    The Lord must love stupid people or he wouldn't have made so many.

    Why is it that when I am in a hurry, everyone else on the road goes 15 MPH under the speed limit?

    Cool

    Garman and Sirius are a must. Got the new Droid phone from Verizon. That thing is great.

    My Garmin Nuvi 750 has a built in FM transmitter and media player. I stick a loaded 16GB SD card in it and have more music than I can listen too in a month of driving. The nice thing is that if I have it routing me somewhere, it will pause the music, tell me to turn, then unpause the music.

    I drove Ford vans from 2000-2003 new van every 90K miles. They were OK except the brakes were horrible. These were 1/2 ton vans. Way to lite for HVAC work. In 2004 I got the new design Chevy van. It was a 1/2 ton also. I liked the ergonomics better than the Fords. Seemed to be more comfortable. The 4 wheel disc brakes were fantastic.

    Both the Ford and Chevy had V6 engines. No power niether one held up that good. pretty much a goner at 75K. Chevy tranny was terrible. would not last more than 30k on any of the 15 we had.

    Now I drive a Chevy 4x4 2500 HD extended cab pickup with an ARE topper and a great ladder rack. The interior is cloth ergonomicaly adjustable bucket seats. It has the tow package, 6 speed auto/manual tranny, built in XM satellite radio, Garmin Nuvi, laptop stand, 1000 watt inverter with two batteries, wireless 3g air card, I can use any AT&T Internet access portal for free, but the kicker is the 6.2 liter Vortec V8 engine @ 403 HP. Plenty of power to scoot right on down the road. At 12 mpg I am glad I don't pay the gas bill.

    They had to talk me into this truck. I wanted a van. I sure am glad I got the pickup. Make those 360 miles in one day calls a lot more bearable. I will never go back to a van unless I have to.

    Talking

    I used to drive 129 miles to a jobsite every day and then 129 miles back home every night. Left my house at 5:30AM and usually got home around 5:00PM. Bob and Tom got me through the mornings and my Ipod got me through the evenings. Long meaningful cell phone chats with the old lady were common also.
