my dream & future plans | personal
For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted a truck. No idea why, really. I think growing up, I thought my friend’s Dad’s truck was the grooviest thing ever because he could put his dog in the back (an Australian Shepherd, no less). From then on, I was hooked. I’m the kind of person who likes to be prepared wherever I go. And if you have a truck, you’re always prepared, right? You can throw all sorts of nameless stuff in the back, and if a mudslide heads your way – no problem! 4-wheel drive, baby! Realistically, though, Randy and I do love to camp and ride our dirt bikes. A truck is pretty much a necessity when hauling around motorcycles, especially when we plan to tow a trailer one day :)
I guess I’m just a dreamer. In the end, it’s not really about the truck. It’s just a hunk of metal. What I really look forward to is the memories we’ll make as a family, camping and spending time together outdoors (with camera in hand, of course). That’s when I’m happiest.
Anyway, here is my future truck (thanks www.Toyota.com!) Except two dilemmas remain: 1) We need a double cab with a standard bed (instead of the shortened one). Does anyone know if they make these? I want a truck, but I don’t want a monster truck. The Tundra technically has the room we need, but the Tacoma is plenty big enough for me! And, 2) Who’s going to donate me $31,269+??? :)
