Had an Avalanche (same frame and innards). Got rid of it. Cost $125 every fill-up.
Think about a hybrid
No, that's an escalade and it calls for me.
Yours works too now?
$125 per fill?! Wow, no thank you.
As for the fill-up....I'll think long and hard about it.
If you had an Avalanche and got rid of it for a hybrid, you had no reason to drive an Avalanche. Sometimes there is no substitute for a truck. I throw $100 in my F-150 every fill up that will last about 400-450 miles.
Yup, soon as I read your post I opened Wallet and my card is now functioning! Super stoked!
just to prevent any conclusion-jumping, the Avalanche (which is identical to an Escalade except for branding) was our truck for our son and myriad activities, from skis, boards, four kinds of bikes, tools, etc. So "need" was justified. When he moved to LA and no longer needed a truck, we got rid of it. I was also pleased to not have $125 gas tabs twice a week. It has not been replaced, hybrid or otherwise. I encourage thinking about hybrids.
Glad to hear Google wallet is working for all of you again!
Yeah I want a pick-up truck, but can't justify it with all the driving I do. (90 miles round trip 5 days a week). When I can afford two vehicles, I will be getting a truck though.
While we're on the subject of cars, here's a shot of my son's 1985 Westy:
Boy that is sweet. I love old VW's.
Well if you like THAT one, check out the car he's selling!
1982 Datsun 280ZX 2+2, only 5000 made! 5-speed, t-tops, a gorgeous ride and flies down the road like a dream! Remember, you don't drive a 280ZX: you put it on and wear it
I had an 03 Escalade ext, loved it until about 90,000 miles then it was nothing but trouble. White Diamond with chrome 20'a, very sweet! Ended up picking up an 03 Dodge Ram this year because sometimes you just need a truck...you just swallow hard at the pump.
<--- Waiting for BB to go BERZERK because she's a Guide now and is a bit limited on her employment of clever innuendo
So what's for dinner everyone? Anything interesting tonight? I have been cooking greens for the last several hours, yes the house now stinks lol, but dinner will be bbq chicken, slow cooked collard and mustard greens, rice and a salad.
I may have drawn blood biting my tongue on that one.....so hard....to resist.
I'd like some greens please!
We are having open roast beef sammiches with au jus. Tater chips. Salad and some sort of vegetable. Nothing fancy.
Hearty beanless chili here. Son is allergic to beans so no legumes for the household tonight. The house smells pretty good though!
Just me and my daughter tonight. She's having chicken nuggets, corn on the cob, and Apple. Me, not sure yet, but it WILL involve bacon.
We are all so proud of you!
Google wallet works!!!!
And dinner: Boxed hamburger helper...stroganoff.
The important part of dinner is the glass of vodka and a hand rolled cigar after I eat. Still have about 2 hours of work left tho...then dinner....
Now that is an interesting combination!
My favorite part of dinner was the glass of port I had afterwards
Oh, not hungry anymore. (Burp!)
