Make or Buy

Thanks to the feedback from some of you, I decided that going over to the AAA office in Mountain View after work today and paying them $15 for a passport photo was a better deal than trying to figure out how to do it myself, even with a good camera, printer, and photo paper. Now I just have to mail it in. I need to re-read the instructions. I thought i just owed the $110 renewal fee, but one of my co-workers said he'd just applied for a new passport himself and the total cost was more than twice that.

I didn't even feel bad about using the "wrong" AAA office, because the California State Automobile Association is actually the Auto Club of Northern California, Nevada, and Utah. When I moved to Fernley, I didn't even change auto clubs, just my address.
