I sure would like one of those new Toyota FJ Cruisers, but I've got some other bills happening right now...

Hmmm . . . still no posts from her or better yet pics . . . I imagine we'll hear or see something by day's end though.

Oh, oh - someone blew my cover! I was hoping to slip in unnoticed - like that is likely........anyway.......

Have been saving all those pennies and quarters out of caches (just kidding!). This is quite a way to celebrate 900. BTW - if anyone is in the market for a good used Matrix - mine is at Downeast Toyota - it's no frills but runs like a top.

A grandbaby whose car seat pushed the Matrix's front seat up so far there was no leg room is my excuse. So yes, we have a new geomobile - it's grey like my hair so I guess we can call it the Menopause 4x4...........Hubby has promised he will not whine if I go 4x4ing with it! That's the story!

but it's too shiny... we'll hafta take off those nerf bars to give ya some more clearance, some bushwhacker flares would look really nice on that, and if ya need any parts we can sneak into jakes yard at night and get whatever ya need... :rolleyes: :D ;)

heee, hee - a ride with Jake proved that these units can do it.

I was warned though to turn off the side air bags when I went 4 x 4ing! That would have been cute - the geocrew tring to stuff those babies back in.

By the end of the winter it won't be as shiny either!

I just pull the fuse out... actually, i'd be suprised if mine even work still... (there's only a few things that do work on it, and i dont think those are one of them...) :rolleyes:

Sharp looking rig . . . but Hiram's right . . . way too shiny. Give her time though Aaron and she'll get a few scratches and dings from rock and mud and that will take the shine right off.

Now about sneaking into my yard and getting parts. . . .;) :D

Shucks . . . you should have come with us on the Tread Lightly events -- nothing too crazy, but we did ride a little "harder" than our ol' TGIF trips.

Woo hoo - truth is with 1st hubby I used to have an old jeep - with a home made wooden cab.......it was the hummer of its time. We went on many a woods road ramble ride with it

My son, Dave has actually put his Tacoma in some very unusual places. I seem to remember a roam down on the Kenduskeag stream bed I think it was - which was less than pretty.

Thanks for the well wishes. I am excited about a little more capability!

Speaking of Dave . . . you might want to keep an eye on him. He said something about you not fully utilizing the 4WD features and that he would volunteer to take you out on a few outings . . . worrying about a few scratches might be the least of your concerns after reading about Dave riding the Kenduskeag sans a canoe.;) :D

Oh, I have not question my son knows how to fully utilize a 4 x 4. He was checking out the videos on YouTube.......and that made me laugh. One of them reminded me of the day I had him (as a small child) on the back of a 4 wheeler and we pitched over the dirt hill beside his house and went right over backwards - pinning his head (Thank goodness it was in a helmet) between the fender and wheel. A wonder he wasn't killed or hurt. Boy, did I learn my lesson..........but he got hooked - you name the toy - he loves it and now - Toys for Big Boys!
