    ive been able to get out and about in the tacoma, take my kid camping (he lives in NYC) and show him parts of the country (and things) he wouldn't otherwise see (like bears running in front of the truck on a dirt road in the middle of the lost coast) - its definitely been a great ride - so far anyway.
