RIDES, ROADS & MORE (continued): • Driving the long haul to a specific destination requires choosing a route. It’s easy now, but, following World War II, the U.S. government was faced with a problem: many Americans buying cars and not enough roads on which to drive them. The solution was the Federal Highway System. The major routes are denoted by one or two numbers, and spurs off of them are three-numbered routes. North-south routes bear odd numbers, and east-west routes bear even numbers. Route numbers become larger as one moves from east to west or north to south. • As more and more cars started to overwhelm the Federal Highway System, a need grew for a bigger route system. The government embarked on the Interstate Highway System in the 1950s. A second factor bearing on the design for this system was national defense. If the country was threatened by an invasion, a way was needed to quickly transport resources to the region under threat. The Interstate System provided for multi-lane highways with limited access and no traffic lights. The numbering system for these roads is the opposite of the Federal Highway System routes; the route numbers increase for the odd-numbered, north-south routes going from west to east. (For example, I-5 runs from California to Washington, and I-95 runs from Maine to Florida.) They increase for the even-numbered, east-west routes going 1.from What two to areas of Canada have roads that are south north.

tidbits@tidbitswyoming.com • Hawaii is known for its pineapple plantations. More than one-third of the world’s commercial supply is grown in the state. • The Big Island of Hawaii is the world leader for harvesting orchids and macadamia nuts. • Hawaii Highway 360, the “Road to Hana,” is one of the most famous highways in the world. Covering 52 miles (83.7 km), it runs along the eastern coastline of Maui from Kahului to the small town of Hana. If you want to see exquisite views of the ocean, lush rainforests and tumbling waterfalls, this is the road to follow. With 600 curves, including many hairpin turns, and more than 50 bridges, the highway takes two to four hours to drive and has been referred to as the “Divorce Highway.” Many husbands and wives have had major “discussions” while enjoying this drive! • If you are a diver and looking for a great spot to do some underwater exploring, check out the marine preserve in Hulope Bay on the Island of Lanai. It is considered one of the best diving spots in the world. • You are probably aware of the large ranches in the western United States, but did you know that the largest ranch in the country is on the island of Hawaii? Parker Ranch near Kamuela has 480,000 acres (194249 ha). • There are many spectacular things to see in the warm state of Hawaii. Here are three to put on your “must do” list: Haleakala Crater, on Maui, is the world’s largest dormant volcano; Waialeale Mountain, on the Garden isle of Kauai, averages 488 inches (1240 cm) of rain per year and is considered the wettest spot on earth; and Molokai has Hawaii’s longest waterfall, the world’s highest sea cliffs and the largest white sand beach in the state.

• Aloha! (This word means hello and goodbye in Hawaii.)

It was the last single released by the band before their breakup. Paul McCartney wrote the song from his home in Scotland. Possible inspiration for the song was B842, a 31-mile (50-km) winding road. RIDES, ROADS & MORE (continued): • The Natchez Trace Parkway became a part of the National Park Service in 1938 and is also an “All-American Road.” The 444-mile drive is an old route used by American Indians, settlers and many others who played significant roles in American history. The scenic drive is between Natchez, Mississippi, and Nashville, Tennessee. There are many markers along the route pointing out historical events or places. One is a monument at Grinder’s Stand in Tennessee where Meriwether Lewis, of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, died mysteriously on the Trace in 1809. Also, the Natchez Trace Parkway was named one of the country’s top ten road biking destinations by ESPN (Entertainment Sports Programming Network).

• Bicycling is becoming more popular in the United States, whether mountain biking or road biking. One organization, the Adventure Cycling Association (ACA), is dedicated to: “Inspiring people of all ages to travel by bicycle.” ACA publishes maps for a route system over 40,000 miles long, keeping cyclists in mind by noting available services along the way and often steering riders toward lowtraffic or scenic roads. Bicycle travel is good for the environment because it is pollution-free, healthy because of the exercise, and makes the journey (not just the destination) something to remember. Check Adventure Cycling’s website for great cycling information: www. adventurecycling.org • So, whether you’re going by bike, car, truck, motorcycle or recreational vehicle, or you’re buying a ticket and taking a trip by bus, train or airplane, long roads, short flights, mountains and flat lands are ready to be explored. Enjoy!

WARM UP IN HAWAII

When you think of pineapples, macadamia nuts and orchids, what state comes to mind? It would have to be Hawaii. The 50th state of the United States was added to the union 51 years ago on August 20, 1959. • The “Aloha State” is mostly warm and sunny year-round. The average daily temperature is highest in July at 82ºF (27.7ºC) and lowest in January at 72ºF (22.2ºC). The islands are the projecting tops of mountains with their bases reaching down to the ocean floor. As with mountains on the mainland, as one rises in elevation, the temperature decreases. The state’s lowest recorded temperature is 12ºF (-11.1ºC) on Mauna Kea, recorded on May 17, 1979. • Hawaii and Alaska share a surprising U.S. temperature record. Both states hold the record for the lowest recorded maximum temperature, 100ºF (37.8ºC). Temperatures rarely get extremely hot or cold in Hawaii. Mostly it feels very comfortable. • Hawaii consists of eight main islands and 124 smaller, mostly uninhabited islands, reefs and atolls.

on Holiday Debt

Overheard in a mall when a weary child asked his packageladen mother: "Mom, can we stop shopping yet?" Smart kid. Is your holiday shopping completed? Did you stick to your budget and use saved cash, or are you afraid to look at the stack of credit-card receipts you've accumulated? If you've reached the end of your budgeted money, yes ... you can stop shopping. Don't buy another thing, even if you see a super sale. If you used credit cards because you didn't save in advance, you'll need a plan of attack to pay off the balance. Your first step will be to

determine whether your credit-card purchases put your balance over 50 percent of your available credit. Going over that 50 percent amount can impact your credit score long term. If that has happened, do everything you can to immediately bring the balance below that 50 percent. Consider taking out a lower interest loan, perhaps at a credit union, to pay off the entire balance. If you're expecting a tax refund and haven't paid off the credit card by the time the check arrives, use it first to pay off the debt. If you've stayed under that 50 percent amount, break the balance into three payments and pay it off quickly. If you can't clear the balance in three payments, at least make more than the minimum payment. There's a place on your credit report that indicates whether you make more than the minimum payments, and that helps your credit score. If your credit card statement after the holidays offers you a month of no payment, send a payment anyway. The interest

meter never stops running, and the cost of your gifts will continue to rise. If you haven't started your shopping yet, reconsider how much you'll spend. Decide whether it's possible to go allcash this year, perhaps by not sending gifts to people outside your immediate family. Idea: Start a Christmas Club account at your bank or credit union for next year. Every month you'll deposit a set amount, and by the next shopping season all of your holiday money will be waiting for you. The interest paid will be minimal, but you'll have the satisfaction of having no credit-card debt after the holidays.

year-round. The average daily temperature is highest in July at (27.7ºC) 8,and lowest December 2 -82ºF December 2010 in January at 72ºF (22.2ºC). The islands are the projecting tops of mountains with their bases reaching down to the ocean floor. As with mountains on the mainland, as one rises in elevation, the temperature decreases. The state’s lowest recorded temperature is 12ºF (-11.1ºC) on Mauna Kea, recorded on May 17, 1979. • Hawaii and Alaska share a surprising U.S. temperature record. Both states hold the record for the lowest recorded maximum temperature, 100ºF (37.8ºC). Temperatures rarely get extremely hot or cold in Hawaii. Mostly it feels very comfortable. • Hawaii consists of eight main islands and 124 smaller, mostly uninhabited islands, reefs and atolls. Whether you are surfing, just walking on one of the many beaches or seeking out the historical and natural tourist attractions, it can all be done in warm-weather clothing and flip flops. The mild weather and casual atmosphere are very inviting to visitors this time of year when snow is flying and temperatures dropping many other places. • Hawaii is an archipelago, (cluster of islands) that spans a distance of 1,524 miles (2,451 km). It is the longest island chain and the most isolated population center on earth. WARM UP IN HAWAII (continued):

• Hawaii is known for its pineapple plantations. More than one-third of the world’s commercial supply is grown in the state. • The Big Island of Hawaii is the world leader for harvesting orchids and macadamia nuts. • Hawaii Highway 360, the “Road to Hana,” is one of the most famous highways in the world. Covering 52 miles (83.7 km), it runs along the eastern coastline of Maui from Kahului to the small town of Hana. If you want to see exquisite views of the ocean, lush rainforests and tumbling waterfalls, this is the road to follow. With 600 curves, including many hairpin turns, and more than 50 bridges, the highway takes two to four hours to drive and has been referred to as the “Divorce Highway.” Many husbands and wives have had major “discussions” while enjoying this drive! • If you are a diver and looking for a great spot to do some underwater exploring, check out the marine preserve in Hulope Bay on the Island of Lanai. It is considered one of the best diving spots in the world. • You are probably aware of the large ranches in the western United States, but did you know that the largest ranch in the country is on the island of Hawaii? Parker Ranch near Kamuela has 480,000 acres (194249 ha). • There are many spectacular things to see in the warm state of Hawaii. Here are three to put on your “must do” list: Haleakala Crater, on Maui, is the world’s largest dormant volcano; Waialeale Mountain, on the Garden isle of Kauai, averages 488 inches (1240 cm) of rain per year and is considered the wettest spot on earth; Shopping and Molokai has Hawaii’s longest One-Stop (307) 358-3255 waterfall, the world’s highest sea cliffs and the (For late wild game drop off, give us a call) white sandIt’s beachYour in theOwn state.
