re: Mt. Rushmore - Yellowstone - Grand Teton trip - nctiger71
[quote]The idea for the trip came from my 10yo. She is very much into history and has been begging to go to Mt Rushmore and DC. [/quote]Well that’s cool that she likes history. DC is great, we’ve been 5 or 6 times as it’s not a long drive for us, but I think most 10 yo would enjoy the trip out west...

re: Vehicle History Reports: Ever look up your old cars? - nctiger71
We usually buy new and keep them 12 to 15 years. We just got rid of a 2005 Toyota Avalon that had about 203,000 miles on it. We gave it to our son and if he keeps it I will not be surprised if he puts another 100k on it. The issue with keeping modern cars that long is not the engine or transmis...

Voted Friday, the 2nd day of early voting here, and had to wait about 5 minutes to sign in and get my ballot at 6:30 pm. My neighbor had to wait about an hour where he went but he voted earlier in the day also....
