I have gone a-stray, again!

Well I still have the 83 f250, 99 SD and the Escape but I must say I have back slid!

3 weeks ago I became the proud owner of a "Hampster" better known as a KIA Soul. It is a great little daily driver at 30 MPG.

This should get Dave and Joe going again like the last time I went a-stray!

That's ok. I looked at the Kia Forte really hard. I like the way they look but they didn't design it for guys 6'4 230 pounds lol. I fit in it but I'm a little claustrophobic and don't do well in cars on long rides. My Jeep Liberty likes to "squeeze" me after 100 miles or so.

These days MPG are the way to go!

Just don't forget where we're at

Kevin you may want to look at the soul. I am 6'2" and 175 and my wife is 6" (weight with held under threat of death) and we did great with 3 in the KIA for a 3 day weekend in Cleveland and 600 miles round trip. I is a little smaller than the Escape and a lot more than the SD!

We almost bought an Escape but around here, the 4wd or Awd models were really expensive. We couldn't afford a new vehicle and got a super deal on the jeep. She likes the looks, I like the V6 power and it's off road abilities. Now I don't have to take my truck to go fishing. Where I go, 4wd is very helpful and sometimes required but ground clearance is a must any time of the year.

Yeah that always made me wonder. What was the reasoning behind using rodents in the commercial?

Kevin we are safe. She needs me to fix too many things around here!

Joe I will have to work on the hoodie pics over the next few days. Hum I wonder if the local costume shop has a hampster?

Oh, now you have gone and done it. I am thinking too much!
