No. Where we are thinking of going (and taking), driving is the better option.

Yeah Paul. You never go anywhere without a truck, full support group, and all the luxuries of home.

Wow - Dang!

Your truck has been through the grinder this year. I am starting to think the angry spirits have your VIN number memorized.

At least she didn't hit the RIGHT side of the bed. Then you'd have a bent up truck and a messed up 990. Glad you are OK - let's talk soon.
