I\'m just about tired of my freaking EXPLORER ergh... So I've been debating the last few weeks (seriously) about whether or not I should keep my Explorer. Today is just about the last straw. I decided to pull it up to the shed in the back yard, dig out the camping gear, and see how well everything fits in there. I stuffed, rearranged, pushed, yelled, threatened, and I can't even fit HALF the stuff in there! One of my requirements in a vehicle is clearly stated in my head, "MUST BE CAPABLE OF CARRYING SUFFICIENT CAMPING GEAR FOR A COMFORTABLE WEEKEND, AND AT LEAST THREE PEOPLE INCLUDING THE DRIVER." My Explorer isn't living up to this vehicle code of conduct. I think I need to seriously look at some K5's and Suburbans... Maybe some pickups if I can find one of the extended cabs for a reasonable price. Plus the dogs found out while we were in the back yard that the Explorer is small enough for them to just walk right into without trying, and enjoyed jumping over the seats, knocking over my pepsi, and not budging until I drove them around the block /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif However, there are still several things I like about my Explorer which is why it's not for sale right NOW.
