Psst. Hey you, writer. It's time to end the requirement for gas attendants. End that and I'll consider the gas tax next, which would even things out a bit.

What would the requirement for gas attendants have to do with a gas tax? That is a non sequitur. The price of gas is not any lower in neighboring states that do not have gas station attendants.

The gas tax has lost 60% of it's purchasing power due to inflation - and yet the demand on the gas tax has increased (more and heavier cars driving more miles on more roads).

Whether or not someone pumps your gas, we need to maintain our roads.

Wolf River Greenway - my thoughts

Out in east Memphis and northwest Germantown they have some greenway bike+ped paths along the Wolf River, called the Wolf River Greenway.  It is pretty nice, and I have ridden my bicycle along it's entirety.  It is still somewhat in two main sections, the Memphis section in the west and the Germantown section in the east.   The ultimate plans are to have them all linked together and connected to some other areas as well, although those plans seem like they might be a while to completion (if ever).


My thoughts on the Wolf River Greenway are mixed.

Travato

We had been looking at RVs for a long time, focusing mostly on class B versions.  Class B RVs are on van chassis and stay within the van footprint, as a result the Class B RVs are very manageable compared to their larger siblings.  Most Class B can be driven in cities, parked in normal spots, and genarraly fit into tighter situations than you would ever consider for a much larger Class A or Class C (when most people think of RVs they are usually envisioning Class A or C).
We decided on a 2017 Winnebago Travato.  We chose the 59g floorplan and waited for the 2017 1/2 models to come out with their few nice mid-year improvements.

Memphis corrugated recycling failure

All right, maybe not a "failure"  - more like a deficiency.  However sensationalist headlines draw in more readers, and since you may be my only one - I need all the help I can get.

Memphis seems to have OK recycling programs for a city in this region, although still not that great in general.  One thing that I found frustrating is the requirement to cut down corrugated.
