No name and nothing too fancy. Good power, easy on gas, and most important a first class top of the line stereo!

Gosh I hope someone young is reading and will take this advice. I did not learn this in school but it "should" have been taught:

Live cheap and save, save, save for an early retirement.
Get a college degree or a trade where you will be in demand.

I don't know about laugh but I never dreamed I would spend so much time alone and have a lack of real life friends as I do now.

Have a great day, all!

Today's Question(s):
You're building a vehicle to fit your specifications. What will it be; convertible, mini van, truck, etc? I would like a pickup this time. Large 4x4.


What "bells and whistles" (fancy options) would you like it to have? Not too concerned with the inside, but I would like to to come with something to tow behind it like a few trailers for hauling stuff, a couple of cows and horses to put in the trailer, and some hay balers to cut and bale the hay.

What will you call it? A farm truck.

Bonus Question(s):
What is something that you know now, as an adult, that you *should* have learned in school, had you been paying attention? Hmm. I was a good student, but I would have taken more shop classes. So I can fix things around the house. I am not good at that.


Just for Fun:
What is something you do now that your 16 year-old self would have laughed at? I wear white socks with black shoes. That was taboo at age 16.

This rig will be loaded to the max. Has to be full time 4x4. To make it easier to get in it will be a two door with larger than standard doors. The back seat and the passenger front seat will lay flat so I can stretch out to sleep when camping.

At this stage of my life, a mid sized sedan that is easy to get in and out of and where I can easily reach the pedals and the seat belt doesn't decaptitate me would be fine by me.


What "bells and whistles" (fancy options) would you like it to have?

I'd like a power seat that also swings to the side, GPS, a compass and a CD player. That's it.

What will you call it?

Mine.


Bonus Question(s):

16 is when I had driver's ed in school. I'll go with parallel park. I haven't done it since my road test.

My 16 year old self had to use rubberbands to keep her knee-highs up because she was so skinny so I'll go with "eat." That and "speaking up."
