If there is one thing that we can take away from traveling, it’s that it usually requires a decent amount of money. Why, even for me to travel to New York to visit with family will cost at least $ 100 in gasoline expenses and tolls. And while it has been suggested to me before to simply fly up from North Carolina to visit with my family and friends, given the length of time with which I stay in New York, it simply makes more sense to have the convenience of my car.
There are other people out there in similar situations where they may be visiting with family and friends several states away but who prefer to have their personal vehicles with them. Versus renting a car or flying up without a vehicle, it is simply more convenient (and often cheaper) to have a personal vehicle readily available. This cuts down on the chances of you having to inconvenience a family member or friend to borrow their car. It also reduces the expense of having to rent a vehicle for a lengthy period of time.
