A very practical article for those potential ERs that still lack sufficient stash for a large enough SWR. Still, it kind of sounds like w*rk to me. If you enjoy changing your own oil and can adapt that to bartering with the family down the street - great. But, if like me, you got tired of getting greasy under the car back in your 40s, maybe the "traditional" LBYM and save, save, save would be better. There are many roads to ER. This is one of them which I would relegate to about my 5th back-up position. Of course, some things I already do just because it seems the right thing to do: Exchanging rides to the airport comes to mind. YMMV
