Not car camping

I would love to plan a getaway to somewhere quiet, scenic, and at least slightly wild. I'm not super picky about exactly where. Many of the less visited national parks are very appealing to me. However, I do not drive and have no plans to get a license, so even renting a car at a destination is a no-go. It seems like most of the national park facilities require visitors to drive in, even if the park proper is carless. Does anyone have suggestions for off the beaten path vacation spots for people who do not drive? [more inside]

Twisting the arm of a car dealer

I bought a new car. The dealer, having sold it to me, revealed to me that they'd misplaced the second key and the manual. Several months later, and I am still down one key and manual. What next? [more inside]

2 person electric scooter? Socially acceptable?

Has anyone ever used a 2-person electric scooter like this one? I'm browsing electric scooters for my husband, and I saw this 2-seater which looks like heaven to me (he needs to be sitting and I don't have the strength to push a wheelchair. If I could be sitting as well that would be simply wonderful). But I thought, if we were tooting down a crowded boardwalk, paved wilderness park trail, or touristy shopping plaza type place, would people consider this inappropriate or give us a hard time about it?

Chicago to Denver - where to stop?

I'm planning a road trip with two of our large adult children (aged 24 and 21), which will include a segment from Chicago to Denver. We're not likely to do lots of Roadside America stuff en route but we'd like to stop overnight somewhere that would have potential for decent food and maybe a craft cider. Is that Des Moines, Omaha, Lincoln? We're all fully vaxxed.

Fun stuff on Phoenix to Eugene road trip

I’m flying to my BFF in Phoenix next week and we will be taking three days or so to drive back to Eugene. It’s her birthday next Friday, so we’d like to do something fun that day. She wants to make it to the coast-so I’m thinking Phoenix to LA then up the coast? How would you break this trip out, assuming three nights (maybe leave Weds afternoon and arrive in Eugene Saturday afternoon)? Your favorite places to stop? We will be doing hotels and love wine and great food-which doesn’t need to be fancy. Your favorite roadside diner is awesome, too. Both fully vaxed.

Fun in Flagstaff, non-Canyon

We are meeting up with friends next weekend now that we are all vaccinated, roughly halfway between us by car, and we decided on Flagstaff as the meeting point just because it's there and the weather is likely to be nice and none of us have ever been there. [more inside]

Vegas, baby

My recently adult kid has informed me she wants to go to Las Vegas. Why not? Feeling vaxed and ready for new experiences. We're a queer, quirky, nerdy family with no interest in gambling and a high capacity for kitch. What should we do in Vegas over, say, a 4 day weekend? [more inside]

Is going to Palenque/San Cristobal de las Casas worth it?

Not sure when I will get to Mexico (see my previous question) but starting to plan again after I cancelled my trip in April 2020. Last time I sadly ruled out getting to San Cristobal/Palenque because they were too off the beaten path for my two week trip but is it worth it to squeeze 'em in if you've been? Details inside...

Looking for fun towns for a Western road trip

My wife and I want to take a road trip Out West (we're based in Chicago) this summer. We want this trip to include parks, hikes, nature, etc. but we also want to visit some fun towns. We like coffee (my wife is a snob), breweries (I'm a snob), and a general vibe of college town or up-and-coming city for younger folks. We like bookstores, good food, etc. [more inside]

Reimbursement for work already done related to Honda recall?

My 2009 Honda Fit has been recalled (again) for an issue where the boots sealing the axle bearing can leak causing the axle to corrode and break. This exact thing happened to my car last year and I spent a lot of money getting the axle replaced. My mechanic at the time said that he fixes this issue on Hondas a lot. Can I get money from Honda for this? [more inside]
