Since I got the car in January, I have been taking the truck on and off of standby insurance to do things like move gravel, or to move the girls last weekend. Then just like last weekend, it ends up just sitting under the tree and not being used.
I happened to mention selling it at work and one of the managers asked that I bring it in. So I extended the insurance out another day and drove it in. Yesterday when he decided to buy it I was then on a limited time frame. After work I got one more 1,000 pound bag of gravel, got it unloaded, cleaned out the truck and got it back to the work parking lot prior to midnight.
Today I signed over the title, deposited the cash, removed it from my auto policy completely and am just down to the car now.
It has been a great truck. I never loved this Ranger like the one before that was totalled. But it took hundreds of trips to the dog park. Allowed me to join the farmers market and transport lots of cakes. Moved me to California and then became a work horse for bricks and gravel.
When I cleaned it out last night I kept thinking where did all this stuff come from. I had three atlases, a bird guide, binoculars, emergency kit and six books in this thing and there is no trunk!! That doesn’t even include all the miscellaneous things like gloves, sunglasses, umbrella, pens, change, tarp and other junk in the truck.
