    There are several of us who put a lot of time into this rally. Thank you! I rented a car last year and the feel in was the same as yours. I AM pressing on the accelerator but WHAT? Oh wait, I am speeding up now, slowly. Maybe I should have rented a PERFORMANCE car, not a cheapest rental...

    OMG, EVP! That was a MEMORY!! Terrifying! We found a bank drive-thru but ICE cars were there, so we went to a gas station and blocked a gas pump till the storm passed. That was one of only two times I parked in a gas station, the other time was in Kansas, also for hail. Hey! As long as you...

    After a little more research, I find that what I wrote above is absolutely true. They do not want to throw out a dose because someone did not show up that day! There is a website to TRACK unused doses. Check it out: Find your Vaccine Hunting Group Find your state down at the bottom. See...
