Yeah, I would not have bothered posting about that again unless I found another misspelled sign in PA.

Great Lakes and Ohio Valley / Re: I-69 Ohio River Bridge
Last post by Henry - Today at 10:31:01 PM
Now that I-69 in the Indianapolis area is getting very close to being completed, all the focus should soon shift to the ORX. Aside from the approaches leading to the bridge, are there any updates as to when it'll be built, and what the final design will be? (I'm thinking a tied-arch span would be great for this location, as cable-stayed would be overkill.)

The amount in cash I spend a year is under $500.

I get $200 at a time because I hate driving 4 miles to the bank and then waiting in line at the ATM. That lasts me a month normally.

For everything else I use a card that I pay off in full every month. The main thing I hate is balancing a checkbook. I no longer have any checks to write other than maybe a youth fundraiser every once in a while.

Quote from: 1995hoo on Today at 03:26:35 PMI don't agree with that because it's quite easy just to go to an automatic checkout at the grocery store or wherever, buy something small, and pay with a $100.
Assuming you can.  Around where I am, a lot of those lanes don't accept cash payment anymore.

The only store I go to that doesn't accept cash at the auto checkout is Wegmans. At this time of year I use Discover there anyway to get the 5% cashback bonus.

Quote from: Flint1979 on Today at 08:16:12 AMEven if someone from Michigan does travel on a toll road outside of Michigan it's not like it's often enough for someone to think oh man I should have an EZPass.
So how often is often enough to warrant getting an E-ZPass?
