Well it looks like the Suburban is fast becoming the vehicle of choice for coyotes.:eek:

From the headlines:

BOGGS TOWNSHIP -- Police discovered 13 illegal immigrants Sunday evening in a Chevrolet Suburban on state Route 144, according to a news release.

U.S. Border Patrol storytext('story'); On August 7, 2006, illegal immigrant Adan Pineda-Doval, 20, rolled a Chevrolet Suburban packed with twenty-one (yes, twenty-one) illegal immigrants while fleeing U.S. Border Patrol agents, killing eleven and injuring ten others.

Crashes stir up broader concern
6 accidents yield dozens of arrests. 31 more suspected illegal immigrants are caught in traffic stops as penalties on smugglers are mulled. At 7:11 a.m. on I-70 near Seibert, a Chevy Suburban rolled with 10 people aboard. At 8:03 a.m. on Interstate 76 near Brush, a 1999 Chevy Suburban rolled with four occupants. Some of the passengers had minor injuries, but no one was taken to a hospital.

9 suspected illegal immigrants killed in Yuma crash
The Chevy Suburban was carrying 21 people when the driver tried to circumvent a checkpoint on the highway more than 30 miles north of Yuma, according to authorities.

I had 9 people in my 99 Yukon once. I was commong back to DFW from Tulsa in the middle of an aweful storm when some of my friends broke down on the way back. 150 miles later and some cramped pasengers we arrived home. Just a note we also had 2 sets of golf clubs and 4 suitcases before our friends joined us with all of their stuff. Tight fit.

I guess if you're desperate enough ... Of course, getting onto an airplane anymore is about the same. Crammed in like cattle. We're taking a short trip soon and my boss bought my ticket ... a MIDDLE seat. I'm not happy about that.

I'm 6'2" and always looking for legroom on a plane. Here is a great site for identifying seat locations. seatexpert.com My favorite is the pair near the wing exits. I HATE THE MIDDLE SEAT TOO!
