Adam and the Ferrari

Who isn't a fan of Groupon or LivingSocial deals? I don't know of anyone who wouldn't want to pay significantly less for something and these companies allow you just that. A few months ago, I was scouting through the Baltimore deals and came across one that allowed you to drive either a Ferrari or a Lamborghini around a race track. Adam was all over this deal!
We have scored some great opportunities through these websites: The Beer and Bacon Tasting, Annapolis Craft Brew Festival, Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ at National Harbor...ok, things that involve drinking apparently, as I review the list. That being said, both of these companies offer wonderful experiences that we are interested in and feeds my desire to be frugal with all things.
I cannot find the article that I read, but it was about how life is most meaningful and most sustained happiness felt when you acquire experiences instead of possessions. This fits Adam and I to a tee. If you ever visit our home, you will find it quite simple, us having adopted a minimalist approach to possessions with our constant need to move. We are all about getting out and experiencing everything that life has to offer and have a wonderful time doing it, not being bogged down by things.

Ferrari vs. Lamborghini...which will he chose????

The Ferrari it will be, waiting his turn

I have to admit, this looks good

Like a kid in a candy store

Pretty car

Unfortunately, the "track" was just a bunch of cones set up around a huge parking lot, so you were not able to go very fast. They also could stop your drive and kick you out if you squealed the tires, thus not as fun as it could be. Despite this, Adam got up to around 80 mph and had a great time. He also came away wanting one...surprise, surprise.
