comment Retired couple wishing to spend more time in owned USA property
The tax issue is the big risk here. As best I can tell if the IRS decides you are a US tax resident you will be required to pay income tax to the IRS regardless of the source of the taxable benefit. Once that happens you will most likely need to hire a specialized tax accountant to file in both countries so that you aren't taxed twice. I know many Canadian snowbirds in that situation. It can be done, but it seems to regularly blow up into multi-year tax disputes that cost the taxpayer a small fortune to resolve.

comment Can I bring a cooking knife to the Maldives?
+1 It's probably worth noting that for immigration purposes a complete set of professional cooking knives might be interpreted as evidence that you intend to work illegally in the country you are entering.

@Flimzy's comment should be converted to an answer. It is better than any of the answers so far.

There does exist a good answer to this very question. I've even met travel agent who specializes in learning-to-surf trips. We just need someone who knows what they're talking about to answer.

comment Rental car insurance in Australia
What "fine print of the rental agreement" have your reviewed? You don't mention a Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) or Collision Damage Waiver (CDW). Those are often separate from the normal rental agreement.
