    Why I don't like driving Mitch's Jimmy or any sort of K5. They take up too much space on the road and are a little too big for me. I took Mitch's Jimmy out for a drive today because it hadn't been driven since sometime in June. It needed to be driven so that some of the old gas could be used up, and I needed to make a trip to the bank. It drove pretty good, but I think that I will stick to driving my car from now on. Maybe one day I will find a vehicle of my own to use when I get the urge to play in the mud.

    ... try driving a bus or a dually. most of us have driven big things so long its second nature. what I don't get is when some person in a little saturn or something can't keep their side of the road. you could fit 4 of them side by side on most roads yet they have trouble with "my side, your side" especially problematic when I'm test driving buses or big trucks at work...

    I feel a chop coming on!:D

    Gofergurl, I feel the same way, that is why I drive a "Less than manly" Toyota. Those big ole trucks take up so much room on the freeway.:haha:

    well after pulling a 32 foot trailer, and a 20ft boat behind that for most of my young driving age, a k5 is nothing!!! drive something bigger you will then think its small

    Speaking of busses... I got a government license to drive busses now (I drive the bus back and forth from work here). Those are so fun to drive on these narrow roads :)

    I've never driven a bus or anything, but duallies and long 5th wheels make me appreciate how small my rig is.

    On a side note, the last wheeling trip I had a rig, I backed my trailer with the rig on it and our CC short box around a corner and a gas pump to fill up...the look on the attendant's face was priceless.

    I have one little single axle utility trailer that is such a PITA to try to back up I usually just unhook it and push it by hand.
