    Yo!

    I've been lurking in these forums for quite a while, but finally creating an account seeing that my truck is going to be purchased very soon.

    About the truck: 2012 Black 4x4 DCLB Sport.
    - 4x4 to charge to the hot springs behind the mountains here and up in the Bishop/Mammoth area (and hard to get to climbing spots).
    - DC so I can throw the kids in the back (2 little dudes).
    - LB (and carpet kit) so I can throw a cap on and sleep in the bed.
    I'd actually prefer a Manual to an Automatic, but meh... not "that" big of a deal to me. A locker would be nice as well... but, I can manage without. 4x4 should get me where I need to go.

    About me: Software nerd, climber, surfer, martial artist, long distance dad. I'm going to be "moving into" my new Tacoma in a few months, so I'll probably posting some interesting posts here and there about my setup, experiences, etc... (and hopefully no stories of getting harassed in the middle of the night by local authorities :D).

    I plan on modding my hous... err... truck up quite a bit. How can I not after perusing these boards for so long!? Some of the trucks on this site are @#$%ing awesome.

    Bank account... it was nice knowing you.

    :woot:

    That's what I thought to, then financial aid for school pulled the rug out from under me :(

    And post pictures when you get your truck!

    Thanks for the warm welcome! To add some of my stomping grounds (in order):

    Santa Ynez, CA: Born and raised
    New Zealand (Nelson): Lived there for 3 years
    Seattle: Lived there for 2 years (visit frequently)
    Portland: Lived there for 2 years (visit frequently)
    Hawaii (Waimanalo): Lived there off and on growing up (visit frequently)
    Santa Barbara: Home

    I plan on "not" moving any more. I realized I'm slightly addicted to the sun ;)

    Will most definitely post some pictures when I get my new girl... err... truck.
