Seems like some of us take some pretty sweet trips outside the best trip of them all (TCG Tour) and that some people like posting pics of their adventures.

Unfortunately they get posted in the off topic section, which at this time only makes sense.

But I propose that a new section get created for vacation pics and anything travel related??

Maybe this will make some people more active within the forum and share their adventures.

Just a thought. :dunno:

meh. not enough content. off topic is general enough to cover the half a dozen threads that pop up a year. less clutter is better.

good all inclusive. it is changing over to a time share/members club so they do a free upgrade your first night and try to sell you way too hard for my taste. overall the resort layout is nice with plenty options for beach, pools, restaurants and entertainment. I do prefer smaller resorts due to amount of peeps.

Let me know when you're in Seattle. I know some good breweries
Speak up!

Actually not a huge craft brew fan, definitely want to sample the local stuff though. Planning on a couple expensive meals every day, do a little touristy shit and a little adventure-y shit. I wish it were a bit warmer out to get some more of the seasonal stuff to see, aka out on the water and Olympic national park

Gotta check out the redwood forests out in that area too. So cool to see how big the damn trees get!

Last time I was there was 18 year ago. Wasted walking around not having a clue where I was. I expect a lot of the same on this trip.

Best thing we did was buy the 3 day "hop on hop off" bus pass and took the full tour the very first morning. Then we used the bus to get around the quarter and surrounding areas before​ we headed to the northshore to rent a cabin in a state park on lake Pontchartrain. 85* here today. Perfect.

My liver is gonna need a rest when I get back!

View from the patio of the cabin. Tough life right here.
