My Truck

I loved my truck. I say loved because I just sold it. I am bummed for a couple of reasons. First, I loved my truck. It was an awesome truck, low milage, great shape and I could haul stuff whenever I needed to. I even loaned it out to my friends so they could haul stuff with my truck that I loved. Second, a very good friend sold me that truck for a smoking deal.

But mostly I am happy that I sold my truck. First, we don't need three vehicles. About six months ago I bought a 1989 Nissan Sentra. Not exactly an eye grabber and does not fit in as well as my truck here in Baker City, OR. where we have lots and lots of ranchers and cowboys. But it gets an average of 32 miles per gallon and that makes up for it all. the second reason that I wanted to sell my truck, and honestly it was the major factor in this decision, is that in selling it we take another big step towards being debt free. I mean really debt free. I have written a nice check to the mortgage company and our payoff on the house is now $433.16. I know, it is very exciting isn't it!! At least we think so. We figure that by Feb. we will have all debt paid off including Chris's van, and will be 100% debt free. I am very excited about this. I think it was worth selling my truck that I loved.
