    I used to daily mine about 20 miles round trip to work. Then I moved further away from work, because Memphis crime rate is bat shit crazy, and put it in the garage. My round trip to work is now about 85 miles which I put on my Nissan Hardbody. Now the Tundra is a weekend warrior. But will still rack up 600 miles + a weekend during football season commutes. Go Vols.

    Mine is used for pretty much everything.

    Work out of it so I put about 25k / year which includes many 90 mile trips to my hunting camp during the winter and towing the boat almost every weekend during the summer.

    And my girl doesn't like to drive so we take it out on the weekends and at night if we go somewhere.

    I lived in midtown right next to overton square. It was really nice, but just to close to everything for my liking. Your neighbor could probably hear you fart.

    That's where I'm at. Cooper street about a block from whole foods, a block or two south of Overton Park. We're only staying for a couple of years then moving on back to BR.
    downside is we live in a quadplex, and I fart pretty loudly :devil:

    Many to come.
    Mainly for towing. I don't put many miles on it. I ride bikes when the weather is decent and I have an old P/U for landfill runs and the Jeep Commander for basic running around.

    Mine's become a weekend driver, due to having a work pickup. It also sees mainly highway miles now, around 200-300 something on any given weekend (I go home a lot to see the chickita and my family). It occasionally pulls an ATV trailer or a pasture when I want to go shoot some prairie dogs.
