  1. The Travel Thread

    I have taught in international schools the last 5 years. Travel is incredibly cheap in SE Asia, especially once you aren't paying for a flight out of the US. Yeah. Assuming they're hiring for our positions next year.
  2. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Will be watching the responses for this carefully as I'm not a gambler but going for a couple days in two weeks. Big thing someone mentioned here that I'm going to do is the ferris wheel with drinks.
  3. The Travel Thread

    I'm at 40 countries in the last 5 years. Will eventually get to South America and Central America. My wife wants to do an Antarctica trip, but I told her only if we take a job in Saudi next year.

    For two player, my wife and I like Hive and Patchwork. Kahuna is good too.
  5. Best weather in the country

    I'm a big fan of western Washington's weather.

    We’re rolling Cragheart, Scoundrel, Tinkerer, and Spellweaver. Only completed 3 scenarios so far.
  7. Board Games (Reviews, Rules, Regulations, Random)

    Been playing Gloomhaven for past couple weeks. I'm going with the scoundrel and happened to draw the "Collect 200g" card. Friends have been pissed since I've been snagging every gold coin on the board and forgoing battling at times. Or play slow and waited til they took out a room then swept in with my loot cards. I want to tell them I'm not doing it to be an a-hole, but I'll let them figure it out once I've retired Scabby the Scoundrel.

    Think they'll bring back Gates?

    Even if you used a rental agency to manage it for you? I'd only use it as vacation rental so I could live there during the summer months. Not that I'm all that set on buying one since her family lives in Seattle and mine in TN.
  10. The Travel Help Thread

    Don't have to be. We went and stayed at a guesthouse on a random island (Maafushi). Then would take day trips to the big resorts. Spent 850 for the week between two of us. Only major issue with that is the Maldives are an Islamic country where drinking is outlawed except on the resorts. We'd drink when we went to the resorts but beers there are heinously expensive.

    Show I watched last year did a piece on that. Can't remember the name of the show (not mythbusters), but basically when people swap lanes in traffic or break or look at their phone/mess with the radio/anything causing a slow down, the trickle effect of one person hitting the brakes cascades to everyone behind them. They had a circular track with a bunch of cars and spaced them all out then told them to go the same speed. Inevitably, they bunched up and created traffic. Was interesting.

    28 and my wife is 26 and both are debt free. By the end of next school year, we'll have 1.5x our salaries saved. Could have much more but we choose to travel more than most. Next step is investing, I suppose. Or buying a house to rent out during the ten months we aren't in the states.

    -Oman. See some Middle Eastern culture without a lot of the shock of the super conservatism of Saudi or Kuwait. Gorgeous views of nature and easy to drive in. -Russia: Ride the train from Irkutsk to Moscow then Speed train to St. Pete. Incredible amounts of history in all three cities. Stay at Lake Baikal by Irkutsk. -Switzerland: Everything you see is like from a story book -Tanzania: Safaris are amazing and seeing the easts up close and in the wild is incredible. If you are serious about trying to travel every year and aren't big on the planning part of it or nervous about travel then I would recommend a tour company. I've used GoAhead a couple times and it's been a great experience every time. You can book them 2 years in advance and pay it off in small chunks too. Biggest issue with them is you can't stray from their itinerary and they are more expensive than if you did it on your own. You'd also be traveling with a group.

    Agree with you. I'll probably do what I did with the first one and YouTube the story.
  15. Titans, Rashaan Evans agree to deal

    Whoa. Not used to our first rounders not waiting until right at TC to sign...
