Me at 89 Years Old

“I go when I please and do as I please, and if I see a road I’ll take off and if I don’t know where it goes, I don’t care, I just want to find out.”

I hope I will be like Rachel at 89.

This is such a fantastic feature story on 89-year-old Rachel. Especially see the part toward the end about her road trips (she’s amazing) and why she is “not afraid” driving those long distances alone (hint: she has a CCW).

She will delight your libertarian heart.

    Yes, I would say Rachel is a preview of what Karen D will be like in 50 years. …that is a beautiful lady and a beautiful story!

    ..My own mother was like this, right up to the end. Free -spirited, fiercely independent and loved this country.

    540,000 miles… in an American car, and the same engine,wow. I mean WOW! THAT is really saying something. You better ditch that Dodge Karen and get something that might get close to that.

    I have a Chrysler. My GMC truck had 250k miles and the engine bearings started to go. I would have replaced the engine ($3,000) except that gas was $4.30/gallon at the time, and I was commuting 2-3 hours/day. My monthly fuel bill was $600+.

    Dodge, Chrysler, aren’t they the same thing these days? I lump them together. 250k, impressive. It wasn’t a straight 6 with a stick then I presume. What would you pick next? And, would you do the cash for clunkers deal? It’s not so different than Ron Paul bringing back taxes to his Texas district if you did, imho… well, sorta, kinda,.. I don’t know, this whole thing is just getting crazy it seems. $600 = the cost of a cheap/not-so-cheap apartment in downtown? It would be in my town.
