Should I Stay or Should I Go?

I've had it it mind to go watch the eclipse. I'm in Maine, have family in Ohio who I could visit, then drive to the tip of Kentucky to view it. Weather is looking a bit iffy, but probably okay. I would have to leave tomorrow morning (Friday), so that I have plenty of driving cushion. I have seen an annular eclipse, very cool. [more inside]

I test drove a 2015 Honda Fit yesterday (30k miles), and it was kind of terrible. Do I try again with a new (2017 or 2018) Fit, or look for a different subcompact (and if so, which one)? [more inside]

Trailer and trailer hitch basics

We have a 2013 Subaru Forester, and I would like to get a little utility trailer to transport small equipment (mower, snow blower), take stuff to the dump, and to take home bulky purchase from Home Depot (e.g., insulation batts, mulch, plywood sheets). If I'm buying a trailer, I'd likely get an open bed and stay off highways, but I'd like the ability to rent a trailer I might vacation with. A bike rack is also possible. I know absolutely nothing else about trailers and hitches. Help? [more inside]

Go West, young man

I have a loose itinerary for a road trip from Milwaukee to Wyoming and Colorado. I want to run it by y'all to see if it's realistic or too ambitious, since I'll be solo (car) camping. Priorities for places to stay: quiet, DARK, scenic. Not interested in cities/town, food, or lodging. [more inside]

What to do in Mexico (Missouri, that is)?

(Asking for a friend) We’re headed to Mexico MO next weekend for the eclipse. Rather than fight traffic, we’ll be arriving on Saturday. So what do we do when we’re not watching the eclipse? We like interesting hikes, nice restaurants as well as dives/local gems, and anything on the quirky side or unique to the area.

Do I really need to pay to look at the sky during the eclipse?

I am planning to be in Nebraska or Missouri for the eclipse. There are a number of places I could go that have festivals, fields you can pay to park in, etc. What are the chances of just randomly finding a place off a rural road where I can park, throw my camping chair on the nearby grass, pop open the cooler, and enjoy the day in peace away from people and traffic?
