Our "new" 2016 Chevy Tahoe

In early 2004, we bought a 2001 Chevy Tahoe to use as our family truckster.  It served us well for 15 years, and had 277K miles on the ticker when the transmission died.  We had hoped to use it past 300K, but decided this was as good a time as any to upgrade to a newer vehicle.  We loved the Tahoe's combination of maneuverability, cargo space, and towing capacity, so we replaced our 2001 with a 2016 Tahoe of the same color (Victory Red).  Victory Red is a hard color to find, and we were forced into a rather quick purchase, so I didn't get to do as much up-front research as I would have liked before the purchase.  Here, I'd like to share a few things that I've learned about our 2016 that I wish I'd known before hand.Read more »

My Windows 7 laptop suddenly, out of the blue, started having network problems.  When trying to connect to any of our several WiFi networks, it gave the error "Identifying... No Internet Access."  Connecting to a wired ethernet connection worked just fine.  After hours of frustratingly chasing wild geese, I finally solved the problem.

Choosing a barn builder

Once I knew what kind of barn I wanted, I needed to find someone to build it for me.  While I'm quite handy, and technically capable of building a barn myself, I knew that doing so would cause me far more frustration and exhaustion than I wanted.  I'd much rather pay an expert to build it in a couple weeks.  Fortunately, in an agricultural state like Nebraska, there's no shortage of companies that build pole barns.
