This past November I stored my F250 for the winter. ¬*Same place as the inside storage for the Sunet Trail, but the Ford gets it's own garage (has a hard time hanging out with GMC, Chev, Dodge, Toyota). ¬*When it gets right down to it, my F250 just doesn't know how to play nice in the sandbox with the other trucks. ¬*Any way, it gets its' own private room for the winter months.¬*
I had Saturday morning to myself. ¬*Sunny, not warm ... but no wind. ¬*Thought it looked like a fine morning to go shoot 100 rounds of Sporting Clays. ¬*I'm sorry, but some things are best left for trucks. ¬*I just couldn't bring myself to show up at the range in the Subaru. ¬*Boy, I miss that big truck. ¬*Then I thought maybe I should get some lumber so I could build some shelves in the garage. ¬*Dang it all, where is that truck¬*
¬*¬*Too frickin cold to have the hatch open to haul wood home. ¬*
You know, when fuel was $4+/gallon buying that Subaru looked like a great idea. ¬*Sure, I get triple the fuel economy as that V10. ¬*But gosh, I'm only saving half what I did when I parked the Ford. ¬*Now, you really never know how much you miss something until you don't have it. ¬*I miss my F250!
So now I'm feeling blue. ¬*Made my first camping reservations for 2009. ¬*The sun is out but it's so cold the bumper is threatening to fall off that Subaru. ¬*Sure would be nice to grab the truck and Sunset Trail and hit the road. ¬*But what's this I see? ¬*2 inches of snow in Georgia
. ¬*Shoot, I'm better off staying at home after all.
So all this is the long way around to simply say I'm ready for winter to end. ¬*Spring can come early. ¬*I'm anxious to get the truck and trailer and hit the open road. ¬*Yep, I've got cabin fever and I'm ready for Spring fever.
