In a few weeks I'll be driving down I-85 from Petersburg VA to Atlanta GA and would like to fill the trip with occasional stops to see and explore places with historical and/or cultural significance. Can anyone suggest places I should see on my drive? Battlefields? Great barbecue? Birthplace of patriots? Controversial schools? Whatever, I just don't want to miss an opportunity to learn and see as much as possible. Ideally they should be no more than about 10 miles from the interstate.

My wife and I are going to Scotland to see friends and family, and since I always wanted to summit Snowdon I thought I would look into a side trip to Wales. Does this itinerary makes sense?

Looking for some advice on moving a one bedroom apartment worth of stuff from Connecticut to North Carolina the week of New Years! Legitimate moving companies (Atlas/United/etc.) can't do it in such short notice. Renting a UHaul/Budget van is as expensive as using a company with little/no reviews. Any other suggestions? Any specific references for a reputable company which can make this happen? Thanks!

I'm coordinating a project that involves sending participants to remote communities in the Canadian North. The communities have varying speeds of internet connection, but in general, I've been told it's pretty slow, and sometimes bandwidth is restricted.
