Well my goodness today was certainly a first for this minimalist! I flew from San Jose to Los Angeles ( The dealer agreed to pay for flight, good lesson on the benefits of negotiation!). I have been in the market for a car for sometime now, felt good to find a good deal after a lot of research and hit/Misses.
While my goal is eventually to create a lifestyle where I mostly use my bicycle as my mode of transportation, a car sure is a nice asset and supports expanding one’s horizons. I am very grateful to have found a good deal on this car and for all the advice along the way (thanks FJC and Jay). This was a huge learning experience and a fun adventure.
