  • How to Remove a Stuck CD

    Terrific! Thanks for the post @ajbartl1.
  • Road Trip!

    lol, that particular pole is holding up the porch roof. You don't want to hear about my saga with CenturyLink and my five phone calls, six emails and one chat trying to get internet here. "It's not possible" even though the sellers had it and I have a copy of their recent net bill that I've waived in the phone company's digital face. It might be easier to make a connection by climbing a pole!
  • A Tale of Two Road Trips - 2014 Acura MDX AWD Long-Term Road Test

    Unless you can find a dealer willing to loan you a car overnight or can find one to rent, it's hard to get enough seat time in a car during test drives to really know how the seats are going to fit you over a long day of driving. And everyone is built differently, so what fits me may kill your back.
  • 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    FWD in Maryland? You must have a short flat driveway. My sister got stuck a few times a year in N. VA until she got a Subaru. :)

    I'm getting TMV of $31,279 - that's including that same $1,000 incentive. So you need to take your quote of $33k and back out the taxes and fees to see how the actual selling price of the car compares to TMV.

    Looks like Fitzmall has one en route for $33,492 so not a good price, and I don't think that one even has the Premium Package.
  • Subaru Crew Problems & Solutions

    Yep, saved a few sentimental things, bikes and camping gear, and left the rest behind. A newly divorced guy snapped the house right up and wanted everything, so I didn't have to try to parcel stuff out. I had borrowed a ~36" Finish barn loom the last year in the UP, having sold my big floor loom the year before. Gave that back so am between looms, but my wife has her smallish tapestry loom. It's pretty portable and lightweight. Going to wait until we get settled to get one for myself. Lots of weavers down here so it shouldn't be too hard to find a nice used one.

    Oh, we managed to make a deal to get the bedroom set and antique Mexican dining room table in this house we're trying to buy. We'll buy some patio furniture for the living room to tide us over while we hunt for real furniture. Yet another reason to keep the van a while.
