Santiago Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Santiago de Chile, a city of extremes, is surrounded by the world’s longest mountain range, driest desert, largest ocean and southernmost grassy plains. The cosmopolitan South American capital has the perfect mix of both historic and ultra-modern attractions.

The lively Plaza de Armas houses the divine Metropolitan Cathedral and the National History Museum. Santa Lucía Hill is the place where the city was founded by the Spanish in the 16th-century and the Chilean Museum of pre-Colombian Art shows what life was like here before colonial rule.

La Moneda Palace is the seat of government and the place of Augusto Pinochet’s 1973 military coup. The Museum of Memory and Human Rights documents the dictator’s repressive regime.

Santiago has many city parks. Parque Bicentenario is in Vitacura, while the sculptures of Parque de las Esculturas are in Providencia. Centrally located Parque Forestal, houses the Museum of Contemporary Art. Nearby is Centro Cultural Estación Mapocho, in a former train station.

Find colorful street art, craft shops and sidewalk cafés in Bellavista. From this neighborhood, you can access Cerro San Cristóbal to look back at Santiago one more time before exploring Chile’s many natural treasures.

Horse Trailer Tips – Painting Flooring- Exposed Wire – Rick Gore Horsemanship

Horse Trailer Tips – Painting Flooring- Exposed Wire – Rick Gore Horsemanship

Horse trailer loading tips. I talk about securing the loading door when teaching a horse to load or sacking out on a trailer. I talk about exposed wires on a trailer and painting or protection your floorboards to prevent rotting or aging. I put mats over the boards, the mats hold moisture and stuff on the boards so that is why it is important to clean out and wash your trailer after each use. Horses should NOT be transported on just boards with no mats. The wind, dust, rocks, road splatter and other debris gets blown up through the cracks making the ride much more scary and hard on the horse. Always have mats over the boards, it protects the horse, cushions the ride better, prevents noise and road sound, blocks dust and road debris, protects the wood from the hooves scratching and chipping the wood and distributes the horse’s weight more evenly over the wood, which makes the floor stronger and is one wood plank would break the mat would help the horse from falling through it.

Just a few reminders to keep your trailer in top shape, you are carrying cargo that you care about and it is your responsibility to protect and keep your horse safe when you place him in a trailer. Ensuring the floor is safe and strong is a key part to making sure your horse gets somewhere safe, not injured and is not traumatized or has a negative experience in the trailer.

Forgot the mention make sure your horse trailer is LEVEL when parked, if too high or too low it puts pressure and compresses the springs – always level the trailer when parked. Uneven parking also causes flat spots on your tires since more pressure is on one set of tires and less on the other. Moving your trailer every couple of months is good too to help prevent flat spots on tires, rotates tires and so the trailer does not sit on the same spot on tires for long periods of time.

Clutter Video Tip: Options for Garage Storage Cabinets-

Hi. I’m Lorie Marrero, & today’s Clutter Video Tip is about garage floor options.

What we have done in this garage is used an epoxy kit that we bought at our local home improvement center. This took about 0 for a three-car garage. & it was about a 3-5 day process. I want to explain how we did this & then you can decide what options make sense for you.

We had a garage floor that had 6 plus years of accumulated oil stains & other car fluids that are unknown & we also had spilled paint on the floor. It was dark green, it was horrible. I got sick of looking at that all the time & when you have your normal car fluids that get on the floor, they really do absorb into the concrete, so it’s a good idea to do some kind of servicing just to make it easier to clean. We did this epoxy kit. The first day you clean it. & there’s a product called Jasco that I highly recommend that helped us remove a lot of the paint that was on the floor. & then the kit comes with a detergent that you use to prepare the floor for the epoxy. You have to let that dry for 24 hours. Then you come back & put the epoxy on in sections. You do one section & then you put the optional plastic flakes on it. This comes in a can, it looks like a can of grated Parmesan cheese. It has these little flakes in it with these holes & then you just shake them out. You do each section, shake on the little particles, & it gives a kind of a granite stone look to the finished product. Then you let that dry for 24 hours. There’s an optional clear coat that we did & I think I would recommend doing that too. That third day, you do the clear coat. & then you have to wait, one or two days, before you can actually park a car on the surface. It takes a while, you’ve got to have your garage completely clear for that amount of time, so you want to think about that & plan for that. & then at the end you have a really good-looking garage floor. We have had some issues, as was predicted by some people, that they say this home improvement center do-it-yourself style of epoxy is going to have problems with what they call “hot tire lift-off.” Yes, where we park the cars, the tires have lifted off pieces of the epoxy over 4 years. For me that’s okay, the cars are usually parked there anyway, so you don’t really see it, & it’s still really easy to clean. All we have to do is hose it out, sweep it out, & the oil stains don’t collect like they used to. It looks really good with minimal tire lifting. There are professional companies that come in & do a more professional grade epoxy & they charge a lot more money. Like I said, this was about 0. My thought at the time when we did this project, I believe it was going to be 0 & upwards to do this three-car garage. That’s why we elected to do it ourselves.

There are other options. You can do tiling, & also large mats that are created for a similar purpose. But you can make a choice based on the price & what works for you. We just found that for us this do-it-yourself option was a good one.

I hope that your garage will be looking good very soon. It’s that time of year. If you want some help with your garage project, we can do that in our Member Message Board area. For the price of a pizza you have unlimited access to our team of organizing experts. You can find out more at

See you next time, & may you always be happy & grateful for having more than enough.
