I'm driving so much for my new job that I needed to make a decision about a car. I was standing out front looking at my beloved New Beetle Sport the other day and I knew that if I kept driving 340 miles a day six days a week in it that it would be gone by summer. My New Beetle is the same car from this post. It's been babied and I've only driven it every once a week or two. I worked from home for a few years, so it was only used when I'd run from the lake to town. I liked that lifestyle, but now I have a new one.
One of the people I work with has a Prius and when he trained me for his route, I got to see the inside of one and experience it for the entire trip. I was sold. I couldn't stop thinking about that car.
Not only do I need a car that can take a lot of miles and Toyotas are famous for that, but I need a car that gets amazing gas mileage and a hybrid is the perfect answer.
It was a big decision, but it already has over 1,000 miles on it and I love it! It reminds me of a Buick I had a few years back. It has that similar luxury feel and I forgot how much I liked that.
I love my job too! It is so fantastic. I deliver from pharmacies to nursing homes. It is a seamless part of my life and that is
so important in a job. I've never been fond (who is?) of the dread of
going to work when you don't want to. It's a wonderful independent
contractor position and I'm very grateful for it.
Since I took that picture of Ozark Cafe I've been up to Jasper several times now. I enjoy driving around the town square to leave town and go down Scenic Highway 7 back to the Little Rock area. The Prius handles the Ozarks like a dream.
