While I promise I didn't die, the July-early October entries would have not only been exceptionally boring, but absolutely nothing happened with the car except a blown Turbocharger hose which set me back a total of $33.00.
Overall in those four months I spent a total of $465.44 on fuel, $36.27 on repairs, and $56.32 on maintenance. The vehicle was driven a total of 4692 miles between my June entry and my trip to Toronto which will be posted at some point in the next 24-48 hours...it still needs a bit of work.
The next few months will be significantly more interesting. I've already got road trips planned to Wilson, NC; Hauppage, NY; Harrisonburg, VA; and a return trip to Toronto, as well as many short day trips (like my trip to Pittsburgh, PA) from the Washington DC metro area which are still in the very early planning stages.
So stay tuned, plenty more is on the way.
