Called out to do a Foley change at 4 am...
Coming back - more traffic and waiting...
A snarl of heat, and construction,
And 2 hour drives in a Red Sea of Taillights and waiting.
I just decided to make a change.
I drove to the apartment, and got the title to Trucky,
And went directly to a Subaru dealer...
To auction off my soul... for the next 5 years.
I walked in, and was overwhelmed -
I felt as though I had finally found My Tribe.
This has a tent attached!
The bathrooms are equipped....lol
I like Subaru as a company -
They seem to be independent from the Big 3,
And have a real touch for the contemporary issues -
Like Marriage Equity, and Dogs. (link)
I always say that if you don't ask, the answer is always NO.
So I went in for a test drive.
I live in Dallas, but this aspect of Far North Dallas
Is annexed into Collin County.
(My uncle did that, actually!)
So they shopping is pretty fine.
And there it sat. A Subaru CrossTrek.
Close out model. Just a few left on the lot.
Out with the old -
Thanks, Dearly Beloved Trucky
For many adventures
And look at this - a sun roof
And all kinds of features they just didn't make 14 years ago...
I felt a little old talking with the sales person...
Back-Up Cameras, and Continuously Variable Transmission...
BlueTooth Handst-Free calling, and getting to hook the iPod up etc..
After all.... Trucky had windows that you roll up and down - by hand!
I had the SalesPerson drive me around at first,
To see how comfortable the ride was.
When I have knee surgery, I will need many rides.
And I had to see if I can get in and out with no trouble.
This sits a little lower, but still no bathtub seating.
With a 10 year warranty!
This dealership also washes your car free...
And they do all the service free for the first few years.
I think I am going to like this!
