Going Camping This Weekend
I’m off camping this weekend, enjoying what is likely my last “guy” weekend before Mrs. PT and I get to meet our little girl. Living in dry, flat, barren North Texas leaves me wanting for hills and real trees all the time. Luckily, that’s not too far away. A three hour drive to a State Park and we’re there. Camping is definitely one of my favorite frugal getaway ideas.
This week I enjoyed the newly re-branded Bargaineering’s How to Buy a Car (Without Getting Screwed). This video covers the car buying process very quickly and concisely. I feel like I’m pretty good at the process, but I still learned a few things from this guy.
