Happy 2012!

Well here we are, December 10th of 2012 and I am now just getting around to the first post of the year. If you need more updates, I cannot stress enough- the importance of visiting my tumblr. It has been a busy year, and while I might not have posted much on JoshsWorld.com, the site is still getting a nice share of visitors. I love reading all the positive comments people are leaving, especially on the Acura seat heater repair article. It is also nice to see all the supportive feedback regarding the MyPlates.com personalize plates debacle. I want to create more content that is helpful to people, so that is a new goal for the future of this website.

How Much Gas Money are You Saving?

If you drive an average of 15,000 miles per year, a 50 mpg vehicle will save you about $450 annually over a 35 mpg vehicle (assuming gas averages $3.50/gallon). That’s just under $38 per month.
429 gallons @ 35mpg = 15000 miles
300 gallons @ 50mpg = 15000 miles

gallons saved 129 @ $3.50/gallon = 451.50

If you drive an average of 12,000 miles per year, a 50 mpg vehicle will save you about $360 annually over a 35 mpg vehicle. That’s about $30 per month.
343 gallons @ 35mpg = 12000 miles
240 gallons @ 50mpg = 12000 miles

gallons saved 103 @ $3.50/gallon = 360.50

 

Llano Trip – Welcome Back Trip 2012

This post was added April 8, 2014

Dates:
April 27 – 29, 2012

Attendees:
Ashley B. | Chris B. | Josh K. | David R. | Megan R. | Jackie B. | Owen B.

Vehicles:
Chevrolet Traverse
Toyota 4Runner

Notes:
After a long hiatus, the Llano trips were back. On the way down, our armada of two vehicles was split up by some huge over-sized, wide load truck carrying a huge pipe. Coincidentally, when we initially arrived at the ranch, we discovered that the main water line was broken. Megan and Jackie shot a gun for the first time on this trip. This was also the first trip that I got to bring my 4Runner. Baller.
