"Technically you've always been required to pay sales tax an mail order and online purchases. The new law just shifted the collection burden to the retailer. Not a new tax, just new enforcement of an existing tax."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Eli's discussion Coldest day ever for Divvy riders
"I'm actually more inclined to use Divvy in this weather. Trips that I would ride my personal bike for the entire trip in nice weather, I'll use a combination of a train and Divvy in bad weather."

Hey Cameron! I actually got word this morning that they found us a host family. Yeah! They're pretty close to the campgrounds actually. I'd love to meet up that evening or somewhere along the way for some good ol fashioned chainlink fun. Thanks again for looking into it for us. Cheers!

Hey, for the IL beach SP ride, would you mind if myself and Brittany were to share a site with you and liz? we have a 2 (and 3) person tent of our own. I wasnt sure how this all worked so I put our names down on the spread sheet but that can easily be changed.
