St. Thomas, NV, is a ghost town located 65 miles northeast of Las Vegas, within the boundaries of Lake Mead National Recreation area (just past Valley of Fire, where VoF Highway meets Northshore). It was founded in 1865 and existed for more than 70 years until it was flooded by Lake Mead following construction of the Hoover Dam. St. Thomas sat underwater for more than six decades until drought exposed the ruins in 2002.
I took this photo in late 2018 looking east toward the Gentry Store and, behind it, the town's post office.
For those interested, I wrote a novel set in the town, Lords of St. Thomas (Amazon, Goodreads), that is based loosely on the final resident to leave the town in 1938. There is also a history book written on the town, St. Thomas: A History Uncovered, which I recommend!
Don't rent a modem from them. Buy your own. You're literally giving them free money for no reason if you do that.
2 exams, $300 each. Plus any study materials you may need. I would recommend Chris Bryant on udemy.com. Usually you can get the course for like 15 bucks or cheaper if you're a new signup. His course is all you need if you got a good brain on you.
If that's too much you could just take the first exam. That gives you a CCENT. Its a beginner cert. You could roll the dice and put your resume out with just that and see what bites while you save up for the second exam.
You can get to Dana Point or Long Beach in about the same time. Long Beach does have some beach front, but it's protected by the harbor, so not so wavy or busy for that matter. I always liked it for walking around the harbor they have a bunch of food places. You can also drive around the corner and be in Rancho Palo Verde. Harder to get to a beach though.
Hungtington is probably what you are looking for. Great beach, lot's of shops. As for hotels, check hotels.com and then hotelstonight. com. Obviously on a beach it will be pricey, but slightly inland it's usually much less.
Dana point marina inn is usually cheap, state park nearby.
Check out this GroupOn, I was gonna join because the price is great. Sadly none of the classes match up with my current schedule.
Three Months of Unlimited MMA Classes at Xtreme Couture MMA (Up to 73% Off). Three Options Available.
Came here to ask the same thing. I didn't get mine.
My account was also hacked and someone charged $255 to a Bit Coin debit card company over seas. I got a letter yesterday saying they were sending me a new card because some of the accounts had been compromised. I got the text that my weekly deposit was made and my account total was way less than I expected. I checked the site and 10 separate charges and international transaction fees for Uphold.com were made. I called B of A and they shut off my card and today I filed a fraud claim. I should get the money back in my account in 10 days or so but it could also take up to 90. I also asked about the extra $600 and BofA didn't have any answers. SMFH.
I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BNGBBTF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Whatever you choose, the important part is to ensure it uses a capacitor and not a battery, since that's the piece that's most likely to fail in the summer heat.
I don't know of any retro soda fountains, so you'll probably have to settle for homemade.
More recipes say whole milk. Use half and half or heavy cream because you're watering it down back into milk.
Fox's U-bet syrup might be available at niche stores. I got it at a now-closed store. Or it's 8 bucks on Amazon, and if you want a full gallon that's only $28.
Actually that 2 pack for $11 is a good deal. That shit lasts forever.
Here's a link with directions to the trailhead. It is definitely a difficult hike. So plan a few (maybe 3 hours) depending on your hiking experience etc. take lots of water and sunscreen.
Also I'd probably recommend taking some food and having a picnic/break up at the summit and enjoy the views and prepare for the descent lol.
Frenchman Mountain Trail
Check out this trail on AllTrails.

Find a mount at monoprice.com, go to Home Depot and get some GRK structural screws (not lag bolts, those are what your father used), attach mount to studs with structural screws and impact driver. Twenty minute job, tops, if you have the right tools.
Running an extension cord through the wall is against code, not to mention ghetto, so get a kit that relocates your electrical outlet to behind your TV, like this:
Do you have an iPhone? Because if you are just interested in recording when a cop pulls you over (or something else happens) then this may be of interest
Combine that with a neat magnetic mount on your dash and you're good to go!
There is a hackerspace in town called the Synshop.
All synshop global communication happens through a google group.
Join it, introduce yourself, and let them know you are looking for work. There is almost always looking for someone.
Nextdoor also has a market you can post items on. The gimmick of the site is that it groups everything into areas, so you should only be advertising to vegas locals. No idea how much traffic they get though, it's lesser-known.
Hyperloop may still be hiring for engineers. Indeed usually has a pretty good list of available spots. There are a few engineering firms in town she might be able to check JBA and MSA come to mind. I'm sure there are more. Bigelow aerospace is also in town and Faraday Futures if the are still filling positions.
Good luck to her in her searches.
I'd really avoid the entire Red Rock area right now, Calico Basin Rd is closed, Red Rock is closed but I'm sure all nearby trails are pretty slammed which is going to keep adding to the problems. There are MANY other areas and trails to explore all around Vegas, the further you can get from Red Rock, the better IMO.
You need an RO system for your humidifier, not a softner. About 150 from Amazon, company I bought from had instructions and would help over the phone, although I didn't want to mess with it so had it installed. Carpet creates static, same thing happens up north in the winter.
I always say the most important part of where to live is climate. If you don't like it, you need to sell out your business and just move on. If it's worth something, cash it out. If you can't, it's not worth anything and why devote more time to it. Life is short.
I'm horrible at making friends. Barely made any in college or where I worked over the years. Just awkward as an adult. Or just for me. True in two other states, not just here.
Meetup.com does not require facebook, I think. Hiking groups on there, and possibly more.
You could also run old games off a Raspberry pi running RetroPie. This is what I did for my husband for Xmas instead of wasting money on a mini NES.
OfferUp - $5 for 2 cans, pickup in Henderson; eBay - $13 for three cans including shipping (Vegas seller contact to see if pickup is option) - Might be the same seller for both above; ~~amazon - $20 for 12 cans, shipping $30~~
Honestly, the weather is about 75% of the reason why I'm moving.. I've seen enough dismal winter days to just never want to see them again. I know it dips into the 30's in Vegas, and I think it was just there last week... but still not like weather here.
I'm in the Northeast part of PA, just outside of Scranton (yep.. home of Dunder Mifflin!). 30 degrees right now.. and here's the 10-day forecast: https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/USPA1459:1:US
Can you say dismal??? :)
Good friend of mine moved to Seattle a few years ago, and out of curiosity looked up average days of rainfall there vs. here since it's so well known in Seattle. I think Seattle only gets like 4-5 days more rainfall on average, which feels about right... since it's overcast and dismal here a good portion of the year.
Select the carrier and zoom in.
It's crowd sourced data from an app people have elected to put on their phone, measuring signal strength and type. It's not what the carrier claims. If it shows signal, then there's signal. If it shows no signal, then it could be either no signal or it could be that no user with that particular carrier has gone to that area.
I am not in the area, but I've only had sporadic issues while being in the area. Here's a crowd sourced map of the coverage. Not all dead zones shown are actual dead zones. They may just be areas that the crowd sourcing has not filled in yet.
I upgraded in January:
Router (I got mine from Best Buy)
Modem I was going to order from Amazon, but delivery was going to take a week, so I ordered it from Amazon's Prime Now and got in within 2 hours. $199.16
Service: Cox High Speed Internet GigaBlast $99.99 per month
Seconding the dinner date at home idea. The effort that goes into cooking and making it special at home is waaay more romantic than a night out during a pandemic. Splurge some money on flowers, candles, pretty placemats and napkins etc and she’ll be swooning!
Plus fill in one of these for brownie points.
Amazon actually has a decent selection.
1080P Wireless Security Camera... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077HX91ZN?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
They’re $400 on Amazon, which was actually a little much for us but we had 20% cashback on Amazon at the time so we took advantage. Comes with 8 cameras that are pre-paired, you just plug them in, mount them, and you’re good. Also has 3TB of hard drive so you don’t need to pay to store what they pick up.
Not sure about Walmart. I bought mine on Amazon. Link
If all you care about is price, you might want to check Groupon to see if there are any decent deals. If you're looking for full synthetic, this one seems decent:
If you're really worried about it a product like this would help send the message not to enter your yard. And if they do, well, it's a lot harder to get out so they would still be there when the cops arrived.
Non-native Spanish speaker. I took Spanish in high school and again in college. I wouldn't consider myself bilingual, but good enough to flirt in Spanish and understand gist of speakers. For me speaking is easier than listening.
Community college classes are probably going to be too slow of pace being dragged out over the course of a semester for one class. It sounds like you're self motivated, so moving at the pace of the class might actually be a limitation on your ability to develop proficiency.
If you're like me understanding the English relationship to Spanish words/phrases is how I learned best. Basically, you learn Spanish through a filter of English first, to start. I also liked being able to think conceptually about present, preterite, future, subjunctive, indicative, present progressive, etc. as technical topics.
A lot of Spanish speakers who in the context of language exchange/tutors can't explain WHY the subjunctive is used in phrases expressing doubt, just that it does, for example. They also can't teach the method to identify patterns of irregular verbs based on preservation of sounds. There are a lot of rules that divert significantly from English that it helps to know the high level concepts before getting to specifics.
You might try something more along the lines of a textbook vs online material which generally emphasizes memorization of phrases and words, vs the framework for how to derive proper phrases from concepts.
I spent this year putting in a sprinkler system, posts, and plants. I borrowed a coworkers demolition hammer and it really helped to soften up the soil to dig out. Turned a multihour task into about an hour. I also soaked some of the areas with water when the post holes got too deep to dig out with the shovel.
Just had some big trees installed and they used something similar and some breaker bars.
One thing that may help some is a "white noise machine". Run it one the High setting.
Also IOS 15 devices have a built in white noise generator.
I was looking at this on Amazon at this, not sure of the size though Amazon
Mines also go up through the wall to the 2nd floor and exit the water the the washing machine drain.
I use this system here
Had it for 1.5 years now and no problems.
I test my water hardness using test kit and I am getting about a reading of 5 PPM. Without the softerner, it was 250 PPM
I just came back from Iloilo.
I also suggest you learn to point with your lips...you will fit right in.
I run a few laptops and get wildly different results for wifi speeds when they are sitting right next to each other on my desk. The newer Dell actually showing worse performance, wifi is definitely not my first choice, but no wired access staying in hotels in Belize. I ordered this, maybe it will help:
If you don’t want to get crazy with wiring, I’d recommend at least a dash cam that has both a front and back camera in the single unit. I have the Rexing V3. I got mine on sale from Best Buy as an open box deal. Geek Squad warranty and installation still had it cost less than it did new.
Vantrue has the N2 Pro. The N4 Pro is currently an Amazon Prime lightning deal for the next nine hours and also includes a rear camera.
> What sort of pool has an auto fill, but isnt hard plumbed?
Some sort of aftermarket one like https://smile.amazon.com/Fill-Matic-2000-swimming-leveler/dp/B07B2NQG2D/ ? Had never heard of such a thing before this thread...
It's not much better but Amazon has a 24 pack of 20oz bottles for 41$
The zero water meter comes included when you buy a Zero Water pitcher and filter. They tell you to measure the output water and replace the filter when it hits 6 ppm.
But any ol' means of measuring TDS should do the trick. But what I see on Amazon, these things are about $12-$15. And you can get a Zero pitcher+filter+meter for $27 right now on sale on Amazon and that seems like a better deal to me. https://www.amazon.com/ZeroWater-ZP-006-4-Pitcher-Water-Quality/dp/B009DAU1NE?ref\_=ast\_sto\_dp&th=1
Counter top RO to the rescue. Take the aerator off your kitchen sink, screw this in. Turn the water on slowly and flip the valve over to run the water through the RO and filtered watered pops out the long tube.
If you want to get fancy and not lose the space a few other solutions are to build a deck over the top of the pool, or set it up as a below grade greenhouse.
We got one very similar to [this](www.amazon.com/dp/B082DN8L6T/ref=cm_sw_r_em_api_i_FJRZADYZXQ8Y9ZRXSVPB?_encoding=UTF8&amp;psc=1) . Put it on roof where dish used to be. Used the same wiring and get picture perfect images in three rooms. Over by Rhodes Ranch. Same brand, our model
Is sold out.

youtube is a good source. I will say that you live close to the towers. I'm about 8 miles north of you. I bought something like the link about three years ago ,and get every channel available OTA. I attached it near a pipe on the pool pump. It was sitting on the concrete pointing at the towers for a few months and still got excellent reception
If you are going to put it on the roof ,mounting it to field 70mph winds you will want a 150.-200 dollar option
Another idea: buy an inflatable jacuzzi. Requires a bit of maintenance but is just the right size for one person to chill in the summer heat. Much cheaper than buying a real hot tub or pool, and it’s way lower risk. I bought one of these last year and I’m very happy with it. It blows air to simulate a hot tub and has a pump!
This could also be a good way to see if you’ll actually use a pool.

The set comes with super sticky double sided tape, which worked well. I also used some foil tape to reinforce the edges.
NBC is available for free over the air..
Most likely you’re in an area that has weak signal for NBC. You’ll have to get an outdoor antenna that you can attach on your roof. Something like this.
Get a VPN, I use NordVPN, get ESPN+. Now you can stream on your phone or on a computer and hook it up to the TV.
Personally I’ve had trouble hooking up my phone wirelessly to my tv with a VPN.
This way you just set the VPN to another location and the blackout is lifted.

FYI, you only need DOCSIS 3.1 for the 500/1000 plan. You can get away with a DOCSIS 3.0 router for any plan lower.
Whatever you do, do not use the router Cox wants to give you. I really think that is a major reason why people have so many headaches with Cox. Just a guess, could be wrong.
I went to 305 kustomz- they did a good job on my car. They have a Groupon right now.
I called and they said that they prefer you actually don't purchase the groupon, and instead will match the groupon price if you call and mention it.
We also have Allegiant Stadium, that doesn't mean that their service at LAS is going to be any better than at any other airport.
T-Mobile and Sprint are the same network. Verizon usually has the better coverage, but costs more.
It could also be your particular phone. Search the model and connection issues, see if anything pops up.
It definitely did for me, if you can get the fiber gigabit. Cox had freezes and outages more than once a week, never got the advertised speeds, and that was before the lockdown.
I'm paying Centurylink for 940/940. I just did a speed test, and got 945/975! I'm very happy with it. I'd have switched even if it were the same speed as Cox just because it's so much more reliable.
That's mostly not the fault of Cox, I think. It's just the path between you and whatever you're downloading from is limited. As well, I'm pretty sure my router isn't up to full gigabit (purchased myself, not from Cox).
With my normal home network (modem<->router<->switch<->WiredDevices) I can get 750Mbps from Cox downloading from major sites (Steam, Microsoft, others). Running speedtest this instant to LV Switch (not Cox) it's 783Mbps down, 37Mbps up. https://www.speedtest.net/result/9337238855
If I pull out my router and just wire directly from PC to modem (also purchased, not from Cox), I've seen it hit 900Mbps. But I have a lot of devices connected so that's not a viable option and I'm perfectly happy with 750Mbps vs 900Mbps. (Even going PC to PC over my own gigabit wired network, not involving Cox at all, I don't get gigabit speeds...there's overhead and a bit over 900Mbps is the best I can do.)
But trying to use WiFi? LOL. If you don't have wires and depend on WiFi, yeah, unless you need 30Mbps up vs the default 10Mbps, you probably won't get much benefit from going from their 300Mbps service to gigabit. WiFi just isn't all they advertise.
Can try 'Nextdoor' as well, I've seen people post different projects and sometimes people respond. If there's a facebook bike group, somebody may be sympathetic to your situation and know how to put it together.
Idk anything about bikes, maybe someone else here will.
There you go! You're making friends!
Definitely checkout Meetup.com. I have seen local D&D groups looking fo new members there. You might also ask at a place like Maximum Comics, as its a pretty popular comic book shop in town. They may have some events.
I hope this is not the dog I saw on Nextdoor here (From my neighborhood: https://nextdoor.com/p/YzLtGdyqWcwm?utm_content=a&utm_source=share&extras=NDgwNjE3MDk%3D)
Which means they abandoned the dog instead of finding a rescue for it.
Please if you have the dog, becareful as the person on NextDoor said the dog dislikes children.
The people who commented on their post gave them a list of rescues to reach out to. If you want, I'll go through and copy and paste them over here for you to contact them.
Do not take the dog to the Animal Foundation because it does exhibit aggression towards sma children, they will most likely euthanize him. Please find a rescue who can work to helping him. (I'm assuming it's a male dog)

You should get one of these. Come in handy and are pretty cheap really. As long as you remember to charge it every once in awhile you'll never have to ask for a jump. I have this one and it's worked everytime I've need it but I have a 2.0L so I don't know if it actually has the umph it says it does

I went with a countertop RO. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IB14XDU?ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details&th=1
Unscrew the kitchen sink aerator/flowlimiter and screw the hose in. Done. Takes about 15 or 20 minutes to do a gallon. Not automated, not pretty, but it's fairly cheap and downright trivial to install if you are willing to give up a few inches at the back of your kitchen counter by the sink. When it comes time to move out, unscrew it and put the aerator back.

If you are absolutely desperate you could buy and return at any store that has a decent return policy
I'd recommend power strips (or unplugging) for any devices you don't frequently use. Buy a power meter online (~$30, plug the device into the meter, the meter into the wall) to determine actual usage. I found a few devices that were using much more energy than they should have. Only run the dryer for as long as you have to. Enable sleep for any computers that are on 24x7. Fully load the dishwasher. Be wary of space heaters. Programmable thermostat.
Here's a handy calculator that I use (and you can get the price per KWH from your NV Energy bill):
I bought this one on amazon earlier this year. I have it plugged into a cigarette lighter in the front of my car and the wire tucked into the trim of the car around the front windshield with the rear camera tucked into the roof trim going into the trunk. I have the rear camera mounted above the license plate and to engage the rear back up camera mode I had to remove a small piece of rubber/plastic to expose the wire for one of the rear brake lights, and then wrapped the rear camera wire around the exposed brake wire with electrical tape as a finish. the rear camera wire to this for the connection. If your vehicle already has a rear back up camera then this is not necessary, and you can just cut the extra wire off or hide it. The front camera is mounted to the front window to the side of the rearview mirror to get a wide angle of the front. I haven't had any issues from camera usage. You will need to purchase a sd card to insert for the memory. It is programmed to auto record over old recordings once the sd card is full. So if you have something you want to grab off of the card, I would recommend doing so before going back on the road depending on how large of a sd card that you have. I picked up a 30 GB from best buy for $15. This camera gets the job done. I have not had to use it for any claims yet, but I am ready when the right idiot hits me again.

We are entering the "cloudiest" part of the year, but even the cloudiest day of the year has a 61% chance of being sunny. You moved to the right place if you want clear weather - these cloudy days we've had recently are a statistical anomaly and we'll be back to clear weather soon.

Select a carrier and zoom in on Vegas.

CenturyLink gigabit fiber - $123.28. That includes $13.98 in extra fees, and $4.35 in taxes. $11 of that is for the crappy router they give you plus the box that connects the fiber optic line from outside to the house. I could probably save a few bucks if i returned the router since I have a better one already.
Netflix recommends 25 Mbps for 4k streaming, so if you're using multiple devices at the same time, I'd double that plus a little extra because you won't always get your max speed. I haven't had Cox for a couple years, but 100Mbps should be like $60/month. Add $10 per month for equipment rental on top of the advertised price unless you buy your own (should pay for itself within a year depending on what you get). Then another $10 if you want to pay month to month instead of signing a 1-year contract. Taxes should be similar to what I posted above for CL.
Run a speed test. If your neighbor has gigabit and a beefy router, you may get better speeds for $60 than you can from an equally priced Cox or CL plan on your own.
Check out Teamtreehouse.com if you can't find a good brick and mortar alternative. I took community college classes in Portland and did really like them but also used a company sponsored treehouse account. Learned quite a bit from Treehouse, enough to get me out of customer support and into a SQL developer gig here in Vegas. I thought it was a good way to get the baseline skill set to let you start doing your own projects.

You can't leave anything with even the slightest bit of value visible inside your car. Hell, I ever put my prescription sunglasses in their case and store them in my console when I get out of my car. The dirtbags in this town will try to steal anything that isn't nailed down. If you have a SUV like that, then get some kind of cover for the cargo area that can be pulled out to hide anything in the back. I got one of these for my Jeep:
Not OP but it looks like a coat rack made for cars. Similar to this car coat hanger or this car seat coat rack. It’s super helpful to keep jackets wrinkle free if your wear a lot of suits or uniforms or even managing winter/rain gear. It worked really well when I had to wear dress blues or keep my gortex off the seats when it snowed but I’ve also seen them used to hold carry bags for those with portable oxygen or feeding tubes.
For Cox, you will need a 3.1 for the 500 mbps and 1 gigabit plans.
Have had little to no problems with Cox going this route. Using an Eero mesh router.
Reverse osmosis is the first thing I do on move in. For cooking, making tea, to drink and fill the humidifier and rinsing dishes. Install under sink or a countertop version. Example https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EEDJSES/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_MY4TB8DN60002SGX2K6X. Hope you find relief
Not sure if I'm too late or anything, but we had gotten some humidifiers that left the white film everywhere no matter what we did.
We got this humidifier (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O0WOO74/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_apip_IqRi5uLFIfXI5) and there's no film anywhere, and we just use the faucet water. It's definitely helps with our dry noses and the static in our apartment.
Not sure if this would meet the requirement for you or not. But it’s a good deal if it does.

Let me offer some suggestions.
If you get a dash camera, get one that has a capacitor rather than an internal lithium ion battery. The reason being, a capacitor has a much higher heat tolerance and will survive summers here, whereas lihium ion will fail due to heat exposure.
Get a dash camera that has dual cameras, both looking forward and backwards. I wouldn't mess with a rear facing camera on your license plate. That requires tricky wiring. Just having a view as you would from your rear view mirror perspective is sufficient.
Get a dash camera that has night vision capability. Not all do and when it gets dark you'll be out of luck on capturing anything to video.
You don't need to go somewhere to have a dash camera installed. Just order one from Amazon and use a suction cup mount to hold it in place.
The one that I have is the Cooau 1080P FHD Built-in GPS Wi-Fi Dash Cam, Front and Inside Car Camera Recorder with Infrared Night Vision, Sony Sensor, Supercapacitor, 4 IR LEDs，G-Sensor, Parking Mode, Loop Recording (D30).
I have been very happy with it. The only thing you need to also get is a Samsung EVO microsd card to install in it. I use a 128 gb size.
This stuff is working really well for me and the only thing that doesn't feel super oily. Got it off Amazon, but you could probably find cheaper elsewhere.

Get a reverse osmosis system, I've purchased two of these and they've been working great for 2 years.
It takes nearly all the minerals out of your water making it taste like nothing.
I also have a water softener, but that's mainly helps for the water heater, bathing, and washing machine. Softened water still doesn't taste great.
this is the 1 i got
its very nice but you can get one just as good for half, but with a tank
100% get a reverse osmosis system. I’ve had this one for 4 years and love it… https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N2941T2/.
My very rich friend who’s always drank bottled water because of how much they hated other waters, loved our water so much they bought one. They just moved into their $3 million home and bought another one.
Plus, they’re in Phoenix, AZ so shipping comes fast. They also have ridiculously good customer service. You can call or email and they respond right away and give away replacements without question.
You can also buy directly from them… https://www.theperfectwater.com
I have some cheap generic ELM327 OBDII scanner from Amazon and it can read the the voltage of each battery module on my Prius with EngineLink on my iPhone. But Dr Prius wouldn't work with it, so I bought one of the recommended models, a Veepeak.
if you're talking dryer vent, amazon (or others) sell a brush that attaches to your drill that you can push up there. I've had my house for 14 years, and used this thing last week - brush came back pretty clean. It was easy to move the dryer, unhook the dryer hose, and use this - https://www.amazon.com/Smart-House-Inc-Innovative-Attachment/dp/B081TNML6D
I actually wasn’t referring to the powder, but rather the liquid beverage in a can. I may just settle for Amazon though lol.
The CarPlay OS runs entirely off the iPhone and uses your car’s built-in display to act as its “second display.” Multiple variables (iPhone variant, iOS version, car’s hardware/software, USB cable, etc) will contribute to your CarPlay’s success or lack of success. Your cell service wouldn’t disable the use of CarPlay. However, if your iPhone is sitting somewhere in the car where the sun is beating down on it… the iPhone could run hot thus disabling CarPlay and other functionality of the device.
I have a 2020 Nissan Kicks SR, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and Anker Powerline+ lightning cable; my CarPlay experience is hit or miss depending on the time of day. My car’s software is up to date as well as my iPhone (iOS 14.7.1). CarPlay just isn’t great. It works well when it wants to. Other times, not so much.
Everyone in the comments is quick to shit on CarPlay. Is CarPlay great? No. But Android Auto isn’t much better (and is an even worse experience depending on what phone you’re using it with).
I bought a yellow gallon container from Lowes or Home Depot that works against scorpions, spiders and mites and it's worked great for us. Use it indoor and outdoor.

Also I would purchase a blacklight or two.
I spray once every 3 months the exterior of my home. Additionally, we use a UV light around the house about every 3 months also to find, capture, and kill any scorps we find. None in the house last 5 years since we found a few.
I've been using the Rexing V1P (~$130) for about 3 years now, which has a front and rear camera, and it's still running fine in the Vegas heat. The only downside is the rear camera is VGA, which records at 480p, so it looks grainy. So I'd recommend getting the V1P "3rd Generation" (~$180) which has 1080p recordings for both the front and rear cameras.
But there's plenty of good options around. Check out the /r/Dashcam subreddit, lots of information on what to look for, how to set up, etc.
I recently purchased the Rexing V3 Plus when it was on sale from Best Buy a few weeks ago ($149.99 for Open Box - Excellent; added the 3-year Geek Squad warranty alongside installation).
I had to purchase the Rexing Smart Hardwire Kit from Amazon as Best Buy had a 1-2 week back order.
The big reason I was looking at Rexing cameras were due to them having capacitors over batteries due to the Vegas heat.
It’s a great setup and video recording is great regardless if you choose 1080p or 4K.
Man, busy locking my Super73 at the gym i put a caliper lock, foldy lock through the rear wheel to the frame, cable through the front to the frame, and u lock to a post/bike hitch. At home i stuff it anywhere it fits to keep it out of sight at the very least.
I imagine just a caliper lock like mine would have stopped these goons.
But you are certainly stupid.
Trump, eighth best President behind George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, Woodrow Wilson, Harry S Truman and Ronald Reagan
Probably why hundreds of thousands of smart people went to his rallies, compared to dozens attending Biden's speeches in comparison.
81 million? HELL NO.
Maybe you didn't hear: Trump, the first US president since 1980 not to start a war in his first term.
Get an RO system and install it. This fixes all your problems and isn't wasteful like buying 5gal/water bottles.
A simple filter, regardless of how many layers is not going to fix the taste of Vegas water
It's a complete honor system. You take what shots you feel and play as honorably as you can. Those who cheat often and blatantly quickly earn poor reputations. Our tournaments do have referees though since it is a more competitive atmosphere.
If you have Amazon Prime, you can watch episode 2 of Beyond Geek for free. It's a mini-documentary on Battle for the Ring
15 years here and I still can’t even swallow a glass of tap water. Installed an RO system under my sink with a remineralization stage. The end result is silky soft, slightly alkaline water that is better than bottled waters. Amazon Link
It also has a 1:1 waste ratio which is the highest efficiency on the market, making it eco friendly as well. I have very little plumbing skills and it was not difficult to install at all.
I just did my headlight myself using a kit I got off Amazon. Worked amazing. Took me 1 hour.
Here is the kit if you are interested.

Get a DTV antenna like this. This will get you local channels in our area. I've found that channel 3 and channel 13 are either or, like, If i want channel 3 i have to orient it a certain way, and i have to orient it another way for channel 13. But besides those two, I get everything else perfectly. I live in the aliante area of NLV.
As for ditching Cox, figure out what shows or channels you watch the most and then research what services offer them. For me, we wrote it all out and found that Hulu had all the shows we watch and then we got CBS access through our Amazon Prime channels and that covered everything for us. Also, getting CBS access through amazon prime gets you the live CBS channel for your local area as well.
So, I got the Veckle Mini 0906 for my car back when I was an Uber driver. It's been in my car for over two years, and both front and rear cameras seem to be holding up well. Thankfully I haven't had to use it's video yet, but I check it out regularly to make sure it's still doing good. It does overheat setting in the car especially if the sun shades are in. Sun shades trap all that heat against the glass which just cooks it. So I actually take it down out of the windshield if I'm going to leave it parked out in the sun in the summer for more than an hour. Defeats the purpose of the parking mode it has, I know. But if you don't it will overheat, and it won't come on until it cools off to a certain point. Which some days is a solid 15min of full max AC. But, still, that's peak summer heat like right now. It's fine so long as it doesn't break 110 outside.
*EDIT* I meant 110 not 100 degrees outside.
