2011 F350 crew cab 6.7L Powerstroke diesel.

Too sweet a deal to pass up. Great incentives from Ford for the model-
year change -- clearing inventory. My 2000 F150 has 190,000 mi and is
starting to nickel and dime me. Too unreliable. I have to give it up
on the best vehicle I've ever owned. Sad, but I'll get over it. It
will become the Stanley dump-run/wood-cutting truck, living into a
ripe old age if the head gasket doesn't blow.

Well, due to Clavemeister Tom's weird desire to play with dead fish
instead of fur and feathers (did I say BAIT?), my fishing car now
smells appropriately fishy.

Just picked up a new Audi A8L. An old man's car -- how appropriate. I
needed something that could move, give me luxory, and got good gas
mileage. We got 29+ mpg on our trip from GA to MA.

The old bike rack wouldn't fit, so I took off the front wheel of my
fishing bike, wrapped it in a couple of old quilts, and put it in the
back seat of the A8L. Fit quite nicely, with room to spare for other
things.

Is that F350 a duelly?

A duelly? Does that mean I have to carry a gun? :-)

No, it's not a dually.

Guns are required in duallies here in Nebraska. They use them to put
down guys in Audis that get stuck.

Ya know, I was thinking about that spelling driving home today when I
saw a dually, albeit a Dodge. But I *knew* you'd have a remark about
it.

Audis don't get stuck. Saw a demo one time of 4x4s going up a hill
that was unplowed. Audi was the only one that made it. Besides, what
do Audis get stuck in in Nebrasker - corn?

d;o)

Home safely and managed only 26 mpg on the trip. There was no damage
due to the hail storm.

If you don't occasionally get stuck you're not doing it right.

Probably explains the low mileage - angry driving will do that.
