Hey Team,

I’m strongly considering selling my car. It’s been sitting around somewhere in California for over a year now and in the intervening time two very important things have happened. 1) I’ve learned how to travel the entire country without my own mode of transportation and 2) I’ve ostensibly run out of money.

Here’s what I’m thinking. In these times of high gas prices do I even want a car when I get back? Granted my car gets pretty good gas mileage (about 33 MPG) but that just brings me to another point. For the first time ever used cars with high MPG ratings are actually appreciating. Why not capitalize on that?

And yes, I will probably need some form of transportation when I get back but motorcycles are so much cheaper AND more fuel-efficient. Not too mention I will more than likely be moving to either the LA or SF areas and have ready access to planet saving public transportation.

Further more, how nice would it be to finish the trip with some kind of monetary cushion that would give me some stress free time to find another occupation?

Well, what do you think? Did I convince you? Because I’m not sure if I’ve convinced myself yet.

Let me know what you think in the comment section!

Thanks, Team.

I’m done.
