Nevada City Tour

Packing for a vacation can be a maddening experience. You spend hours digging through your closets, chests of drawers, and other storage spaces looking for all the right clothes. Then comes the fun part: Trying to pack it all into a suitcase while staying under the weight limit. You surely don’t want to get socked with a surcharge once you arrive at the airline ticket counter.

Throughout this mind-bending exercise, it’s easy to overlook some very important steps that can help make your Nevada vacation go smoother, especially if you suffer a loss. Here are some suggestions to consider before packing your luggage.

1. Buy a backpack. Talk about versatile baggage. Forget that small piece of luggage that comes snuggled inside your main suitcase. A backpack has multiple storage compartments that secure with a zipper, and it easily stores in the overhead bins. Best of all, you can sling it over your shoulder for easy transport.

2. Store your valuables in the backpack during the flight. This will keep them in sight, but also protects them. A 35mm SLR camera and a handheld transceiver (H-T, to you ham radio ops out there), bit the dust on separate trips because I stashed them in the suitcase. Even though I wrapped them in clothing, they still got jostled enough to break. A very costly learning experience.

3. Make photocopies of your passport. Leave one copy at home or with a trusted friend. The others are stashed in your room safe. (If you don’t have access to a safe, hide the paperwork in rolled up clothing.) If your passport is lost or stolen, the sooner you can provide the consulate or embassy with a photocopy, the faster you’ll get a new passport. You may even consider scanning the appropriate page, and leaving that file home. Your contact there can easily e-mail the file, should that become necessary.

So, you live in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area and would like a brand new experience during your vacation this year. You have probably done and seen just about everything there is to offer within a few hundred miles of the metroplex. Last spring break you and the family rode the coasters at Six Flags, or built castles of sand on the Gulf Coast. Possibly, you traveled to the Texas Hill Country, witnessed some old German heritage, and felt the chill of the river at Schlitterbahn. However, this year, the options don't seem as plentiful. Could it be there is an area almost untouched by man, smothered in wilderness and beauty? An area where people of all ages can enjoy. One that can be reached via automobile in about three hours from Dallas. The answer is yes, but most North Texas residents don't even know it exists.

Welcome to Southeast Oklahoma and the Beavers Bend and Broken Bow Lake recreational areas. Now, some of you may be thinking Oklahoma is nothing but windy plains and tornado warnings. However, the far Eastern section of the state is covered with Smoky Mountain style wilderness. In particular, the far Southeastern town of Broken Bow and the area just to the north. This is where Beavers Bend State Park and Broken Bow Lake are located. The state park offers activities ranging from horseback riding to fly fishing. The lake is clear and cold, as the water runs out of the Kiamichi Mountains year round. Trees and jutting rocks surround the lake, as well as it's pristine shoreline. Even though it is a man made lake, you will see little evidence that man has even been there.

While visiting, you will have a multitude of lodging options. Most vacationers choose to stay in a private Beavers Bend cabin rental or camp out at Beavers Bend State Park. The private cabins range from $75 - $600 per night and can accommodate anywhere from one person to a dozen or so. If you are looking for a luxury vacation cabin or a Beavers Bend getaway, one of the local cabin management companies should be able to suit your needs. It is recommended to book your cabin several months out for major holidays and spring and summer vacations. If you decide to pitch a tent or bring an RV, make arrangements early, as spots are limited and fill up fast during Spring and Summer breaks.

4. Copy any pertinent medical records and prescription information as above.

You did it again, didn't you? Forgot until the last minute that birthday, anniversary, graduation, promotion, or fill-in-the-blank-here. No fear, online florists are here. No longer do you have to work in that lunch time stop at the florist shop. Now customized flowers are just a hop, skip, and click away. With the added bonus of being in an international market, most of these online florists offer same day delivery to cover up even the most forgetful patrons.

The time factor is just one of the conveniences that online florists offer over their in-store competitors. In addition to saving time and having online tracking to verify your order, you can get virtual pictures of bouquets, so you don't have to leave anything to the imagination.

There are also some online florists who offer not only national but international delivery as well.

Online florists aren't just for flowers, either. If the typical dozen roses routine won't do, order some chocolate or a gourmet coffee basket. Personalized cards and gift ideas are a feature on most online florist websites. The virtual world of flora offers a variety that your local shop just can't compete with. As the times move ahead, and faxes and email replace the post office, it would be foolish if the sentimental laboratory of florists couldn't keep up.

Holding on to the romantic notion of the local flower shop? No worries. In most cases, the order you place online will get farmed out to a local florist who will make the delivery to your loved one, colleague, or secret admiree. So the "shop around the corner" is not lost, but in the spirit of the rest of the World Wide Web, the global community has in fact come to not only your email box, your netflix queue and your office conference calls, but now also to your local flower shop.
