        <h3>From Tents to Resorts</h3>
          Lake Tahoe is full of wonderful places to stay. You have the ability to sleep in the outdoors in a tent, or relax like a king at a five star resort. Here are our top three resorts:
          <li><a href="#hotels">Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel</a></li>
          <li><a href="#resorts">South Lake Tahoe Resorts</a></li>
          <li><a href="#lodging">Tahoe Ski Resort Lodging</a></li>

      <div class="content-traveling">
        <img src="mtn-landscape.jpg" alt="Mountain Landscape">
        <h3>Pack Accordingly</h3>
          One of most important things when it comes to traveling through the great outdoors is packing accordingly. Here are a few tips:
          <li>Bring layers of clothing</li>
          <li>Pack sunscreen</li>
          <li>Carry extra water just in case</li>
          <li>Pack light</li>
        </div><!-- End .secondary-content -->

        <footer class="main-footer">
            <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
            <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>

You wrote "loading" instead of "lodging". Easy mistake to make!

the answer is

.content-lodging{ float:right; } .content-travelling { float:left; }

content-lodging for task1 content-travelling for task2

For anyone else looking

.content-traveling { float:left; }

Look at the additional l in travelling ;)

You need to add a class 'group' to the Div element in Body. Since the Div already has two classes add one more adjecent to it - like so :

<div class="secondary-content t-border group">

oh, thank you,

sorry i forgot the spelling its content-traveling
