Since the early 1990s, one solution has been run-flat tires, which keep rolling after losing all their air. But these tires have been available mostly on sports cars, not on the kinds of vehicles most people drive, such as sport utility vehicles or minivans. French tire maker Michelin has developed a system that extends run-flat capability to minivans and SUVs while also eliminating some of the drawbacks of traditional run-flats, also known as self-supporting tires.

My continent-hopping sister looked at me -- the sibling who actually uses her stove and who subscribes to zagat.com and Food and Wine magazine -- as if I had spent my post-college years in a black hole.

Much has been made lately of mapping features on the Web. They have their advantages, including the ability to customize the cartography. But I've found that maps taken from the Web do not help me much on the road unless they are So, as a map-dependent, I continue to linger by the racks in bookstores, comparing legibility and manageability - how the map folds.Still, it is usually hard to be sure how well a map will work until you get where you're going and see if it omits minor streets, has a crease or staple through an address or, worst of all, ends short of the destination.
