Goodbye, old friend. You've served us faithfully and well for ten years now. You've taken us through deserts, up mountainsides, down rocky washes. You've made ten trips to Arizona, with loads that would break the backs of most, and ten trips back home. You've made so many trips to Mexico you can now speak the language. OK, strike that last comment. In all that time, you've never let us down. But, dear friend, your mileage has reached the point where you, like us and the aging rabbit, need to go into retirement. We'll miss you.
Hello, new friend! Not brand spanking new, but a 2004 Silverado, with only 38,000 miles. The full sized back seat will be comfortable for Annie and Otto when we head south for the winter. No rough roads for this baby, as we opted not to go for another 4-wheel drive. I hope it serves us as well as the Ranger has.
