The woods bison I've seen up in the NWT didn't look any bigger than these. However the cloud of mosquitos around each one was huge!
Passed on a bison burger for lunch. Passed on the elk too, which probably would have been good.
Saw a few hundred buffalo, ~8 antelope, and the carrot loving burros on the wildlife loop. And dozens of mountain bluebirds and an American Kestrel standing in the road with a big insect flapping under his right talon. Stared at lots of prairie dogs and the tops of their burrows hoping to spot a burrowing owl, but no luck there. Perfect weather, cool sleeping and there's a stream within spitting distance of the tent that would drown out any noise if there was any. Game Lodge campground in Custer.
Been ripped off by your rental car company? Gotta start watching your hotels too. Sheesh - this one may be ripe for a class action.
My wife and I sold two old cars earlier this year and got a newer minivan that we are using for our move from MI to NM (currently in SD as I type this).
We don't have a baby and don't need two cars when we get to NM. And we got the newer car semi-cheap.
If I owed money on two cars and had a new kiddo, I think I'd try to get them both to MA and invest in some good winter tires. That's not a cheap option but it's a lot cheaper than "swapping" two cars for two other cars. I've lived in snow country for many years and I'm sure you'll see Elantras and 200s getting by in bad weather in MA. Even my San Diego born wife learned to navigate Anchorage in FWD minivans and we never had 4WD or AWD up there. It's the tires. And the driver. (And staying home some days if you have to).
You can appraise your cars here and get an idea of what they would be worth in trade on a new car.

There is a laptop in the Lenova box this trip, but it's up high, behind the infamous Edmunds chair on the left side of the pic. :)
