Horse Racing Question

I know nothing about horse racing, I am writing about a racetrack for non-bettors, and I cannot find a simple and fast definition for "average daily handle" despite my search chops. Is it the amount of money bet in a single day? Many thanks for speedy responses, I'm on a deadline.

Best affordable summer camp/canoe trip supplies for 12yo boy

We are not outdoor people but our son is excited to go to canoeing camp in New England this summer. This means he'll probably encounter variable weather and temperatures.

What did I witness zooming past me on I79?

On Saturday June 1st I was traveling north on I79 in WV. Somewhere around mile marker 65 this group of 7 or 8 cars passed me all going well over 100 mph. It was a mix of sporty vehicles that you don't expect to see in this area. I remember an Audi R8 leading the pack, followed by a Lamborghini, a Ferrari, a few nondescript hatchbacks, trailed by a Chrysler Crossfire convertible. [more inside]
