Hi Investment 🐠,
I want to buy a condo or house that’s a part of a resort community with a rental program, with the idea that I rent it out 99% of the year, and am looking to crowdsource suggestions. It can be in any high end ski, beach, or golf destination within an 8 hour flight radius of New York, with the US, France, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, or Spain preferred. Areas with limited forest fire/hurricane risk are a plus. At least two bedrooms/bathrooms, max budget of $1m. Thanks!
What can I do with 14,000 Marriott points that are expiring and don’t involve using points for a stay?
One of your roommates (and a close friend that you’ve known for years) has a flight to catch. He has a suitcase, a duffle bag (no wheels), and a backpack. In order for him to get to the airport would you:
A) offer to drive him to the airport that’s about .5 miles away (5 minute drive)
B) tell him to order an Uber since you know his work would pay for it
C) tell him to not be lazy and walk half a mile to the nearest public transportation stop, with all that luggage, and take public transit
Not sure this has to do with introversion, but I like doing activities alone, whether travel, concerts, sporting events. Just hate getting dragged in others’ pace
Are travel cards worth it? Not sure if I should get a delta card. Also what’s better Marriott or Hilton rewards?
No United status since I haven’t traveled in ages but I have 84k miles racked up there. Only 14k miles with American but new company is offering AAdvantage Gold. Should I keep building miles with United or switch to an AA loyalist? Based in Chicago. Thanks in advance!

Desperate for ideas on how to deal with insane discovery requests in Florida given the lack of special sets and the time it takes a court to hear a motion for protective order. It's becoming a pattern that we do our objections or a motion for protective order, but OC's immediately move to compel and for sanctions at the discovery deadline. By the time the court decides the issue, it's usually in favor of the party propounding the discovery because they hate overdue discovery and don't even read.
