A chronicle of our life in Northern Arizona, a showcase for my photography, adventures, and a discussion or two on exploring the outdoors. Also a tale or two of Overlanding - Jason

Well after a lot of debate, we decided to take the plunge and get a new car. Crazy I know, especially with all the bad MOJO at work. Our daily driver, a 98' S10 Blazer, was getting long in the tooth, and not wanting to start every day. So we went down to talk numbers with the local Dodge/Kia dealer on a Kia Soul. Little cars look to have decent ground clearance and damn good mileage (27 city 35 hwy) and not cost an arm and a leg. So after talking to the finance guy for awhile, they pulled a 2010 Soul Sport around for us to test drive, it is a used car, so the price was in our range. Another hour later, and we're cruising down the hwy in a new set of wheels... now to hit the sticks and get our Rally on!
Just need to find a Gerbil suit to drive around in!
Ya'll know I'm gonna have to Redneck this little thing out!
All in all the Martin Swanty Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Kia Dealer was great. We haggled price, going back and forth, but in the end they took good care of us. (Oh it was fun when the asked for proof of residence they wanted two utility bills with both our names on it... they didn't get the concept of off-grid = no utility bills, they settled on a cell phone bill and our water delivery bill) We got it for a low payment, they washed it, and filled the tank for us! That really means a lot.
