My truck as you well know is a 4Runner SR5 4X4. After the unfortunate accident it is now a Toyota truck green with a white hood and fender. Passenger side fender so you can get the whole experience. I tell that tiny snippet, to tell you this much better, more fantastic story.
We’ve been waiting to get the truck out of the shop so I could hook a trailer up to it and make the trek out to Richlands to fetch our grill.
The day finally came. Manders and I got the truck back about a week or so ago and I first, ventured out to my folks house to pick-up the trailer, then second, went out to Mandy’s folks house to fetch the grill.
For those of you, who’ve never pulled a trailer, I was you before this past Saturday, it’s daunting. It’s like doubling the length of your vehicle and putting a hinge in the middle. A hinge that causes you to reverse in reverse. Going backwards in a car or truck is a pain anyway, the whole time you are keeping in mind that to go left, turn right and vise versa. With a trailer, if you want to go left, then go left. If you want to go right, go ahead and go. The whole time you are reversing with a trailer you’re thinking,”Why the hell am I doing this?” Then you remember that you’re doing it because the lock you have on your hitch is for a locker at the gym and could easily be cut and some mangina could very easily make off with your trailer.
So I went and got the grill with the help of Mandy’s brother and off I went. Mission successful.
There’s something very manly about pulling something with your truck. I’m not sure what it is. I guess it could be the functionality of the truck being put to it’s fullest use. Actually the fullest use would have been pulling a trailer down a old dirt road in 4H in the rain with new off-road tires and ZZ Top on the radio.
Speaking of ZZ Top, it’s song recommendation time. Just Got Paid is my new driving song. Check it out.
