    Is straight cash better than folded cash?

    First my dear wife gave me full permission to buy a brand new one, but I just couldn't do it. I rarely drive and the truck is mainly to haul stuff to work on our old house. I looked at online ads and dealer inventory for YEARS. I could not believe the price + mileage I was seeing, the frame rusting on older models scared me, but once in a while there would be a nice one with lower miles. I finally came to the conclusion I would be okay with a 4 cylinder with 4WD as they seem less desirable and are priced a bit more sanely. I ended up with a certified used from a Toyota dealer - SR5, 4 cyl 4WD with about 25k. The dealer was a little scummy, they pushed so many dumb warranties on me, but I resisted, but overall I am happy. I'm not going to wing any races with the 4, but it really isn't bad. Makes me drive more safely in a way.

    Life of building excellent credit, the luck of getting a good paying job when I was 19, over funding a 401k, withdrawing 20000 from it once I turned 60.

    I've spent roughly $20 in my lifetime,.... which was consolidated in to the couple years I spent in Reno. Had a buddy that stopped at Bully's on a daily basis, I just watched him feed that machine most times. Lol

    I can’t gamble much either. I hate losing money. Lol.
    It’s awesome when people can do it and win a big amount though like @4wd.

    I don’t get keno, everyone I know plays it and I’ve heard gnarly wins like that one,but I’ve never won more then $5.
    How ever I did turn my last $2 out of $20 into $785 on a slot machine.

    Most I’ve ever won is 157,685 nickels not enough to buy a Tacoma.

    Nope, it’s enough to get a pretty sweet long travel kit from Baja kits tho.

    I walked in to the mirage ended up married and I’m think my beautiful wife owed 74,000.00 in student loans. I took 5 grand and 6 years later two beautiful daughters and a great and beautiful wife. That was the only time I ever won in a casino. Best bet I have ever won.
