More wheels....

My recent replacement for the old Subaru that was sold off about 6 months ago...

It is a 1985 Toyota Xtra cab 2 wheel drive 5 speed that gets a cool 30+ mpg. It shows 250K miles on it but since it was towed behind an RV for much of it's life, it is actually much less mileage on the drive train. Ity is nice and tight and well taken care of and will be my runabout to Las Cruces, Albuquerque and back and forth to Silver City. Those miles add up and at $3.55 a gallon of true petrol sin alcohol, it does add up. Plus it is a really minimalist camp-mobile...that's fun.

I will look for a higher canopy or even a Flip-pac tent camper if one should show up...

Anyway, more as it happens,

Happy trails,
