re: Is Take 5 Oil Change any good? - Tigris
They just bought out a couple of oil change places that were my regular places before. The price went up, they push harder to sell every service under the sun, now I can't get out and get a cup of coffee in the waiting area like I used to. I don't care for Take 5, and am taking my business elsewhe...

re: A passenger airliner carrying 180 people has crashed in Tehran - Tigris
[quote]we were dead over Iraq lol.[/quote] I did that from Istanbul to Saudi Arabia a few months ago. Weird feeling. It was interesting that Iraq is still flaring tons of natural gas while Saudi had very few flares. In the late 90's I flew from Amsterdam to Dubai and KLM took us directly ove...

re: Worst flight experience for you - Tigris
Continental - 2 hour holding pattern over Houston on a BTR to IAH propeller flight. Worst turbulence I've ever seen, by FAR, for at least an hour. Without seat belts our heads would have banged on the ceiling repeatedly. There was a tornado on the ground next to IAH while we were circling. Am...

re: Subaru Outback or Toyota Highlander - Tigris
I've got a 2012 Outback with 104k miles and really like it. At 98k miles I replaced the original tires, did the brake pads, and did the bearings. That is all for maintenance. I plan to sell it at around 175k miles based on that history. With AWD it pulls my boat out of the ramp nicely and handle...
