New Car: Prius

Amber had been driving a Corolla for a while, which was unacceptable. So we decided to get a new car for her. One of the major requirements was that its gas consumption be better than the Corolla (city 26mpg, Hwy 36mpg, combined 30mpg). From the short list fitting that requirement, we decided to check out… Continue reading New Car: Prius

Abu Dhabi

The Formula Rossa roller coaster was really fast and the Formula 1 simulation was a lot of fun too.

North Georgia Snake Run

Over the Christmas break, a friend was visiting and we decided to head to our usual haunts in North Georgia. We hiked part of the Appalachian trail from Woody Gap.

Honda Civic R.I.P.

Amber’s car was in the workshop since her accident. Now, we have found out that the frame of the car is damaged and our insurance is declaring the car a total loss.
