A clandestine road trip powers Jessica Barry’s skillful second thriller

Authors of mystery novels and domestic thrillers tend to follow an old etiquette rule: in polite society, avoid talk of religion and politics. That may sound quaint, but many of us read these sorts of books with the expectation that our minds will be troubled by no more than the crisis on the page. “Don’t Turn Around,” the sophomore effort by Jessica Barry (“Freefall“), a pseudonym for a former publishing industry insider who now lives in Portland, entwines a tale of suspense with topical subject matter, and the result shows that she has both the courage of her convictions and an impressive cut to her imagination.

As “Don’t Turn Around” opens, it’s about midnight, and 25-year-old Cait Monaghan is parked in her Jeep in front of a McMansion in Lubbock, Texas; the house “wasn’t what she was used to, though by now she knew that she

Dog is My Co-Pilot: Tips for Taking a Road Trip Alone with Your Furkid | Lifestyles

Pack your car for convenience

Make a thoughtful list of everything you’ll need, keeping in mind that stopping for new snacks or supplies with your pet will be a challenge. Arrange the space in your car so everything you need for your pet is easy to access when he needs it, including pet travel bowls, treats, waste bags, medication, leashes, first aid kit, toys, and blankets.

Potty breaks

Meeting Rover’s potty needs is simple: head to the nearest rest stop, and make sure you keep waste bags and supplies on hand to clean up after him. 

Managing your own potty breaks, however, is a bit more complicated. Pets shouldn’t be left alone in a car, so what can you do when nature calls?  Find a pet-friendly business, and use their restroom. Pet stores like Petco and PetSmart, and pet-friendly hotel chains like Red Roof Inn, La Quinta, and Motel 6,

‘A bump in the road’: Cruise CEOs confident cruises will resume in US in 2020 | Business

Cruise CEOs say they are confident their companies will rebound after the worst seven months in the industry’s history.

At the annual SeaTrade Cruise conference, held virtually this year, the leaders of Carnival Corporation, Royal Caribbean Group, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings and MSC Cruises expressed optimism about the state of the industry. The executives said they anticipate a cruising comeback in the U.S. soon and again urged U.S. health authorities to give them an opportunity to prove cruising can be done safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is a bump in the road,” said Frank del Rio, CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings. “We will not cruise until we believe it’s 100% safe to cruise. It’s coming soon. Whether it’s Dec. 22 or Jan. 3, I think we’re in the ballpark. If a couple of things go our way, we could be sailing again soon.”

SeaTrade originally planned to hold

Road Trips Are Changing How Americans Travel

Debbie Carlson for CME Group

· Spending patterns are changing as more Americans stay closer to home for vacations, and choose road trips over flying
· Despite more trips by automobile, gasoline demand is still below pre-pandemic levels

Americans are choosing road trips over flights as they choose a safer-perceived way to vacation, and that’s having an economic impact, say analysts who follow the travel and retail industries. The phenomenon is expected to last at least through the end of 2020, if not early 2021, but it remains to be seen if this is a structural change in consumer habits.

Omer Rabin, managing director at Guesty, a property management software firm used for short-term rentals, says they are seeing several travel trends. Trips are shorter-distanced, generally about 100 miles away, and reservations are very last minute. They’re also seeing travelers repeatedly book the same units, with those

Kickoff time, TV for Auburn’s road tilt at South Carolina

Looking to capture its first road win of the 2020 season, Auburn will travel to Columbia, South Carolina, to face the Gamecocks next Saturday at 11 a.m. CST. The cross-division clash will be televised on either SEC Network or ESPN.

In its history, Auburn has played South Carolina the third-fewest times (12) of any current SEC team, behind Missouri (only three all-time meetings) and Texas A&M (10). The Tigers are 10-1-1 against the Gamecocks and are currently on an eight-game winning streak. They lost only once in Birmingham in 1933, a year after Auburn won a Southern Conference title in 1932 with a 9-0-1 record under coach Chet A. Wynne.

The teams met four times from 2010-14, with their most recent matchup resulting in a 42-35 win for Gus Malzahn’s squad inside Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn was set to play at South Carolina as part of its

In the Mid-Atlantic’s Chesapeake Bay watershed, an unprecedented project to document African American cultural and historical sites is officially underway.

Thanks to a partnership between the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the National Park Service Chesapeake Bay, the Chesapeake Conservation Partnership, and the states of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, $400,000 has been raised to not only map, but also conserve sites of interest to the African American community.

“Historic sites and landscapes important to people of color are widely underrepresented in documentation and conservation priorities,” the The National Trust for Historic Preservation said in a statement. “This work will take one small step towards addressing that deficit.”

The Chesapeake region’s African American history spans centuries. “The role of the African American watermen in the development of the fisheries of the Chesapeake Bay, from oystering and crabbing to processing and boatbuilding,
