1-A-Week: Week 21: A tow hitch

Jun 1, 2011 by

We finally broke down and bought a new car.  Well its not new, but its a second car for us.  We had been sharing our car for several months since my old truck died.  I didn’t mind sharing as I am working from home now and I didn’t need another car so we took our time, looked and shopped for cars.  My wife, bless her heart, changed her mind many many times as some woman are able to do.  When she finally found a car she liked, then we couldn’t find it in the color she wanted.  So we waited some more.

Then one day we decided just to get an old Jeep instead.  And so we did.  A red one.  Its very nice.

But it had a useless 1 1/4 inch tow hitch on it.  So I took that off today and put a real 2 inch hitch on it.  And thus I am now selling the old one on craigslist for my 1AW this week.


1AW is a project by which I’m getting rid of at least 1 thing each week that I do not need, want, or use anymore.  Doing at least one thing per week helps me reduce the clutter in my life and make room for what is truly important.
