Reasonable Price For A Car

Sponsored post

A friend of mine used to own a 1995 Lincoln Continental.  He loved that car, but it finally began to cost more to repair then the car was worth, after all, sentimentality on goes so far when it hits your budget.  So he donated it to charity, since it had quit running and began looking for a replacement vehicle.

Being on a fixed income, he wanted something that was serviceable and affordable.  He was not necessarily looking for a new car, but if one could be found at a reasonable price.  So where did he go to find a good deal?  He went to Cars.com.

Knowing my friend as well as I does, I was surprised at the car he ended up buying.  I thought he would go for a Cadillac or another Lincoln, but a Scion xb?  Well needless to say I was surprised.  But my friend said no matter how much he loved his Lincoln, the Scion was a much better fit for his budget and that he had said that three of his neighbors had the same model Scions.

He told me that he did his research on cars.com and was very satisfied with his results.  Now he has a used Scion xb and is happy with his new car.

I am not in the market for a new vehicle at the moment, but I thought I would take a look at the car.com website.  Since I live in a semi-rural area, I have thought about replacing my SUV with a pickup or small truck.

What I learned, is that I really don’t need to go and look through a lot Automobile Dealers to find the vehicle I want.  All I have to do is go to cars.com, find a vehicle I might like and the price it is selling for, then go to the dealer and take it for a test drive.

Hit The Road Going To Camp Sabros

The long wait is over, after of so many arguments and plans, I and my friends in the floor were able to make it. We were able to stick with the plan in going to Kapatagan in Digos. Our original plan is just to commute but my friend’s friend offered us a van that we can rent for a day with a driver. We supposed to rent one room in one of our destination but we changed our mind, with lots of going on in our country nowadays it’s better to go home right after our adventures.

After our shift, we bought things to bring there. I brought already my travel bag, I put lots of pairs there thinking I may changed lots of clothes because we were planning also to swim in the pool but it didn’t push through. It is because after our last destination, it is already almost 5 in the afternoon and we need to be on the road going home.

Traveling the place is easy but going to where we wanna go is a challenge especially when we are about to go home. I thought Camp Sabros can be reached by a car but nope it’s not, it can already reach by a motorcycle but most of the time it can only reach by a horse but when the ground is wet and slippery, it can only reach by walking and that time, we need to walk because it was raining already. Good thing I have my umbrella with me, there were 3 of us brought an umbrella so since we were 6, we shared the 3 umbrellas, 2 pairs each of umbrella. Some of us are excited to experience the zip line but too bad the rain really pours hard that the management did not allow us to use the equipment at all, so we just went there for coffee and for picture taking.

After Camp Sabros, we went to Mountain Highlands but it was just a bad timing because they are not open on Tuesday. So we went ahead to Lake Mirror, and afterward we went to the pool where we can also find the Kublai Park, the place was overlooking, you can even touch the fog that surrounds us since we are in a hill. It could have been nice or even more if we stayed for an hour or two but our time is limited we need to hit the road at least before 6 in the evening.

Travelling Alone?

I haven’t been traveling alone, sad to say but I am not brave enough. There are many things I have in mind that it causes me to take aback. But believe me, I really want to explore so many places and so I was able to check this tips if you are traveling alone.

You must know your limits, do not go with risky places because anything can happen there, don’t turn your little vacation to be a disaster, so keep safe and stay within your limits.

You must know your schedule, itinerary is the best. If you can get a nice spot you can go, ask for someone who can lead you the way, and you must set a schedule, it is better that way than just planning and will never be able to visit the best.

If you are so new in the place, take a map and it is surely available in the hotel you will be staying in. So at least even you’re alone, you know the way to go back to the hotel. Don’t depend on just asking in local residents they might trick especially if they know you are a tourist, it can make your life in danger. Get a map and be a Dora!
