New tow vehicle
Just got back from the stealership. Ordered a nice 06 Nissan Armada with all the goodies. It should be here no later then Tuesday. I can't wait to see how it tows the doos. It even has a camera so you can see when backing up. This will be a huge help when hooking up the trailer since the wife is useless in that regard
This should handle my future plans of a toy hauler with a 9,000 towing capacity. Not looking forward to the gallons of gas consumed per foot. This will definately not be used as a daily driver. Will be used for only family outings.
I feel like I got raped on the trade in, but the wife didn't want to hassle with selling local.
Now I need to figure out how I'm going to pay for the gas on the two doos and this monster during the summer months......anyone want to join me and knock off a few banks?

I'm in... which bank?
Annette and I just bought a new Pacifica (matches the Limiteds silver, grey, black) for our excursions beyond the Delta.
BTW, we are heading to Havasu in April for the "Offshore Shootout"... big HP, big boats, big egos... thought we would watch from our humble skis.
You two should join us, it'll be a hoot.
Jeff & Annette
P.S. More info on the "Joker's Wild" poker runs is forthcoming

05Limited we can hit a few on the way to havisu
I told the wife we needed to go up there during the finals late in the summer. Her response was "it's hot"
We have some friends that I think will also be going to one of the poker runs, I think it will be a good time. Looking forward to it, and with this new suv I don't have to worry about towing. I was over my limit with the trailer and all the camping goodies on the highlander, so I was a little hesitant to travel any long distance.

and here she is.
THe back up camera is awsome. I need to clean up the garage so I can hook up to the trailer, just to see how easy it is going to be.

This is by far the best thing about this vehicle. I'm able to get the ball perfect in one shot.
