I definitely use my truck to haul wood, tools, and all sorts of crap. But like most people, I can’t afford to have a second primary vehicle just for getting groceries, traveling for meetings, or heading down to the pub. And speaking of the pub, what you see above is the parking lot for the place that inspired this post last week. Because the spaces are so small and tight, anyone driving a massive vehicle gets to park about three levels down. All the close spaces are “compact car only” — well, compact cars or my truck.
So yeah, besides costing about half that of a full-size truck and saving me serious cash every week on gas, my little truck also lets me park closer to the pub. Win.
