    Too much time off

    No money, and no ability to make it with Uber... schools out until end of April. at least. What to do? Go visit some cool, yet free stuff. 50 points if you recognize this place I took the family yesterday.

    Airport rematch sabotaged by Lyft

    Airport drop-off, driving away and got a rematch on Lyft. Do the 2 mile loop to get to the arrivals spot. As I'm pulling in, Lyft switches the ride. Instead if a code, now I have a name. Uh oh, is that a shared ride? I refuse to do shared rides on general principal, especially from the airport...

    Opportunity on Lyft!

    Got this on the Lyft app this morning. Let me get this straight, Lyft... You are telling me about an 'opportunity' to deadhead hours to Bend, drive people to and from a drinking event for minimum pay, then deadhead home again? How, exactly, will I "earn big"??? PASS!!!

    $ per mile

    Did pretty well last night, as measured by $/mile. Normally on a long Fri or Sat I'm making somewhere between $1.25 and $1.50 per mile. Yesterday it was about $2.33. Some good cash tips and a cash ride helped, mostly due to the parade and streets blocked off.
