How do we get around?
With the money Chad got for selling his Honda Fit we purchased a pickup truck and a scooter.
The truck is a 4 door 2008 Ford Ranger (a rebadged mazda bt50) 2.5 liter turbo diesel with an automatic transmission. It had about 61,000 miles on it at the time we purchased.
We added a high canopy (shell), 2 benches, AC for the back, a backup camera, and window film (tinting) on all windows. It gets better than 30mpg and with the exchange rate diesel costs $2.70 a gallon here.
The kids love riding in the back, Indy especially and the extra seating is awesome for service. We can squeeze in 11 people total(8 or 9 comfortably).
The bike is a 2014 Yamaha Nuovo SX. It has 125cc’s of raw scooting power. Water cooled, 2 rear shocks, front disc and rear drum brake. It was about 18months old and had about 3000 miles on when we purchased. It gets about 70 mpg and can fit 1-2 people comfortably (or 4 people very uncomfortably).
