    I too don't know about blogginh but I'm willing to learn. I gather I can share what's happening and share what I'm doing to save on my expenses:

    I am hoping to get a decent deal on purchasing a new vehicle. Mine is 19 years old with 179000 miles. Yep, she has been faithful with a few repairs over the years but she has reached the end of her rope. I just travel when I absolutely have to, and combine all trips in the same area. Selling this one for scrap will get around ...
