Conjure an image of what’s it is like to go on a cruise. Are you picturing buffet dinners? On-deck spinning classes? Retirees playing shuffleboard? Many cruises really are like that. But if you’re looking for a different sort of cruise scene consider traveling by cargo ship.
Cargo ship travel is the un-cruise. There’s nothing fabricated about it. Every day thousands of freighters ply the high seas. Some of them have extra state rooms and accept passengers to tag along for the ride. It is as “real” as travel gets.
Almost everywhere it is expensive to fuel your car. If you live in the United States and Canada, at least, there’s a website that will help you find the cheapest price. Type your address into GasBuddy.com and you’ll get a list of the cheapest gas in your ‘hood. Or, look at the handy overview map for a breakdown of what regions generally have the cheapest fuel.

As nearly every adult living in the United States knows, dealing with the legal obligations of having a car — insurance, registration, driver’s license requirements — can be a pain. In fairness to our brothers and sisters who work at a state Department of Motor Vehicles, the efficiently has improved in the last few years as many services have been made available on the internet. Still, some state DMV websites are confusing. And moving across states can force you to learn a whole new system.
To the rescue comes DMV.org, an unofficial guide to all the states’ DMVs. The information on every state is accessible through the same intuitive navigation — getting around this website is easy. Through the website you can also get free quotes on auto insurance, get a free credit report, and find a lawyer. Especially useful are their How To guides such as How To Buy Car Insurance, How to Get A Car Loan and even How To Check Tire Pressure.
