Solution: Buy an even older car. If it’s old enough and interesting enough, the little quirks and problems will be worth it. And chances are it’ll be simpler, and therefore easier to fix. Find yourself something like a Volvo 850.

Taliesin West is arguably a must-see if you’re interested in architecture. I really like the Desert Botanical Garden, and the mountain preserves are great for easy in-city day hikes with kids. Take them to see some cougars and wolves being lovingly rehabilitated at the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center in Read more

How far are you willing to drive?

Most of my time has been spent in the Tuscon-ish area. If you’re into aircraft, check out the Pima Aviation Museum. If you’re into cute/quaint tourist/artsy/bohemian towns, check out Bisbee. If you’re into hikes and nature views unlike anything else, I’d highly recommend Chiricahua Read more

I’ve found them to be, by far, the best winter tires I’ve used. Hakka 8 & 9, and R3. I bought the R2 for my brother to use on his Odyssey, and he loves them. Read more

I have the Nokian WRG4 on my STi. They were pretty good at what I bought them for, winter driving. Granted, I live in Los Angeles so that concept is laughable. But that is why I did not buy a dedicated true snow tire. This tire survived on my three week trip to Utah, Wyoming, and Montana where I was pounded with snow, Read more

A group of youths in my neighborhood rented a couple of scooters, took them to the local soccer field, and used them to play a polo/soccer hybrid. Read more

That's funny, because I just got an email from your wife saying that you should definitely buy it! I'm off of work tomorrow if you want to meet me at the notary :-)
