There's a cat that I would really like to adopt, but unfortunately she's been relocated from a shelter in NYC (where I am) to a shelter in Kingston, New York (90 miles north). Are there options to transport her back home that I may be missing? [more inside]

Oregon/Northern CA roadtrip recommendations?

I've never been to Oregon and will be taking a little road trip starting in Portland this August. I'm trying to figure out if we want to fly in/out of Portland or fly into Portland and out of San Francisco. I'm tempted to keep it simple and loop back to Portland. [more inside]

Don't miss stops on the way driving from San Diego to Los Angeles?

I will be driving from San Diego to Los Angeles in mid-August and am wondering where I should stop along the way? Sites not to miss? Leaving San Diego at 8am and arriving Los Angeles maybe around 6 - so I have time (figure that gives me about 5 hours of 'stops'). Have never spent any time in the space North of San Diego and South of Laguna, so mostly interested in that area.

What's it like living in Pennsylvania?

A company I would very much like to work for some day has its headquarters in Pittsburg... and a firm onsite/hybrid attendance policy. I'm curious about what it would be like for me, a lifelong SoCal girl, to move to Pittsburg. Hopefully I'd be working with a yearly income of about $180-200k. What culture shock might await me?

hybrid car kept outdoors - will battery need replacement sooner?

This is a question that seems like it should be simple, but Google is giving me absolute rubbish. We're thinking about buying a used gasoline hybrid, but we only have access to outdoor parking. Winter lows are rarely below freezing here, but we have three months a year where highs of 38 C/100 F are frequent. Should we factor an earlier than usual battery replacement into the running costs? Relatedly, is garage vs. street storage by previous owner an important factor to consider when choosing a used gasoline hybrid?

Toronto, Late Summer: Recs & Side Trips?

We have beloved cousins in Toronto that we visit all the time. We've asked for tips before.

We're interested in fun recs for things to do and places to eat, and this time, we'll have the time to venture a bit outside of town if it's worth it. More inside. [more inside]

How long do I need for Customs in Canada?

I'm planning a trip to Quebec City and found that there are no direct flights from Boston. There are many options with layovers in Montreal or Toronto, but some of them have a very short (less than 1 hour) layover, and I'm wondering if that's enough time to go through Customs and get to the gate for the next flight. Any advice?

With eSIMs, how does calling home internationally work at all?

I'm looking into a prepaid phone+data SIM plan for my Uncle who is visiting Canada. This is the first I've heard of eSIM apps on Android and iPhone. Are eSIMs worth using? Moreover, are they a dealbreaker if my elderly uncle might need to make calls back home internationally, in case of a rare personal exigency? [more inside]
