Default Testing out a new website

Tok RV Village - Tok Alaska's finest RV Park on the Alaska Highway

My dad owns an RV park in the middle of no where rural Alaska and he paid someone to build him a website this past fall. It looks nice but I've found that I get errors depending on what browser i'm using in OS X.

The errors I'm seeing are graphical and vary from tab to tab. Like if you go to locations sometimes I get some crazy garbled textual error where the graphics should be above the map. Sometimes the top graphics will be green squares.
Things like that mostly

If anyone has a chance, please check out the website and let me know of any errors you're encountering because I can't reproduce any single error and it makes me think it has something to do with flash and OS X.

It also appears i just passed 8k posts, geez.

I'm doing something wrong? I had nothing to do with the construction of the site. If typing the url in the address bar and pushing enter is doing something then I'm clearly lost oh elite creator of the internetz.

Your website skills might be better than the guy that built this site but my skills are no where near as good as his. I would have to learn a lot before I could even replicate this site.

yeah, i saw that on few pages too. honestly - tell your dad to demand a refund because this is nowhere near acceptable. if anything, it will make your dads business look worse.

if you need a cheap site with nothing fancy, i can hook you up @ my cost (you pay directly to the designer.)

I'll talk to him about it. I'm not happy with the site.
What does your designer charge for a website like this? PM is fine if it's a private matter.

Clicked everything I could find with Opera, works fine. Except one of the pictures is missing on the RV Park & Cabins page. rv_cabin_2.jpg is gone.

Tried it with Chrome on win7. Worked fine.

I can't comment on how good the code is, but I like th feel of the site. It feels right for business it represents (from a graphics perspective).

Works on Mozilla fine for me. Don't really see any problems with it.

I really like how Alaska is spelled Alaksa on the main image. Classy.

Just saw a typo-
Under "Local Activities" there needs to be a space after the comma:
"Visit mini-museums on Alaska pioneer life,gold mining and Alaska wildlife."

And at the bottom of the list it says they have a greased pole. What's that for?
