Remember When...

I realize this is a bit late for Memorial Day, but it seems appropriate for any time of year these days.

I must confess that I drive a 05 SUV that is paid for and I don't want anymore debt right now in this "great " economy.

I made a few trips recently by vehicle and I must say that the money I spent on gas was unbelievable.

I could have rented a small compact or taken my other car, but I enjoy the ride and comfort that the SUV provides.

I remember in 2000, when I first purchased a SUV there was a wide open comfort that brought me to love the space and "gas" wasn't as bad as now.

There was a time when I could ride forever it seems on the gas I put in the compact car I drove in the 90's. I now need the space and comfort... I am a little stiff and a lot older now and I remember the days...

Yeah, I can understand your feelings, suvs are nice to drive. My last car was a honda crv and I loved it. I am seriously considering buying a hybrid next however, mostly for the environment and because I love the idea of sticking it to the big oil companies!-hee Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

With the exception of a 2.5 year stint from 2002 through 2005. I've lived without a car since 1996. You want to talk liberating. Being carless is liberating--not easy to do--but a huge nubmer of headaches that I don't have.

That said... I belong to a car-share service that has hybrids, and they're grrreeeeeaaaaattttt!

Kvatch, Carless huh? Do you live in a moderate to large city? I just wondered, because the area I'm in is quite rural and going without a car would be very difficult since we don't have any public transportation close by. Thanks for the comment and the hybrid recommendation.

I live in a growing rural county in Georgia and there are no public transportation. A car is needed just to get to a store here.
