Re: Shopping for a new hot tub

I would go to a store, pick out the brand and model that i wanted. Then contact other dealers who carry that particular model and shop price and installation. Almost like purchasing an automobile. Also, can your current ht be fixed with a new pump, parts, etc?

Re: Where/how do Bogleheads get their tires inflated?

I use a blue portable air tank, will hold about 100 lbs. I also have a large compressor, but seldom use it. Those little portable compressors "throw a rod" after a few uses. I dont carry the portable tank but use it to top off tires or in case of a flat. Live rurally so need options. Tank ...

Forbes used to publish a yearly article entitled 100 things worth the money. Listed personal items like beds, sheets, other items that truly didnt cost that much to live well. A good pillow is priceless, and yet can be affordable.

Re: Vacationing in the Caribbean

I recommend you take a cruise that covers several islands. When you dock hail a taxi and tell them you want to go to the best beach in the island per your requirements. Tell the cabbie to return at a time convenient. This is how cruise staff visit beaches. Oh by the way, let us know your analysis up...
