Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me (Car Edition)

I'm a first time car owner and I do not understand cars at all. How can I learn about cars, or enough about my car, that I'm not taken advantage of by mechanics/dealers when I repair/buy cars? [more inside]

South UK / London area with kids in June -- farmstay?

Hi all -- Looking for recommendations as we put together a trip for 10-12 days, starting and departing London. Our party is 2 adults and 2 kids (3.5 years and 1.5 years). We've had great success with farmstays in the past. Train rides are also fun. Any thoughts on places to visit or farmstays? We'll want to do a few days in London but also get out -- seaside or country or both in the time we have. Ideally we'll travel by rail (trains are fun!) but we could drive. Looking for less-touristy, more funky or strange kind of stuff. Walking treks, or renting bikes, etc. Thanks!

Is a Skedaddle bus to the Women's March a good idea?

Hi, we're planning to board a bus in Bangor, Maine on Friday night, drive 10 hours to RFK Stadium, get out and march and so forth, then go back to the bus and ride back to Maine. The vehicle is a 12-seater arranged by Skedaddle ... no sanitary facilities. Online reviews are scarce and the company supplies no specifics about the vehicle; we're concerned about reliability, safety, comfort, et cetera. Does anybody have any relevant experience or information? Will this be a good trip? (Sleep will be important because we have responsible work before and after.) Thanks!

Cheap August stay in Martha's Vineyard?

I'm going out to Martha's Vineyard in early August 2017 to baby sit for a few weeks. I spent a long weekend there in 2016 doing the same. Since my employers made their plans last minutes, I ended up taking an indirect bus to MV and stayed in the hostel. It was a great experience, but I'd like this year's trip to go smoother for me.

How do you say "10-4 Good buddy!" in 21st century America?

I'm going to help a friend who is making a long-distance (~1500 miles) interstate move. I'll be driving his car, and he'll be driving a rental truck. I guess back in the 70's we'd get ourselves CB radios and be a "convoy". But it's now 2017 ... [more inside]

Solar Eclipse Road Trip to Grand Island, Nebraska - Any tips?

We are considering taking a road trip to Grand Island, Nebraska in August to see the solar eclipse. We need to decide now to schedule work vacations. Can anyone recommend places to stay or eat in the area? Are there any good attractions? What about things to do or see on the drive from the Twin Cities area? We know the Omaha Zoo is one of the best in the country. Is there anywhere else we should plan on stopping?
