We were talking at work the other day about trucks, gas mileage, the Louisiana winter/crappy drivers we have down here durring storms ect.... i said i like my excursion for the fact you never know when you might need the extra cargo area, 4x4, ability to haul the enclosed trailer...... our conversation....

Her : that truck is huge... it's like a mini 4x4 school bus
Me : yea it's my get around vehicle!
Her : I could almost put my car in the back of it... but i bet it doesn't get good gas mileage
Me : nah, not to worried about that, i live close, and it's my "Work-UV"... what's your Prius get
Her : about 45-50mpg... what do you get
Me : LAID....
Her : you're freakin crazy! that's awesome!

Kids are awesome

You know you drive a X when you have to throw your seven yr old into the backseat.

Every time she climbs out if there is anyone within earshot she yells, "Our car is huge!" Lol

...When you lose your dog in the truck! I was working on the Ex and Pokey (dog in avatar pic) was running around outside. I had the door open and I was going in and out. About an hour later I locked the truck and called for pokey. With no response from pokey I went in the house, figured she might be in the woods. Two hours later I was very concerned because in 8 years Pokey has never disappeared for more than 20 minutes. I told my wife Pokey had not come home. She said what were you doing? Working on the truck. Did you look in the truck? No... Sure enough I opened the door to find Pokey sleeping in the third row!

When it costs more to fill the tank than it does to register the vehicle (it was $100 to renew my registration - tank of gas runs me ~$130)

Had that happen the other day, and his was lifted 6" and looked like the 33"s would just fit

Also had a kid roll down his window on his Hyundai and ask if I would sell, and how much EX's go for because he wants one

I once had a guy follow me home to see if I'd sell my x. I have also come out to find notes on my windshield asking if I'd sell!

Yup, I have people ask if I will sell mine as well. I even have friends of other people ask me if I will sell for their friend. lol

Like 5 years ago it was cool to have a "for sale" sticker in the corner of some glass somewhere on the vehicle. We should start a new trend with "not for sale" stickers in the corner. lol

6 adults out to lunch and remark they each have more room than in any other vehicle, AND there is more cargo room behind third row than their suv..
Then they see the mpg on the lie o meter and understand why we love our diesel ex so much. I had driven 150 mi hiway to work after a fillup, had 22.4 mpg on the display, and i get that strictly driving hiway. :-)
