I started looking at four-door pickups, but I'm afraid of what gas prices will do. Same deal with bigger suvs.
Most small suvs don't have much towing capacity. Some of the small vans can tow 3500 lbs., good enough for a couple of bikes and kayaks.
If I want to tool around in a sports car, we have a '95 Miata.
I had a Grand Voyager and now have a 4-door Chevy Silverado with a cap. I'm pretty sure I'm going back to a minivan. I need the cargo capacity, but hate the gas milage of a truck.

I'm gonna take advantage of the warm temps and go after a covered bridge down near the river today. If any of the southern contingent of inmates would like to meet for lunch and/or ride along for a bit, text me at 7four0-3oh4-fifteen ninetynine.

heres the bridge I'm headed towards:

and then this one on the way back:

by the way, I'll be on the Magna today

Never been to the first one but I stopped at Spud Run on my way down to Atlanta last summer.





Enjoy the ride today, I'm jealous!

Too bad it's about a mile off pavement to get there, would make a cool tag.

Fun ride yesterday. We didn't have any log crossings but I did have a couple of interesting moments on some snowy/icy/muddy (all at once!?) stretches of road.

The Craigslist Killer loop was interesting, I imagined the area would be more remote.

...forgot the lime


heres a good drink recipe:

Mason Mixin

start with a quart sized mason jar, fill with ice
add 1 shot amaretto
2 shots vodka
fill with orange juice
stir
enjoy


btw, spotted a bike for sale on my ride today:

across the street from the Speedway in Wellston is a pawn shop and in front of that pawn shop was parked a 2001 KTM 640 (didnt know there were 3 different versions so didnt notice which one it was but it looked like this):



It had 6400 miles on the speedo and a price tag of $3500, which KBB suggests is a bit high. Bike looked to be in pretty decent shape but the graphics decals were somewhat loose and a little scuffed...had aggressive dual sport (almost knobby) tires...front looked pretty good but rear was about half worn. shoulda took a picture but didnt...

For 3500 there had better be about $900 in cash under the seat....

thats kinda what I thought....KBB suggests retail prices for that zip code from 2590 to 3120 depending on which model...but of course its a pawn shop and they arent gonna want to lose money on the deal...if they gave $3000 for it then they probably wont budge off $3500. I'm thinking they gave $2500 for it and are hoping they'll turn it over for a quick $1k profit...if not, they have room to haggle.



btw, did I mention it was plated?
