out with the old, in with the the older

randy has been contemplating selling his truck for a while now. he posted it on craigslist last week to see what kind of responses he would get and what do you know, he sold it today! it’s a bit sad to see that truck go as it has served us well, but it’s had some mechanical issues lately and we’re happy to get rid of it before it needs some serious work (randy was very honest with who he sold it to – an auto-mechanic bought it).

this is the first picture randy and i ever took together. this was after mudding on the shores of lake koocanusa. oh the fun days of dating :)

we called this truck “trish, the big blue truck.” we had many adventures in this truck…and we look forward to many in our “new” truck! let me introduce you to ___________ (yet to be named) ford ranger.

our new rig!

we got a good deal on this 1993 ford ranger and it has less miles than the dodge. and you know you live in montana when you buy a truck for some cash and a pistol 🙂 good negotiating, randy!

one thing we are really excited about is that this truck has a topper and fallon (squeaky pants) can comfortably ride in the back year round! there is no back seat which is a bummer, but the back has a nice storage compartment, etc. don't get me wrong, we love our dog and he is really sweet. he has this thing about when he's in the car and he squeaks insanely loud and obnoxiously. trust me, if you heard it, you'd be glad that he could comfortably ride in the back :)

another thing we are excited about is that this truck is a manual! i love driving stick shift and have wanted a manual car for a while. yahoo :)

i am proud of randy for being such an honest salesman and for doing the research to find a good deal on a new truck. this is the part where i end the post by saying that my husband rocks. because he does.
