Did you get a new car?!  Youve mentioned wanting  but then holding off. If you did, it’s a beauty!

    Thanks for noticing.  It is my rental from last week.  Actually, the depreciation on these is so bad, it is easier to rent one now-and-then for fun, than to buy one (I paid $171 for a week rental).  I took it out to Grand Canyon for another hike (new profile photo).  It was great fun, 460 horsepower, 10 speed transimssion, and the top down in the Park, despite the warm temperatures.  Sieze the day!

    I am adding the car photo to this post so it makes sense after I change my profile photo (which I try to update with each new hike--even though I seem to wear the same clothes every time).

    Well played!

    I feel the same way about boats and RV's--rent them when you want them and save a ton of money lol!  Hope you all don't mind a petty vent--but the wife of my Interventional Radiologist who did such a crappy job on my port insertions and removals is now driving a 100K new BMW X7, HE drives a special order Porsche (likely over 200K) and a super tricked out hopped up Pickup truck. While I am tooling around in my 2004 Suburban lol. Oh well!!

    That's awesome! What a good

    That's awesome! What a good idea! We paid $150 for two days renting A Toyota Rav4 in Phoenix. I now know I'd never buy one.

    Credibility

    But the Suburban has more credibility in the Home Depot parking lot!

    Ooops

    Ooops. The RAV4 was one of the cars I recommended to you in another post.  Convertibles are always fun for vacation.

    In my mind I am still 30. But my body keeps telling me otherwise.

    Renting a cool car sounds like a great idea.  Then you can change it up depending on your mood.

    It was great fun.  I hope to do it more often.
