The End of an Era

The old truck is sold. That truck and I have been through a lot together over the past 15 years or so and I’m really going to miss it.

I’m glad to have the newer, more powerful truck but it just doesn’t have the character of the old one. By the way, We’ve been on the waiting list for a spot to store the camper at the Navy MWR lot on the base since we bought it. A spot finally opened up and I towed the camper over there a few days ago. With the new truck, I could barely feel the camper back there. The difference in power is really amazing.

But I digress. We got a lot of interest in the truck…I was actually shocked at how much…and we sold it within two days of putting it up for sale. Probably should have asked for more considering. The guy who bought it is a diesel engine mechanic by trade. He hit a deer with his truck a few weeks ago and really needed a new truck quickly. He said he already knew a guy with a low mileage used engine he can drop in it next weekend and have it on the road again almost immediately.

Really nice guy. I’m glad it’s going to someone who can fix it and will get some good use out of it.

The end of an era.

On a related topic, I’ve got a 5 day trip to The Estate planned for next week. I’ve got a tractor reserved (again) to rent so we’ll give that another shot…hopefully the weather will hold up this time. I’ll let you know how it goes.
