re: 7.8 Earthquake in Nepal; 700+ dead; Avalanche Kills 8+ on Everest - VABuckeye
[quote]That's why I asked the question regarding how many are on the mountain on average at one time. Google just told me it can be as many as 20. And now the path down is much more dangerous made up of loose snow and rock from the avalanche. The decent is treacherous enough when they are exhausted ...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - VABuckeye
I prefer to use cards that are attached to miles or points that I can convert to miles. My belief is that I get a much better bang for the buck that way. However, I am limited to available awards space. It sounds like you are in a similar situation to mine and you are flexible on the days you can...

re: Home Surround Sound Questions - VABuckeye
Depends on budget. What I would look for is speakers that have an enclosure or an added enclosure that can be added. You get better acoustical response in the room and much less bleeding of sound to other areas in the house. Believe it or not a stud bay or joist bay is not designed for acoustical...
