Everywhere the signs

So trailing behind stenciled instructions to TRY KRATOM, the streetside signs around where I live trend heavily - and I mean borderline Twilight Zone level - toward advertisements for flag football. I've seen signs for youth leagues, coed leagues, men only, two-hand touch, flag, and on and on, more flavors of flag football than I would ever have imagined could exist. [more inside]

What is living under my deck (and freaking out my dog)?

Today, my normally backyard-loving dog refused to come out onto the back deck/porch and into the yard. This is very unlike him, and even the tastiest of treats could not persuade him to step more than a few feet out onto the deck. Further investigation revealed a soft high-pitched chirping coming from underneath the deck. I'm assuming something is living under there, and scaring my (wimpy) puppy. What could it be? (Possibly relevant details inside) [more inside]

Essentials are: 1) on a sandy beach with swimmable water, and 2) as secluded from other people as possible. Budget would be less than $300/night. [more inside]

Moving and want to buy a car...but don't want to pay state fees twice.

I currently live in DC and am moving to NC on August 13th. I am planning to purchase a new car at some point in the next two months. Ideally, it would be before the move because that means a safer and roomier ride down. But I can't figure out if we might have to pay a bunch of fees twice - and can't get a straight answer from dealers. [mi] [more inside]

Appointment(s) with new dentist: is this normal?

Is it normal for a new dentist to expect one appointment for an exam/x-rays, a separate appointment for a cleaning, and then another follow-up appointment for any work that needs to be done (and I'm fairly sure I need at least one filling, possibly a crown)? Also, is it true that no dentists offer warm rinsing/jet water? (Do you know one that does offer this near Durham, NC?) [more inside]

What marine life offshore North Carolina can cause histaminic reaction?

My daughter felt something solid while swimming on a North Carolina beach this morning (July 25) and now has a raised welt about 2.5 x 4 cm with a somewhat larger reddish area around it. It is mildly painful. There are no visible foreign bodies, stingers, etc. What could it be? She doesn't seem to be having any severe symptoms that would require an emergency room visit.

Help us plan a Southern road trip from Chicago!

We have 7-10 days for a road trip (leaving from Chicago in a couple days) and are thinking of exploring the South by car. Where should we stop, and what should we see? Thoughts we've had include driving towards Florida or Savannah and hitting Cattanooga, Asheville, Bowling Green, and/or Nashville. We will have one dog with us, so bonus points for State Parks or Forests where we can hike with her, but we'd like to see some towns or cities, too. Thank you, hive mind!
