Cleaning up the Blog a bit.... lots of distractions over there >>>>>>>
I might be 'migrating' the blog - does that matter to anyone? 'followers'? i can just send out a new url if you want to subscribe to the RSS, right?
yay? nay? anyone care?
|'I used to live here'|
I came across this old Toyota truck last week when i was up in San Francisco & the memories came a flooding. This was my car and sometimes home for many years during the 90's - I had a cap on the back to keep prying eyes & the weather out & built my own carpet kit out of 'liberated' wood & remnant carpet [rose]. It had a gutless 4 cylinder, manual transmission, tape deck, cloth seats, stock everything. I could fit everything I owned in my little 4x4 & still have room to sleep. I slept in there in -18 degrees in the Bridger Bowl parking lot in order to get fresh snow, watched drive-in movies from the tailgate, saw sunsets & sunrises, caught air, peeled out, and she even sat in storage for a few lonely months while i was, uhh, 'unable to drive'.
She made it from Louisville to Wyoming and back several times, all over Colorado, Utah & New Mexico, Montana, Washington, Canada, Oregon - she was broken into in the lower Haight in SF & the mountain bike, surfboard and sleeping bag were still there in the morning... and finally to Bend where I lived for a few years & we parted ways.
Now I know why 'Old Timer's' always seem to gravitate to restoring the cars of their youth - i want it back.
