    Had an Avalanche (same frame and innards). Got rid of it. Cost $125 every fill-up. :eek:

    Think about a hybrid ;)

    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.

    :) 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.

    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.

    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!

    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....
