Shipping framed movie posters from Toronto to Victoria B.C.

Does someone have a suggestion for shipping a couple of *flat* movie posters from Toronto to Victoria, B.C.? I was hoping to pay up to $200*, but I understand that hoping is often forlorn. [more inside]

What are your favorite short hikes?

I've been doing a lot of hiking this past year, and I have come to especially appreciate the kind of hike that you can do before lunch and still have time and energy left to do other stuff in the afternoon (work, sightsee, even do another hike). So like, a chill 2-3 hour hike, not too hard. What are your very favorite short hikes in North America? [more inside]

I’ve done as much reading as I can but if anyone could give me first-hand tips on the following I would be very grateful. [more inside]

COVID test in Busan, South Korea

We are traveling from Korea to the U.S., and need to show a negative COVID test at the airport. Has anyone had good luck with a particular site? It seems like some locations only send you a text message with the result, which doesn’t seem to satisfy the requirements.

Post jump start Prius

We had to have the 2012 Prius jump started yesterday because it wouldn't start. Probably the battery drained because an internal light was left on. After the jump, the car was left idling in the driveway for over an hour. My question is, what should I do today? Should I wait until the weather gets up to the predicted high of 20 F this afternoon and drive around? [more inside]

Second opinion, please (Car filter)

Previously. My friend says it's ok to drive a car on a battery when the alternator is bad, because "you can charge a battery up again." I said, "I read driving a car on a bad alternator drains the battery." [more inside]

Vibration in car after new tires and front struts

Last fall for my 2008 Mazda 5, I got a set of four new tires, and shortly afterwards replaced the front struts. I haven't been driving a lot these days, and when I drove on the freeway recently at about 60mph/100kph I noticed a vibration that can be felt both by the driver and the passenger. It's not excessive, but it's noticeable. Is it likely a tire issue, or a struts issue? [more inside]

Point of diminishing returns, or not? [Car filter]

I have a lovely 2011 Hyundai Accent that I believe the alternator went out on yesterday (we did the voltage test after the battery light came on). A friend was going to fix it, no big deal he said, but now we are under a Winter Storm Warning. So I might have to take it into my regular mechanic Monday, who is a great guy, but you know, more money. The friend also recommended getting the electrical system checked. [more inside]

I want to see the Atlantic Ocean. I'm pretty sure he does, too.

I'm sorry, my google-fu can't even. My dog and I would like to spend a couple of days walking on the beach and gazing at the Atlantic Ocean. We would like to do this as soon as possible. We are not deterred by cold, snow or ice, only by crowds of people without masks. [more inside]

2018 Toyota Yaris iA problems

I have a 2018 Toyota Yaris iA (which is sold as a Mazda 2 in other markets), automatic, and didn't drive it enough during the pandemic. It's having increasingly severe problems: First it needed to be repeatedly jump started, then maintenance lights on the dash turned on. Now it seems to be having problems shifting gears. My guess is that it needs a new battery, but I'd like to know if there could be something else causing these issues, and if it's something I can fix or if I need a professional. [more inside]
