As a Texan, driving is just a way of life, we don’t know better. Went up to Dallas for the weekend and it was fucking 4.5 hours to and from. That being said that’s probably the absolute max I’d willingly drive round trip. I usually just fly but it was last minute.

4.5 each way, it better be a 3 day weekend.

4 hours is my max to drive for a weekend trip. More than 4 and there better be lots of other shit going on along the way.

I've gotten used to long drives living in Texas; Marfa is 9 and Colorado is about the same distance. Best I can do without getting antsy is like 6 hours, but I prefer to keep it under 4 hours.

AZ is 6 hours from everything so you gotta bump that up to at least 6, actually Vegas is only about 4+ now since they built the bridge over the dam

I'm not gonna drive to anywhere I can fly to. And if it's over 2.5 hours I'm gonna try my damnedest to get out of it.

Totally - it's like, 7 or 8 hours to the best parts of this state alone, and Denver's not all that far from the middle. I'm not making that drive every day, but there are an awful lot of places out here where you're either driving or walking.

DIA, alone, is like an hour out of town for most people, so by the time you've dealt with getting there and security and all, you'd have driven most of the way to anything, anyway.

Edit: that said, who goes to Marfa?

4 hours is my limit. That can get me everywhere I need to go in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan. Anything more is a flight or I'm probably not going.

I like taking a train to a destination, but I'm flying back. Train rides home are booty

But like... why? It doesn't seem like there's anything there but snakes, scorpions and big spiders. And people who don't understand refraction.

it's a good spot to relax, it's quiet, and there are a lot of places to get good food.

also it's on the way to/from Big Bend

99% of people that go to Marfa only go to take a picture at the stupid Prada store.

Trains are underrated because they don't really save you any time. But it's a lot of fun once in a while

I only know Marfa as the place Dale Gribble goes when he thinks his son's real father is an alien.

Fair enough! I only know as much about it as I could tell from street view, so hardly an informed opinion.

hi, i need help about legal fees and protocol.

i signed a lease for a rental home but had to back out of it a few days later. the lease did not specify an early termination fee, but the homeowner wanted 3 months rent. i obliged and paid timely.

the real estate agent i used reached out to me 2 months later and referenced a lawyer for me to collect 2/3 of the fee i had paid. apparently, a tenant moved in a month after i broke the lease, and therefore collecting 3 months of rent from me was "unjust enrichment". i talked on the phone with him and he said he would draft a demand letter but we never discussed legal fees.

he's emailed me a draft of the letter (with a typo in it).

when in this process is it appropriate to discuss legal fees?

since the letter is drafted already, is it too late to back out of this if there are legal fees?

I would refuse to allow a lawyer to do anything for me until I fully understood the fee structure and exactly when I’d start getting charged.
