Thumbs up Great Truck!!


Way cool truck.
yer gonna love-it.

Sandra and I are really bummed that we had to bail out
of the NH Rally, it would have been our first. Just too many Family obligations right now. We will be out over the 4th though (mom-in law lives just 8 miles outside the Adirondack St. Park) The family has camped there all there lives. We plan to take her Dock'n in the Dacks at Piseco Lake.
We will raise our glass around the Campfire and wish Wally Happy Birthday.

Have fun people, be think'n of Ya.

Great color on the new trunk by the way

I agree, it was a totally cool look.

But safety and comfort is the way to go. Congrats to thatismytruc!

We might keep it so we can go on short trips so you all will get to see it on any trip that is within a two hour radius of New Haven. But then again, the yukon is REALLY nice.

Picked up my new TV today!! here she is:



I went straight to my trailer/hitch guy and I've got my hitch set up properly and my brake controller installed. I tried out the back up camera and it works like a charm.

Here sit my other vehicles:



The wagon awaits sentencing . I'm keeping my pick up truck (that is my truck). So, do you think I like white vehicles?

Congrats on the new Yukon! Not sure how you managed the same 'cost' new vs used. We saved a good $25-$30K buying used. Ok that was last year.. an 2003.. new to us though and came with awesome set of chrome wheels and tires worth about $4500.

Anyways the Yukon is by far the best 'travelling' vehicle we have ever owned. We have no problem doing long hauls without our feet and butts going into protest.

Now about those bikes... we try NOT to use the roof rack whenever possible. Anything on the roof makes the gas mileage that much more worst.... and its a pain to get stuff up there.

In the long run I'd say you are best to get some fold up bikes and toss them in the back of the Yukon, or else in the trailer. Fold up's are on our list for next year.

Cheers

I'll be putting thm in the trailer for now. I'll firgure out somethin more elegant later.

You misunderstand. Over the life of the loans, they would have been the same cost. 5 years 5.9% vs. 6 years and 0%. So why not get a new one. plus wife reaally wanted to get me a new truck. Why should I argue?

Cat Scale at both Exit 40 (Pilot) and Exit 56 (T/A) of Interstate 95.

Cool whitewalls on the trailer as depicted in signature, and a gorgeous house!

It would be very cool if you could swing this. Of course having more than one TV equals big insurance, registration and maintenance bills.

Thanks. I will do that soon. I'll need to check hours and cost.

I loved the WW tire look. I had to deep six them for two reasons, more than 6 years old, and they were not trailer tires.

Thank you again, I've been working on that house for 12 years. Almost done.

Truck stops are 24-hours, especially the T/A (Truckstops of America). The fuel desk is where the weigh-master [person] works; cost is about $8-10 for initial weigh, $2 per re-weigh. Each on a separate ticket. PM me, or do a search on Cat Scale for info.

I was on three scales today, weighing loads.
