So this happened…. Yep, on a whim one day Tim decided he was ready for an upgrade from his Benz to a DIY dream machine. We had been talking about it ever since we had to rent a truck to build our planters. Then really started throwing the idea around once we declared a more active lifestyle. The last straw was falling head over heels for one too many “that won’t fit in the car” pieces at estate sales.
When we realized the payment would be the exact same, insurance would be cheaper, and we could officially do all the things we want to….we were sold. Techy Tim even got to keep all the fancy features he loved about his sedan. Warm-bottom toaster seats, bluetooth, and get this…the navigation tells you the current speed limit.
Now I say we need a big project and a road trip! If you are in the area, and in need of a fancy new ride….be sure to give Barreth Chrysler in Washington, MO a chance. They were beyond friendly and made the whole experience (dare I say it) fun. They didn’t give us any “mention us” discounts or anything….we just loved them enough to want to jump on our little
mountain molehill and shout it out to the locals.
What do you drive?
Does anyone else have a storage shed just for estate sale projects?
Got a kayak we can borrow?
You could’ve traded in your car for a collection of hideous ceramic clowns and I’d still be thrilled just to read a post from you guys! That being said, I’m SO thankful you got a truck instead of ceramic clowns 😉 What a manly but pretty truck it is! I bet you guys burn calories just trying to get into that thing.
Hugs and love!
Right! I have to fall out of it 🙂
At least it has a step to help me out hhaahha
Wow…! That looks pretty impressive. I once visited a store where they sold cars you could build yourself… I was totally impressed but I would personally fail miserable building anything that technical. In all likelihood it would explode on first try… 🙂
Oh my gosh, that would definitely be something that Tim would want to do! I hope he doesn’t see this 😉
I don’t think the hubs will let me get rid of his kayak. But Creve Coure Lake is pretty fun! We’ve got a 2 person kayak that he takes out sometimes on the river with one of the boys, then we have to do this major car/kayak shuffle.
Congrats on the truck. But isn’t it amazing what you can cram in a car when you have to? Rick dang near broke my car trying to haul cement blocks for a patio before we had an SUV.
Hahaha….I got a WHOLE lot of mulch in mine this summer! Thought my rear axle was done for 🙂
I want to kayak at Creve Coure sooooo bad!!!!
