Metatalktail Hour: Best Road Stories

It's been a travelly week for some people. I want to hear about all the best things you've seen this week, or alternately, your best fun road stories -- the time you got lost, the time you ran out of gas, favorite road trip games, other road travel stories, or heck, urban planning and road construction.

Metatalktail Hour: Return

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week's conversation starter is from Wordshore, and he wants to know, "Where have you been that you want to return to? And why? Maybe a holiday place, a difficult-to-reach island, the city where you found love, a childhood playground, that diner you stopped at one time, a beach, or that quiet forest with only the sounds of trees and animals. Or, perhaps somewhere closer to home (or maybe even your home itself)." [more inside]

MeFites residing with other MeFites: an airbnb profile option?

Time travel / Science Fiction writers (can't find thread)

Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask, I tried MetaChat, too, but there was a thread I now can't find, it was about science fiction writers and the problem with writing from a place of omniscience when writing this time of science fiction. Anyone know what I'm talking about. I wanted to read it during lunch, can't find it!

Travel wiki!

Hey! Have you taken a look at the MeFi Wiki travel guides lately? As lots of MeFites of the Northern Hemispheric persuasion are gearing up for summer vacations, it would be great to have folks contributing again to the travel wiki by updating with travel AskMe threads. (Previously).

Josephine and Frederick's grand feedback

A recent post about a Belgian couple's journey (by Toyota Landcruiser) through the Congo has garnered both praise and criticism; now the author of the piece, Frederick, has shown up in thread to discuss his experiences and answer questions.

"Ample open TSA threads"

Can we have a separate subsection of MetaFilter just about airline travel, security, the TSA, backscatter machines, agressive pat-downs, ball cupping, and other related topics? It could be an area for posts about these issues, questions, projects, jobs, and music. I feel this would be both a great place to productively funnel the surge of ongoing interest and a way to help keep the rest of the site from being inundated. Potential names for the subsite welcome and appreciated.

Three finger peace sign.

Help me find an old post about people in the late 60s I think that had an increased risk of cancer as a result of travelling through areas affected by US nuclear tests.

Travel Medical Tech Support Filter

have pros and cons ever been discussed for separating AskMe's into segregated categories for ( "what do you recommend I do during my three months in X / can anyone recommend a good shoe repairmen in X" ; "radioactive Y on my eyeball when I woke up-- should I see a doctor?" ; and "need help with Z computer-ish code-ism/softwareness" )?

travel laziness

This might be a better suggestion for the upcoming Travel site, but is it appropriate to suggest to people before they post looking for things to do in a new city, that they: A) Tell us as much about themselves as possible, B) Have perused all the previous threads relating to that city?

Pony: front page +fave links

Any chance we can get a +fave link on the front page for each item, especially on the green? (I'm thinking Digg-style, AJAX based would be very pretty, though potentially too Web 2.0 for the likes of some Mefites...)

AskMeFi should consider making a separate section for travel/location questions

AskMeFi should consider making a separate section for travel/location questions. Unless I'm going to be in London (Istanbul, Des Moines), I don't have an interest in the question or the answer.

Thanks for askme help tracking down family history in Vienna

I'm back from Vienna, where--thanks to the answers that came from this AskMe thread--I was able to visit the building where my mom lived as a little girl, as well as the location where my grandparents' grocery store likely once stood. I've posted some photos in the thread, for anybody who is interested. Thanks again to arco and his colleague at the USHMM.
