comped.
hidden for non-members23d
You can find hotels there pretty cheap
hidden for non-members23d
hotels are certainly cheap, but i want an apartment
hidden for non-members23d
Yeah, Iโ€™m sure there there is a lot of inventory on Airbnb. I mostly just meant if there was a place ever were you could get a super cheap hotel for that kind of time period it would be vegas
hidden for non-members23d
With the resort fees it comes out to be normal price
hidden for non-members23d
Airbnb is your best best for an apartment, but you can get some insane hotel rooms (and usually some form of comp). I don't gamble enough to get comped all the way, but usually you can get significant discounts just by being on mailing lists.
hidden for non-members23d
We paid $90ish for a really nice suite at the Venetian. If you want to be scrubby, you can get things for as cheap as $35-45ish (fees included) off strip.

Has anybody ever been to the Peppermill in Reno before they remodeled it about 5 years ago. Was the most incredible and entertaining of eyesores. An amazing place to stay, just for the laugh
hidden for non-members19d
Havenโ€™t stayed there, but seems like a good place ๐Ÿ™‚ And Reno is amazing overall.
hidden for non-members18d
I think they remodeled it recently so it's nowhere near as much of an eyesore as much as it used to be. I think it's now just a normal casino.
hidden for non-members18d
is that related to the peppermill in vegas somehow?

hidden for non-members17d
Know if you actually need it before you travel, if you won't need it that year, don't bother
hidden for non-members17d
Probably, I would guess. Many of the hotels/casinos have common ownership
hidden for non-members17d
you mean an IDP.. which is really just a translation to standardized fields
hidden for non-members17d
1) many countries donโ€™t need it
2) you can get a new one by mail to anywhere in the world from AAA in the US
hidden for non-members17d
no need to go back every year for it
hidden for non-members17d
I've rented cars and motorcycles just about everywhere - Mexico, Bali, Italy, Moldova, Uganda, New Zealand - and I have never been asked for an IDP
hidden for non-members17d
We needed one to rent a car in Bulgaria that we took to Serbia and Romania... Thailand will hit you up for a few baht if you get snagged without one... And a scooter shop in Spain tried to make me cough one up, but I think he was just being sexist
hidden for non-members17d
I got one because it was supposedly required to rent a car in Italy but no one ever asked (granted, I never got pulled over or in an accident, maybe in that situation I would have needed it?)
hidden for non-members17d
Right this is why Iโ€™m getting one. Most of SE Asia you can just pay them off if you have issues
