Warren and I plan to take off tomorrow for a three day trip to the Lanesboro area of Minnesota. We are hoping for some good weather as we are taking our bikes. That means we will use the gas guzzling pickup. It is a lovely vehicle but the gas mileage is less than stellar. When I recall the pickup my family had growing up ours is like comparing a old black rotary phone to a red blackberry. Our pickup was an old black dodge. We did not use it much but as Dad had a mechanic shop a few miles from our farm we would sometimes take it to visit him. Other than that I do not recall our using it much. With three kids I am sure we could not all pile in it together.
