Gas Guzzler Time

I had a thought last week. I used to have a truck when I first moved up to GA. It always seemed to come in handy, but I owed too much on it and just wanted to get out of it. So I sold it and bought a blazer for cash. No car payments for 2 years that was nice. But I am getting to the point were I feel a truck would come in handy. I do know people that have trucks, but I am not a person that is going to call them up all the time and ask if they can help me.Asking someone if you can use their truck also says, "hey I got this heavy thing and I want YOU to come help me lift it." Plus you have to do it on their schedule.
I can think of 5 projects that I need to do that will require a truck.
1. remove swing set from townhouse
2. bring in some fill dirt to the house
3. haul off some yard clean up town house and our house
4. bring home wood for deck/remove old decking
5. Remove unwanted stuff from the house.

I was thinking about getting a trailer, but then thats just something else I need to store at the house and there is a tree in the way for easily getting things in and out of the yard.

So... Grant, I am going to go and look at some trucks this week. I am going to take advantage of the fact the gas is very expensive and No one wants a gas guzzler. Trucks have dropped in price and I feel I can get a good deal. I dont have to drive it everyday since I have a car that gets pretty good gas mileage.

It's people like you - you Rich! - that are destroying the planet and killing baby polar bears. The souls of a million trees cry out in anguish, appalled at your insensitivity.

Whatever. So, what truck you gonna buy?
