Where will Manifold team have an offsite in July or August?
We're doing an offsite in Mexico City in June: https://manifold.markets/Austin/how-many-people-will-stay-at-mexifo And likely one in Washington DC in September: https://manifold.markets/noumena/will-i-be-part-of-a-group-renting-t But in between, we'd like to have another offsite sometime in July or August. Where and when should this be? Some ideal qualities in an offsite location: - Comfortably house + work 10+ people - Not too expensive: <1.5k/night for 10ish nights - Close to cool stuff to do - Flights are not difficult or expensive - Good weather Oh, and ideally we'd be close to EAs/awesome startup people. (Or be able to convince a lot of them to join us!)

It's summer time so we should go somewhere northern! Alaska is really interesting and Anchorage is the largest city. We can stay downtown, near other young people. It's clean, there's cool bars, lots of hiking and water sports on the lakes/ocean. July/August is the time of year with the best weather and tourism in Anchorage (https://weatherspark.com/y/252/Average-Weather-in-Anchorage-Alaska-United-States-Year-Round) The days also have ~18 hours of sunlight, which I argue will make us more productive, haha!
I like the idea of Alaska (never been!) and going north for the summer. Though I don't see great housing options for Anchorage; things seem to be some combination of more expensive, less large, and less "nice" haha. This seems to be the best? https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/30687017?check_in=2022-08-01&check_out=2022-08-08&guests=1&adults=12&s=67&unique_share_id=820f5e70-87dd-40a0-8f2e-01c327ace4ef
Haha would be pretty down actually! The houses themselves actually look really cheap, here's one I like: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/35895424?check_in=2022-07-20&check_out=2022-08-03&guests=1&adults=12&s=67&unique_share_id=865933e5-9735-43fb-a235-d8f1d60a1822
From an FX perspective, this is the best time to go. https://manifold.markets/Duncan/will-the-turkish-lira-trade-at-high
