    There's a camping dude I watch on YouTube (Camping with Steve, Camping Steve, something like that), and he bought a 700-dollar Corrolla for camping after his SUV broke down. Good stuff.

    Edit: Oops, the car was $400! Even better.

    That's awesome. I love seeing regular cars on the trail. I mean yeah sometimes they get stuck but then they become part of the landscape for the next 1,000 years or so. Or maybe even part of a monument.

    All that being said, my current routine of camping solo is pretty awesome. The dog hates being in a vehicle, the wife prefers sleeping in a bed, and I love being alone in the wilderness. Win-win-win!

    Brokeback Mountain is the gold standard for being alone together in the wilderness, I should watch it again as well. We'll compare notes later.

    Beautiful. I love Montana. Would love to live there some day. Sucks about the smoke. We are on Day 2 of blue skies after weeks of orange/gray/death/roast. So I can breathe again, but can still see flames from my backyard. Ugh.

    So there's a new Jeep Wrangler coming out. Plug in hybrid that gets 50mpg. That is fucking nuts. And satisfies both my redneck/bro side and my treehugger/rainbow side.

    I'm sure it will cost $40,000+ so I won't actually buy one, because that doesn't satisfy my frugal/nope side. But hey, it's cool that it will exist in this accursed modern world.

    Sold the Mustang GT. The power is a bit absurd. There is nowhere short of a drag strip or a racetrack that one can safely utilize even the first half of the tachometer. If a fun car is so fun that you can’t even enjoy the fun does that make it a boring car?
    Further, I didn’t want to be associated with your typical muscle car owner. I don’t care what people think of me but for my own mind, it just bothered me. It was like being appalled at my own bad taste.

    Still sporting my 2008 Honda Accord V6 EX-L. Like every car I have owned, I'm gonna ride it til the wheels fall off or I crash it; whichever comes first.

    I drove this 1968 Jeep CJ-5 a few weeks ago and it made my 2012 Jeep Wrangler feel like a 1997 Cadillac Catera.

    I maintain an active, low-key lifestyle. I am a Lesbian Subaru Driver.
