New Vehicle

OK, so our trip on 29 January to Twin Falls, was supposed to be to see Rudy's - A Cooks Paradise (see the post on the Boise Foodie Guild Blog), but, like some of our sojourns, they can get involved. This one was no different!

We went to see Robin's cousin, Randy Perrine, who works at Bob Green's GMC dealership on Blue Lakes Blvd, Twin Falls (Your're welcome for the plug, Randy!). Robin wanted to sit in a Cadillac Escalade. She did. $40K worth!

Instead of the Cady, we looked at this one - a delightful 2008 Chevrolet Equinox. Large, roomy, you can see over the guard rails of a bridge, smooth ride and comfortable seats and the maintenance and mileage on the vehicle won't be much more than the 1996 Subaru we are trading in on it. The back is large enough for probably 12 cases of wine, well, maybe 8-10!
I drove it back to Boise and the electronics on the car are awesome: MPG info, average speed, how many miles are left on the tank of gas, good cruise control, great radio and CD player and a great security system. This will be a great vehicle when we travel to San Diego later this year and maybe Texas.
OH, well, such is retirement! Cheers!
