How do you visit a point of interest on a military base?

While visiting Kansas City, Google maps suggested I visit the spot where the Santa Fe and Oregon trails meet. The only problem? It’s on the Fort Leavenworth military base. How would a civilian check it out? I can’t find any info about how to visit it online. [more inside]

How much tax will I pay to bring a pair of skis back into Canada?

I am thinking of buying a pair of used skis in Denver, and bring them back to Vancouver. The price will be $999 USD, i.e. approx $1300 CAD. The personal exemption is $800 for my 2-3 day trip. There are no duties on skis, but do I pay PST/GST on the excess ($500) or the entire value ($1300)? Just trying to figure out whether I'm really gonna be saving much.

How to hang out alone in Lawrence, Kansas

I'll have 2 weeknight evenings alone in Lawrence, Kansas, after 5pm, and may want to stroll (or bike) a quiet beautiful place. Any ideas where a solo business traveler might safely venture in or around Lawrence? I will have a car and enjoy outdoorsy things although the high temps this week are nearly 100. Also enjoy indoor cultural events, but prefer something calming, nature preferred. thank you!

Help my dad have a good time in Wichita, KS?

They're going to see Bela Fleck at the Orpheum next month and would love a hotel recommendation for that night. The ideal would be driving in and parking at the hotel and not getting back in the car until they head back home. Is this doable for a reasonable price? [more inside]
