Re: Bye Bye Sky-High Rental Car Fees

Former Member ·
Thanks, that was a good article. I got some ideas from it! I always get confused about whether I need to take insurance from the rental and it's always sky-high. I have some credit cards that say they cover it, but I hadn't realized that a lot of time my own car insurance would cover me with the rental. Boy, have we wasted a bunch! The other idea I liked there was taking pictures of the car before you leave their office so you can show them if they try to say you scratched up the car. Feels...

"Does the rest of the picture suggest somewhere else?" Sorry, Sr. Puzzler, in a word, no. At least for me, with 3 of the 4 clues where Gumbo isn't, and the one that is, mostly a bunch of weeds. I'll be truly impressed by those who come up with the actual location.

I think that's it! The benches look the same, even the palm trees, a clump of 2 and another of 5 on the left and the bunch on the right. And the piling out of line on the left. That's got to be it. Good job.

Re: Worlds Cheapest Phone?

Is it locked to T-Mobile, or can other SIMs be used? By the way, walking home tonight I saw a bunch of TracFones at 7-11. FlashFlyer, if you want one, now's the time. They've got a $20 model on sale for...wait for it...$7.11!

Re: Planning a Road Trip

Dan Carter ·
Hey, guys...thanks for a bunch of good ideas! I think the 3-wheel bike is not for me, but the idea of buying an old ragtop and then selling it appeals to me. Not even sure I'll need a car living in Seattle, but don't know yet (job is near the waterfront, but don't know where I can afford to live!) National Parks idea sounds really good to me...I've loved the ones I've been to before. Shunpiking? I didn't make that up! This is from Merriam Webster:
