    Totally would have, but Door Dash/uber/lyft doesn't exist here.

    Yup. Besides, the only place that serves breakfast doesn't open until 8, and this was all before 6 AM.

    I would love to live in a place where none of that crap exists. But that cold... :eek:

    I have a friend who lives in Casper, and she makes fun of me during hurricane season because we close schools at the slightest sign of an approaching storm. Meanwhile y'all are driving to work in ten feet of snow and hurricane-force winds.

    Casper's winds are pretty nutty. Don't get me wrong, the whole state gets its, but Casper is pretty consistently windy. I'm a 2000-3000 feet higher elevation that the actual city of Casper though, so they get a bit too hot down there for me.

    You guys in FL are walking around in heat and humidity that I can't handle. It's like a deep fryer. I'd be crispy and drowning at the same time.

    Well, get you a laugh at my expense then. Cooking dinner last night I did something I've been smart enough never to have done before - - rubbed my eyes right after dicing a jalapeno. It was a bad 40 minutes. At times really bad. Ball of molten iron bad. To top it all off, I was grating a wedge of romano cheese right after my eye-fire subsided, and it slipped. The currently very sore thumb knuckle that lost almost all of its skin will provide me a permanent reminder of my idiocy and carelessness.

    Oh damn! :eek: Glad there's no permanent damage. If you do a lot of peppers and such I would recommend something like this https://www.amazon.com/Disposable-V...x=food+grade+gloves,aps,107&sr=8-1-spons&th=1 to keep the gnarly stuff off your hands. Much easier to remember not to wipe your eyes if wearing food prep gloves. As for the grater incident, the gloves won't help you at all.

    More funny, because I have an almost full box of them. I didn't put them on until I was concerned about getting the bandage on my thumb wet.

    Hey, @LarryDangerfield, I have a question about your Outback Wilderness. Several actually.
    1. What's the insurance like on it? I know, lots of factors, but just having a ballpark idea helps. If you are willing to share info on those factors it would be appreciated, too.
    2. How is it for comfort? Would a long drive (8-10 hours) be ok in it? Better or worse than the Tundra?
    3. What has your real world MPG been like?
    Of course, feel free to PM is you don't want any of this blasted publicly, especially the insurance factor stuff.

    Think definitely needs a rinse, but looks pretty good. RW = Rock Warrior, right? And RW was basically like the Pre-TRD Pro? Never really looked at Tundras until 2019. :sorry:

    I'm 26 years old and have never been pulled over or gotten a ticket. It went down ever so slightly from how much my Tundra was. 100% honesty I actually don't know what that figure is because I'm on my parents insurance and I just toss them some cash each month lol. Comfort is definitely better than the tundra. I've done several 6-9 hours driving days and I'm sure it's a combination of several things but the major factor is the fact that it is a power adjustable seat so I can fine tune it to my body and how I feel. I've never sat in a Tundra with a power seat so I can't compare. The real world MPGs is an interesting topic. When I'm doing my normal life routine of remote starting heading to work and remote starting heading home from work mixed in with some short errand runs the gas mileage is terrible. Like if I do an entire tank of nothing but short trips and idling it gets like 14ish mpg (obviously this figure would be better in warmer months.) That being said, a long drive with the cruise set at 61 I get 26-28 mpg. If I bump up to 71 it gets about 23.5. 80 is about 22. So day to day life it's not a giant improvement over the tundra but on road trips it's significantly better than the Tundra. Any other questions I'll gladly answer them all

    All good info! Thank you! I'm just kind of toying with the idea of a second vehicle someday and trying to find a fun but practical option. I was looking at Teslas, Chevy SS, and other sport sedans, and then I rolled back around to the Subie. It's about $10,000 cheaper than anything else I was eyeing. Sure, nowhere near as fast, but definitely more versatile and with 9.5 inches of ground clearance it would be drivable in the winter snow too. Can't find anything that would beat it, honestly.


    All this is pie in the sky, as I have other things that are higher priority. Still, fun to shop around and dream.

    Well, in June it'll make 3 years in my Tundra. I love this truck, and with the investment of a GFC she won't be going anywhere. The only thing I would possible consider would be adding another vehicle.

    I look forward to seeing it once it's "finished" (we all know a build is never truly complete.) Also as you already know cars are my thing so there's a good chance that I've driven the car you're curious about and there is a 100% chance that I have read and watched reviews on whatever car you are looking at. For example I drove a Chevy SS, was not impressed whatsoever. It was an automatic, cannot speak for the manual.

    Jeep Cherokee XJ! That's what I want as a second vehicle. But all of the ones for sale around here are always 2WD... :(

    Those Subarus are sweet. I saw my ex-girlfriend driving one in town the other day. Figures she gets one after we've split up! :rolleyes:

    Yeah, the SS would only be good as a stick. It's got loads of power, but it's so heavy you need the stick to make it fun. (That's what she said!)

    Some options on my list in no particular order:

    1. 2020+ Toyota Supra with the V6. Zero practicality, but I think it's gorgeous, sounds sexy, and would be a blast to drive. (This is the sexy, crazy redhead that you know is trouble, but your blood isn't being pumped to your brain. She's gonna kill you, but you'll die happy.)
    2. 2017 Chevy SS with the 6 speed stick. Last production year for the fewest kinks. High power RWD with a stick is a special kind of fun. Not going to carve canyons, but it'll be entertaining. It's a fast grandpa car. (This is the smokin' MILF. Treat her right and she'll show you what a cougar can do.)
    3. Tesla Model 3 Long Range version. Slick, techy, and you can't beat the MPGs. Added cost of getting a charger installed at home, cold hurts batteries, and batteries determine the lifespan of the car. (This is the high maintenance girl that is out of your league, but somehow you still think you have a shot with her.)
    4. Subaru Outback Wilderness in silver or white. This brings utility to the table and still keeps it fun. Not gonna be super fast, but it's going to last and go just about anywhere. (This is the girl next door. Not the hottest, but also less likely to go crazy on you. Marriage material here.)
    5. Jeep Wrangler 2 door with a stick. MPG won't be mentioned, but it's going to be capable. (This is the tomboy girl friend that you've always kinda flirted with. She's not super girly and a bit awkward, but you know you could have lots of fun together.)

    The right vehicle is worth a plane ticket. Especially if you can use your travel distance to negotiate the price down.

    Lol I like your list and comparisons. Without a doubt if I had the option to have two new vehicles my second one would be a Jeep Wrangler unlimited hands down.
    He's right you know. Either fly or see if you can convince someone to go on a road trip with you and they can drive the support vehicle.

    Yeah, I thought I'd do it for a bit of humor. The actual funny part is that it kinda steered me toward the Outback even more. It's the only one I tagged as marriage material.

    As for the Jeep, the Unlimited is the 4 door right? What would make you pursue that over a 2 door?

    Only reason for the four-door is because on quite a few adventures I have two other people with me plus I'm always carrying a boatload of stuff to be prepared ( clothes, first aid, tools, recovery, etc.) I think I told this story on here before, but to continue using your ladies analogy, I drove a Jeep Wrangler unlimited and fell madly in love. It was like I found my soulmate. I was all ready to put in an order for an orange one. But then I found out she had that one fatal flaw. It's like I found out the love of my life loved killing neighborhood pets when I wasn't around. I made the mistake of going on the Jeep forums and they had an entire section dedicated to problems with thousands upon thousands of posts. It was absolutely unreal how many they were and how literally not one part on the entire vehicle was safe from showing up in that section. Even things that have no reason having issues in modern times. I was absolutely heartbroken. It was to this day my favorite vehicle that I've ever driven and I still think about it often. And I realized the warranty would take care of problems but, and this is a big but, I often find myself in areas that are in the middle of nowhere with no cell reception and it's -20. A warranty is not going to do me any good at that moment in time. Not to mention who wants to always be driving a loaner while it's at the shop.
