    Stumbled across this forum when researching Tacoma's. I live up in Rochester NY and I just bought a new 2009 4x4 Access cab, 4 cylinder, 5 speed tranny. This is my first Truck and my first non-motorcycle vehicle with a manual transmission. I am picking it up tomorrow and am very excited about it.

    I've been looking at the Tacoma's for a little while now but didn't think I'd be buying anything yet. Some woman decided to make the decision for me and smashed into my car :(. Luckily, her insurance is giving me more than double than what I would have got from trading it in, so it all worked out for the best :D.

    Welcome to TW!!! There looks to be a few of us here from upstate/central NY. Would like to see a trip organized at some point but I don't know of any trails that are too local.

    I may be moving to Baltimore soon so maybe I'll have better luck down there.

    Welcome to TW.

    What a small world. I am originally from Rochester (Pittsford) now in Ithaca. There are a few people on TW from Western NY.

    Congrats on the new truck.
