    Hey folks, I'm Mike. I live just north of Albany, NY. I'm driving a 2011 Silverado 1500 LT Z-71 Extended Cab (already 37750 on the odo!). I've been a Chevy fan all my life, and mostly owned Bowties. First truck was a '78 C15. Couple vehicles later (starting with a '73 Olds Delta 88 convertible that got the nose torn off in a snowstorm!), I got a '98 K1500 Silverado Ext. of my all-time favorite vehicles. After a few years of driving that all over NY, I opted for a 2002 Ram 1500 (w/ the anemic 4.7L motor)...traded that on a GMC Canyon that I drove for a couple years. After getting back from Iraq, I bought a 2009 Silverado 1500 Ext. Cab, and made the grave mistake of worrying about mileage in December 2010- trading the pickup on an Equinox. UGH!! Within 3 months, I was back in a FS pickup- my current ride:

    I'm a NY Army National Guardsman on FTNGD-CD (Full Time National Guard Duty - Counter Drug), so I am often TDY- heading to Camp Smith (Peekskill), Fort Drum, Buffalo, LI, etc. That, and a 25 mile drive to work each way has racked up the miles pretty quickly, but I won't drive anything else!

    Hope to get some good intel from this site, and if I can help, I'll try!

    Oh least 6" here in Vliet...other areas have more. I think this winter is going to be more like the winters we had when I was a kid as opposed to the last few mild/snow-free winters!

    Thanks for the welcome, all!
