Rolling Stone and Gasoline

Moss doesn't grow fat on a rolling stone, and vines don't grow on a rolling automobile.

Such is not the case with my truck, though. I've been favoring the bicycle so much lately that viny vegetation from a nearby hedge started growing up my aerial.

The last time I bought gasoline for the truck was back in April. Since then I have driven 266 miles, using 14.6 gallons of gasoline.

At this rate, I am filling up my truck about four to five times a year, spending perhaps $120 - $150 a year.

Dude, you are just killing me. Let's see if you can go the second half of the year on < 2 tanks.

This post wasn't worded well. I meant to say that I bought gas last week. I hadn't previously bought gas since April.

Two tanks a year would be awesome. Zero would be a real goal to shoot for. Maybe some day.

I wish I had noticed the vine before I moved the truck to rearrange the vehicles in the driveway last night.

A photo of the vine creeping over from the hedge and advancing up my antenna would have been awesome.
