I have had a charcoal/chunk smoker (Weber smokey mountain), an electric smoker and now I also own a Green Mountain Daniel Boone Prime Wifi (pellet smoker). The pellet smoker is incredible and gives me results just as good as charcoal/chunk. I still use the Weber as well, but my Boone is used multipl...Jump to post

All my hobbies already are ‘socially distant’. I love brewing beer, in which I have plenty of grains/hops/yeast on hand to brew probably 50+ gallons worth.

At Universal Studio's Orlando, back when Jaws was still around (pre-Harry Potter) the was a distinct smell when you enter the boathouse on the ride.

24hr delay in FRA on United (to EWR), Flight 961. Our aircraft (787-10) never left EWR so our flight was cancelled. According to United, the flight cancelled due to a bird strike caused extensive damage to the aircraft. So we stayed overnight at the airport hotel, got a few hundred dollars in travel...Jump to post
I have travel booked via DL from the US to Munich in May, but I am curious how this will effect it. I have booked non-refundable fare tickets, but hoping if it does indeed spread throughout Europe (and the US and anywhere else) that DL will allow cancellation of some sort if it becomes that bad.

It's not really overpriced as they still fill the park to capacity all the time. The parks are filled year-round.

Being 6'6", often times if somebody reclines in front of me, their chair constantly gets bumped by my knees as I turn/move uncomfortably. Not on purpose, I just have no room at all. I can’t help it. As far as the “just upgrade your class”, that isn’t an option I’m willing to pay for in most cas...Jump to post
That's why Cleveland is awesome. Can go from swampy, hot and humid to snow and everything in between in the course of a few days!
On a serious note, I would take cold over hot. Being super hot and sticky is just as bad as frigid cold and snowy, but overall I like it cooler so that wins for me.

My flight from CLE to MUC was $650 round trip via Delta booked for mid-May. As a point of reference.
$1400 seems high, for sure.
I wouldn't be against a more 'bare' fare, as long as the existing "wanna get away" fare doesn't change at all in pricing, baggage allowances, etc...
If the bare-fare reduces baggage allowances only with a slight price reduction, no biggie. It just depends how they do it, if they do.
Take it to a shop with the proper tools and just pay them to do it. I've seen them do it at car dealerships, for free, to help customers with similar issues. Sometimes it's not worth buying tools and going back/forth between stores to do a task a decent shop could do easily in a few minutes.Jump to post
So my first long-haul flight was earlier this year, between YYZ and FRA on Luftansa… Was able to fly on the 747-400 as my first ever widebody. It’s always been a dream of mine to fly on that aircraft, so it was a bit surreal to walk into that plane and just see how massive it was. Comfortable flight...Jump to post
Excellent TR, really enjoyed both!
How tall are you? Curious, as being 6'6" I like to take mental note of the room given in economy on various aircraft/airlines.
They are testing with 40 employees per flight, not paying passengers. You cannot sell tickets on a test flight. Also employees will have heart monitors & blood pressure checks among other random checks after the flight. Hopefully those 40 employees are sitting in economy... Easy enough to do th...Jump to post
Southwest is my go-to domestically. Having flown on Delta recently to compare, it was a step down IMO. Nothing but good flights on Southwest, multiple times a year. Only once had a delayed flight that caused connection issues (out of SFO...), but Southwest went above and beyond to fix the issue and ...Jump to post
Just booked a trip to Germany, from DTW to MUC on a 767-400 to/from. This flight is in May, 2020.
I assume these will be remodeled cabins according to all I read, but this particular flight isn't shown on any of the articles or anything I find. Anybody know?
We did a connection like this at YYZ this past June (PIT -> YYZ -> FRA). While our connection was 1hr and 50mins, it was plenty fine. Also flew via Air Georgian (to connect to Luftansa). I think an hour would be fine, with no delays of course. Once off the plane, we found our way to the customs chec...Jump to post
Aircraft changes coming for CLE-ATL very soon! Starting Saturday Delta will be swapping 3 of its daily ATL flights, that are typically MD-88/90, to Boeing 737-900 + 800 aircraft.

Never understood the fascination with guns in America. I am born and raised here and would be 100% for banning all guns... Or at least making them extremely difficult to obtain with heavy restrictions (no automatics, for example). It needs to be done. But won't. Because people love their guns for wh...Jump to post
We were booked on UA961 from FRA-EWR a few weeks ago, which got delayed 22hrs or so due to 'mechanical' in EWR due to severe turbulence, supposedly, and then crew rest issues due to the delay. So our plane (787-10) never made it. While most people rebooked to another flight option, we ended up waiti...Jump to post
Absolutely I will be doing a very thorough inspection on the vehicle and taking a lot of pictures of everything.

From what I have found, liability coverage by law in Germany is "unlimited" at 0 deductible. At least, that is what my rental agreement says... So it's confusing, to say the least. Hertz offers for like $150 or so, liability for the entire term, so if I don't have a solid answer by then I'...Jump to post
Well I found according to law in Europe, liability coverage has to be included with car rentals... So if that is the case, having my comprehensive coverage through AMEX should suffice: $100K of primary coverage for damage/theft $100K of accidental death $15K secondary medical per person $5K secondar...Jump to post
I did google the topic a few times, but I didn't find a clear answer on documentation required. As far as the insurance goes, it seems to be perfectly fine to use as primary coverage overseas and won't be any issue.

I do miss the impressiveness of FSX in terms of traffic and such, that was one big benefit for sure.

Absolutely love WN’s boarding process. My last flight from CLE to SAN (connecting through LAS) we decided to skip early bird check-in and just check-in normally 24hrs before departure.

Having come from FSX, X-Plane is a HUGE jump. Almost in every single way, IMO. In X-Plane, I personally fly the Zibo 737 (honestly, not sure it gets much better in terms of aircraft available) along with the Flight Factor 757 and 767. All three are great aircraft to fly.
