let me start by wondering, "Who would I have been without my truck for the past 12years?" I wouldn't have been a boat owner. After watching the shenanigans that occur at any boat launch area...a 4x4 rocks. I wouldn't have had refuge from the nothingness of divorce. In the face of walking out with nothing, I had my truck, which was something. I wouldn't have had a partner drag me up fire roads to trail heads and mountain hikes in search of myself. I may not be here at all without the means to warm my hypothermic self after searching for myself up a fire road, up a mountain hike, in an ice storm a little too long. Ah, Chevy heat good. I wouldn't have had means to remake myself as a carpenter, a house builder, and a business owner. And lastly, I wouldn't have experienced the joy of diagnosing, wrenching, customizing, and fixing which will always be a man-thing to do and a right of passage to the same. Thanks for having me here. Cheers.
