  • Quote from max.patch: “back in the day the locals in that area hated the trail. fish hooks were strung across the trail at face level. a shelter was burned. there was an attempted rape. hikers were warned to be vigilant when hiking north of 19e and to get thru the area as fast as possible. given that context, there are lot of things worse than possibly getting scammed out of a great breakfast. edit to add: the only thing negative mentioned in my 5 year old companion is that the parking area on 1…

    Quote from Traffic Jam: “Quote from CoachLou: “The adaptive cruise control is excellent when you have heavy highway traffic, it keeps you at the distance from the vehicle you want while keeping you at what ever speed the traffic goes ” I don’t use that feature in heavy traffic.
