I’m making (small) payments on a 2014 Honda CRV, bought in 2018. It’s starting to show some wear and tear, and I’m getting worried I should trade it in. [more inside]
I messed up big time and forgot to check my passport renewal date. Now I have international travel planned in about a month. It looks like I have two options and I’m wondering if anyone has experience with these? [more inside]
When my wife & I take road trips, I do a lot of the driving because my wife really doesn't like to drive on major freeways. (Merging traffic makes her nervous, particularly if she's the one merging from an on-ramp.) She's perfectly fine with driving on two-lane or divided four-lane "surface highways", though. Is it possible (on Google Maps or any other mapping app) to easily identify which roads on a long-distance route are controlled-access highways vs. smaller roads? Short of using Street View to preview the whole damn route? [more inside]

I live in a 2-family house. We are thinking of installing a level-2 charger. We would like to let our neighbor use the same charger, if they get an EV. What is the best way to keep track of how much each of us is charging, so we can share the electricity cost? [more inside]
Coming from Portland, OR, I need--ASAP-- a place to spend a week to 10 days alone without anyone bothering me. Have a biological attraction to wilderness, alpine, ocean front, mountains, plains, high desert. Just give me space and a space.
We're planning to spend a few months at a time in Los Angeles and Georgia, and the biggest concern (of course) is keeping our cats with us for the longer durations. Any suggestions, tips, from frequent flyers with house cats on how to best go approach getting them coast to coast? [more inside]
About a month ago, while looking for a hotel in Chicago for October 6-8, all the hotel rates I saw were about twice as high as normal (~$400/night instead of the usual ~$200/night). What's going on in Chicago next weekend to make the rates so high?
I will be flying from Chicago to Philly on Saturday morning, and my brother just forwarded me an ominous message from a friend who saw some shutdown related chaos already in airports. Anyone got any inside intel or tips? [more inside]
I now have a 100% remote job, and want to couple that with visiting family and friends, most likely with a 1-3 week lead time. What sites do you use to find the best deals?
We are going to Portland, Maine for a weekend in October. We plan to go for a drive to see foliage (and we are willing to do a long drive for that), but what else should we do, see and eat? Snowflake details inside! [more inside]
I'm helping someone renew their recently expired UK passport. They (and I) live in the USA. Also, the UK government's helpful online tool doesn't load... what now? [more inside]
I'm planning to buy a house in the next year in an area I'm still very unfamiliar with. To get my feet wet, I want to start going to open houses. Is there an app that will help me figure out what order to look in when there are several at around the same time? This is in Utah if that helps. [more inside]
USAian visiting Rome in a few weeks - trying to load up my phone with apps I might use there. So far I've got Omio, The Fork, Tiqets, Maps.me and a couple of others. What are your best recommendations? Is there a good Uber/Lyft equivalent or Taxi app?
I'm thinking of going from the East Coast to Dublin then Edinburgh from mid- to late October. Would 10 days be enough for both cities? I've never been to either. I could go as long as 12 days. [more inside]
My parents and I are going to San Diego for a week in mid-November. What should we definitely not miss while we're there? [more inside]

We're planning to visit Portugal at the end of the year. Yes, we know that this is not the ideal time to visit, but this is what's worked out on the schedule. We've spent more time in central/south Portugal, want to see some of the north this time. [more inside]
I am trying to find out more information about a serious car accident that I narrowly escaped being a part of but am having trouble getting a confirmation that the accident even occurred. Can you help? More info inside. [more inside]
How can I best drop off two kids, via a walking commute, on a very rainy day? Kids in question are a baby (needs to be in a carrier or stroller) and a preschooler (can scoot, walk, ride on the back of the stroller, or stroll if baby is in carrier). The walk is about 15 minutes though slower if preschooler is walking/scooting. Keeping this open ended so I can hear how others do it. I'd also love to hear about the gear you use for kids and adults.
