    Driving the K5 around constantly is killing my budget :(

    Big difference between 13 MPG and 28 MPG.

    Amen to that, but for different reasons. My truck is too nice to even take into the snow so I want it to all go away ASAP. And of course a good rain to wash all the road salt away...

    What makes a truck too nice to take in the snow?

    I suppose it's not the snow itself that's bad, but the road salt they throw down every time it does snow. Vehicles here in the Ohio rust belt don't last long if they spend winters driving in that slop. My '73 Blazer is a 95% original time capsule in excellent condition and I want to keep it that way.

    I agree. I managed to spin my front-wheel drive Cavalier earlier today making a left turn. Luckily the person next to me got around before I turned all the way around and there was no other traffic coming. I ended up running into a curb and having to back up to get to wear I could drive the proper way on the road. It was scary!

    I think we were in the high 60's here as well today. But we did get snow last week, the last time was Easter morning '99.
