Well, I sold it back to the dealer, I decided I'd better do it not next month, not next week, NOW if possible. I got book plus am getting a buncha money back for the unused part of the service contract, enough to get a go-fast roadie bike maybe.
I can't believe how cheaply they're selling new SUVs at Saturn, which means GM in general. They really seem to be trying to blow out all the "units" they can, GM's going to tank maybe?
All it takes is one oil panic, or something, to make anything full-sized highly undesirable.
This done with, I was going to grab a rental car to go someplace tomorrow, which is not bikeable to this non-RAAM rider, but I found out, on a holiday weekend like this better plan ahead if you're carless and need a rental. All the rental places closed. I suppose I could hop the train to the airport, then rent a car there, but the trip's not life-or-death, I can find other things to do.
Now I have significantly less money going out each month, car-free people often note that not owning a car has allowed them to buy a house, save for college, etc that they'd not be able to otherwise. Yay!
I guess tomorrow I'll walk up to the Sportmart, and take another look at golf bag carriers for perhaps adapting into a carrier to take boxes up to the post office, which is a couple of blocks away from me. Those look dandy, they're light, can carry a fair amount of weight, and meant to handle some bumps and grass, etc.
whoo-hoo what a day!
