I don’t remember the details, but some years ago, a company/website leased the name and Halfway, Oregon became Half.com for a while.

Wow, all I found was it was named Halfway because of the several halfway houses for itinerant banjo pickers.

Thanks for the report, your travels are always interesting. How did you modify the Thermacell for higher altitude?  a pic would be great.

Tonight, I thought we were going to have to call 911 for The Bride and yers truly.  We were trying mightily to hold back laughter regarding the story about Fritz, and dang near ruptured our faces.  I’m certain it would have required emergency transport.  
 

It’s much funnier to read about it than to experience the joy.  Stepping in the fresh and smelly “dog bomb” contributed to my dismay.  
 

Thanks for the chuckle.
 

 

 Fritz, the ninety pounder, had jettisoned his morning kibbles all over the, thankfully covered, backseat. Other targets were hit as well.”

Shaking out a seat cover on the side of the road? Yup. Done that.
