    I have always been very wrapped up in miles per gallon for my car. I reset my trip odometer every time I fill my car so I can calculate how many MPGs I was getting on a particular tank (trip odometer reading divided by number of gallons put into the tank). In town I get about 18-19 mpg and...

    Dh and I are leaving for our 80 mile hike this coming Sat. We will be hiking the NY and NJ AT trail. We are going with a Boy Scout group of about 13. Yes I am the only girl. We were supposed have 4 girls but over the past 6 mos 3 have dropped out. I am excited. I love to get out there and rough...

    Ok a spin off from my other thread. Say gas were $10 a gallon and you got 15 miles a gallon (average of all vehicles, not super good little cars or guzzling SUVs)... it would equal out to $0.66 a mile. So it would cost you 66 cents to drive one mile. It would cost us about $210.00 to fill...

    Thank God my new job is 1/6 of a mile away from my home. I have a very, very old car and can't afford a new one, and I can't afford gas, either. I will be starting in September, and I'm so relieved. I can finally reduce my expenses on gas.

    :smooch: and I didn't take any kind of vacation this summer -- we went to visit his mom and dad 3 hours away in July and that was the extent of our vacation time. So when I saw this come up, I decided that this is what I wanted to do for our "summer" vacation -- we're going to <a...

    Eh gad! I think I might gag. Our gas hit $3.29:beat: We have been planning a 2000 mile trip next month for almost a year. We are really thinking of taking the kia rio instead of the taurus as there is a 12 mile per gallon differnce. The only bad thing about the kia is no cruise(stick shift) and...

    I was watching a show today and they were talking to a couple who did "100 mile diet" for a year. Basically they only ate locally for a year, including buying wheat for flour, milk, meat etc. I would really like to try this for a year,(minus the meat for me but still needing it for DD and DH) I...

    If you like garage sales, maybe you'll see me here. I went last year and only hit 5 of the 14 participating towns. To find out details, do a search for "100 mile garage sale" - I couldn't post the link because I'm a newbie. But it's a fun one! I am going this year too. It will be great!

    Square Mile Living is a concept popularized by Vicki Robin, author with Joe Dominguez of Your Money or Your Life. In Square Mile Living people try to live as much of their life as possible within a mile radius (squared off) of where they live. This tends to focus and simplify life and increase...

    And I've been dying to go there.  One had just opened across town a few months ago, but, this one is literally just about a mile from my house.  It's much bigger, it serves fancy coffee, AND it has an enclosed play area in the middle of the store where you can leave little ones, but still have...

    Are you familar with square mile living? (based on your money or your life) I feel fortunate that we have just about anything we could need within 2 miles from home. Many things are a block or two away. I always remind Gabe of these things whenever he is considering new jobs. We are very...

    Spring is upon us and I just need to be outside!!! I took the kids down to the park to play basketball and decided to take some laps around the walking path there. Five laps is a mile and that's what I did! :yippee: I also climbed back up the steep hill to our house after that without getting...
