Michelle and I were talking about how we’re not as active as we used to be. We got to talking about some of the places we’ve been, the things we’ve done, and the things that we would like to do. The problem was that we had two vehicles that were not very travel friendly. There was the 2000 Ford Expedition with 200,000+ miles that was starting to have more and more issues and only got 13 miles to the gallon. Then there is the 2006 Dodge Caravan with over 200,000 miles, that while it gets better gas mileage, was getting to a point where we weren’t feeling too comfortable taking on long trips. So I went in search of a new vehicle, and what we ended up with was a 2014 Chevrolet Equinox.
So, at an average of 25 miles per gallon between highway and city driving, taking road trips is going to be a bit more economical. So, the road trips begin, and this section of my blog will chronicle our adventures. So keep an eye out.
