According to the 2,000 year old man, there's scientific proof that when you die, the Angel of Death knocks on your apartment door to take you away; but, if you eat lots of garlic before going to bed, when the Angel of Death knocks on your door and you open it and say, "Who-o-o-o-se there?", the Angel of Death will run away, leaving you alone.

Supposedly, garlic keeps vampires away, as well.

Thanks Timberwolf, I am looking to rent something for about 2 weeks - for use on the drive. Looks like there are some long stretches between towns on both of the routes I am considering. I have an ATT phone and the service in MT and WY is pretty bad. My daughter's phone is pretty good, but she still has issues from time to time. If I had my vehicle which is equipped with OnStar I wouldn't be concerned. We will be driving a Suburu Forester with snows, with a good emergency kit, and I will add chains to it. But two women driving from MT to FL in January - just trying to be safe.

Haha! I had totally forgotten about the 2000 Year Old Man. He knows everything!

Turns out I could have dumped in more, you could barely taste it. <scratching head> 'Course, it coulda been overwhelmed by the even bigger pile of poultry seasoning I dumped into it as well... when you get your herbs/spices cheap at Costco and Winco, you stop measuring them.

I'm not so sure we want to keep the vampires away, tho. According to everyone who comes into my house (which I keep fairly dark) a vampire lives here. I'm not sure if they mean me or some other vampire that's sneaked in while I wasn't looking. Since they have to be invited in, and I ain't done no sech thing -- OH DEAR!!
how come i can't see you in my mirror?
how come you never come around here in the day?
how come you start to hiss when i say my prayers
and you wear those stupid capes
and every time you see a cross, you run away?
hey, what'd you say your name was anyway?

And the turkey came out fairly good, considering who cooked it.

I might suggest that you think about a set of cables for the car, instead of chains.

Often times, if chains are required, they are difficult to put on. You either have to back onto them, pull onto them, or jack up the vehicle. If you are stuck, that can be a problem.

Cables, are very easy to put on. Takes about 30 seconds per tire. They are light, easy to handle, and a lot cheaper then chains.

With chains, you are limited to about 20 mph at best. With cables, I've run 60-70 mph on packed snow and ice.

Cables will do almost what chains will do. Only heavy snow of a foot or so will chains outdo cables.

Can I share my Montana good neighbor story?

More than 30 years ago a very young 7 drove across the country. After spending the night in Missoula she found her 72 impala with gas leaking all around it.
At 4am the fellow at the gas station across the road (yes there were still mechanics at them back then ) walked over, helped me push it over to the station, replaced the fuel line) filled the tank and refused to take any money for the repair. He simply said he had a daughter and hoped someone would do the same for her.

That is why my ultimate goal was to move here at some point in my life, well that and a little of the wanderlust.

Happy holiday neighbors near and far.

It was all part of a grand conspiracy to lure Seven to Montana

Now that's interesting to know. I've never had cables, only chains. The chains work great in deep snow (and mud too) but they do seem like overkill on plain old packed snow/ice. Think I'll look for a set of cables next time ... won't add much to carry 'em along with the chains.

Like I mentioned, you can run 60+ with them. Another neat feature is if you hit dry patches of dry pavement, keep on going. With chains, you would really have to slow down but with cables they travel just fine. As long as the dry patches are few and far between.

I come up through Salt Lake one time and when I hit Evanston the Chain Law was in effect. I had none, they were at home. So I stopped at Wally world and grabbed cables. I run 250 miles on them. Took them off at Rawlins and drove 220 to Casper. In casper there was about 10 inches of snow on the ground. I put them back on and run all the way to Sheridan at 70 mph. Never spun a tire, van didn't wander, nice trip.
