New Geocaching Accessory


originally uploaded by drmomentum.

A Jeep. Continuing my tradition of buying cars for as little as possible, I got this one from the father of a friend of my cousin. Thank goodness for the auto grapevine of cheap transportation. In fact, it cost me less than some big screen TVs I saw in Consumer Reports this month.

No more bottoming out. I hope.

As I pointed out to the girls "Don't brag about it. It's older than both of you."

They were all excited, especially because it had "features." The "features" of our usual cars are things like "you can roll the window down... with a hand crank!" That's what our kids are generally used to. So the fact that this car can lock all its doors electrically is pretty amazing. As Maggie points out "you wait long enough..." meaning, that we can no longer avoid "features" by buying 10 year old cars.

I like it, but it's nothing anyone else is going to get too excited about. What I like best about it is that it was cheap.

On the other hand, it's also in great shape, has relatively low milage for its age and is mre appropriate to what I have been using my car for in the last year or so.

Well, consider how much room they had in the back of the Saturn -- no wonder they love it. M said "can we sleep in it?"
