comment How long is a typical CouchSurfing stay?
1-3 nights matches my experience, although in one case I ended up subletting a room to a guy for an entire summer.

comment Is there a web-application that provides the ability for interested people on the ground to “stalk” a flight?
NB, FlightAware mainly covers U.S. flights. Coverage for international flights can be hit or miss. I looked up a few LAX-SYD flights, however, and the data was there.

comment Entering Brazil by air, leaving by land, will I be denied entry?
However, see also this question: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/7708/… in which the poster was denied boarding by the airline since he could show neither a Brazilian visa nor a return ticket.

I think being confident in your plans should be enough. A bus ticket and hotel confirmation print-out should be plenty. Remember also, that they will almost certainly not check any reservations you present.

In general I think the level of scrutiny you get depends simply on the particular immigration officer you get.

"17 is the age of majority in New York State". Are you sure? I don't think that's true.

comment Cheapest way to get HON circle status?
The mean distance from the Earth to the moon is 238,900 miles, so a roundtrip will get you to 477,800 miles. The remaining 122,200 miles should be relatively easy to find.

Is that benefit also for premier members? In which case, does no standard award mean no seats at all?

comment How can I find the maximum permitted mileage (MPM) between two cities?
Thanks for the great answer! Could you explain what the various columns of that ExpertFlyer display mean: GI, CUM, MPM,EMS, DED, LSAT, NEXT, 2SM? I guess TPM is the mileage for that segment, CUM is the cumulative total so far, and MPM is the maximum permitted from NYC to each intermediate destination? Does that mean that MPM is enforced for NYC-LON and NYC-SIN in addition to NYC-HKG? (Thus preventing you from circumventing MPM via hidden city ticketing?)
