    Yeah, I've heard that it can be pretty nasty (rainy) up there this time of year. I lived in Seattle for 12 years, I can do without that.

    I've been in Dallas/Fort Worth Texas for over 6 years now. It's so dry here that there are wildfires all over the place.

    yeah, I looked up on Google Maps. The distance between Seattle, WA (Where I grew up) and Dallas, TX (Where I live now) is 2200 miles by road (about 1700 by air).


    That's like driving from Belguim to Eastern Urkaine (or even into Russia), or perhaps going down near the Turkey/Syria border.

    Got to agree with Richard Traugott about the tires and the shoes. Working construction I end up in some God auful places you wouldn't want to be in anything but a tank, hence the Burbs.
    The best tire I have used on the older 2 wheel drive Burb is a set of Workhorses TXR's They have a real work lug to them for mud and snow. I haven't gotten stuck with them yet in anything Maine has to offer. But they are an off brand I think sold by VIP here in Maine. Resonable for a 235/15 I think I paid $60 each a few years ago for those. I have to buy 4 more for the 94 Burb we have now, those all season tires ain't worth a sh*t in snow.

    The Park Rangers in Death Valley NP all drove trucks with BFG All-Terrain T/As and the Rangers down here in Anza-Borrego Desert SP drive on Goodyear Wrangler AT/Ss (which is what I've got on my 'Burban). I'd go with whichever one I could get the best deal on.

    Steve, I bought my "Burban used from a dealer in Irving TX, through eBay. I looked for quite a while until I found the one that I wanted, and the biggest selection was in Texas!

    How bout that. They call it the Texas Cadilliac for a reasons. about 70% of the vehicles on the road down here are trucks or SUVs.

    Well on my way down here, I stopped in the town of Newberg Oregon to visit some friends and there were more white Suburbans than I'd ever seen before, most of them pulling horse trailers.

    I loved my Jeep, but the 'Burban is really growing on me. We were heading off to the desert last weekend and it handled like a dream on the twisting paved roads and was smooth and quiet (unlike the Jeep) on the off-road.

    I've been to Newberg, Oregon. Nice place up in the hills on the way to McMinnville.
