Danger ranger was running like poo and the check engine light was flashing not just on. Had to drop it off. At least I get to drive a real truck for the weekend.


Last time I had this one while the ranger was in the shop I blew a leak in the intake gasket and we had to replace the intake (heavily pitted) and the spider injectors. Freakin $1600 worth of work on a 'spare' 98 Chevy lol.

Well the house is in contract!! So glad that I do not need to show the house to anybody else. Maybe this means that I can finally install my winch.

I had almost 20 showings and 9 offers. The final price was well over the asking price.

Just kidding, we were actually worried about the appraisal being low. My realtor added a clause that they have to come $15k out of pocket if it is low before we negotiate.

Even if it is low, which I checked the compatibles too, I am still coming out of this deal with over $45k in my pocket after fees. Not too bad for a little over 3 years if you ask me.

Could you have had $55k? $65K? $75k If you'd asked more? To me, if you're having that many showings, people are seeing your place as a smoking deal, not actually what it's truly valued at. That's just my opinion obviously...

Mine can sit on the market for a year as far as I'm concerned at this point, I'll be just fine. When I say I'm broke, I'm far from it and still sitting WELL above the national savings account average balance that's for damn sure! LOL I'm not going to lower it to the point where I've got a bidding war on the place.

If I was hurting for cash, I sure as hell wouldn't have spent $25K cash on vehicles in the last two months and dumped another $8K in cash into my house out in Az. Remember, my only debt is houses, not cars, credit cards, student loans and crap like that... I actually just got my van title in the mail today!

BTW, if you bought 3 years ago... You bought in a CHEAP market. I got my place in '06... Tad different scenario/market when it comes to profit cause of when I bought. My money is coming because I've paid off almost half of my mortgage in 8 years. Technically, I'm taking a loss on it even if I get a $30K check when it sells. My place here in Vegas... LOL, I just had it appraised. I'd feel guilty if I sold it now compared to what I paid but dgaf cause I'm not moving. My goal is 100% debt free life including houses in 7 years.

LOL, I'm laughing... A particular friend of mine so far got throwing knives from his 12y/o daughter, a throwing ax from his girlfriend and a couple AR magazines from his parents so far for V-Day!

From a 1:30-2:00... I'm not sure if I'd poo or pee my pants first! But I sure would enjoy owning something that sounds like that!
