Boyfriend and I are at a crossroads after 6 years. He's in Chicago and I just left to move to San Francisco. After several months apart not speaking much, we plan to spend our December holiday making some big together-or-not decisions.

Bit of a wide open question but all suggestions and specific recommendations welcome! [more inside]

Does anyone know how I can get this article from the Reno Gazette-Journal about the Harvey's Lake Tahoe bombing, for free? You can access the depreciated site here, but the links and images are all dead. I searched on their archives, but it looks like you need to buy all the parts of the article separately.

ChevyTahoeFilter: I just passed 100k miles on my 01 chevy tahoe. There are various little issues like alignment, some wierd noises, belts need to be replaced, brakes, etc.. I never got the 90k mile checkup and it goes without saying that i havent got the 100 mile checkup either. Where do you recommend i take my vehicle to have this done? I can go to the dealership but im paying a huge premium there, do you recommend any other places that do these checkups? FYI....Im in the Dallas Tx area, specifically north Dallas.

A buddy and I are going on a road trip starting the 28th of December for 8 days. Our first destination is the Grand Canyon but after that, who knows. Being the anal retentive that I am, I sort of plotted out a route that took us from the GC to Zion then Bryce then Salt Lake City then across upper Nevada to Tahoe. I was wondering, is this too ambitious? Are there cooler things to see or places to visit? How about places to avoid?
