i always end up appreiciating my truck for exactly what it is.... my own little getaway from stress and the real world.
 or start a new hobby. i just took a fly tying class, and now im slowly becoming obsessed with fly fishing... now that is taking up all my money, and giving me ideas for new mods.
Trust me I'm right with you on all that. About 2 years ago me and my best friend got bored and just got in his truck and drove North. No destination, no Highways. We found a lot of interesting things and places and we have been just driving like that about 3 or 4 times a week and we always try and go a little further and take different roads each time. We go back and forth between my truck and his Sonoma depending on who has enough gas.
The problem lies in that he prefers to drive because I scare the crap out of him with the way that I drive vs the capability of my truck. On those drives I can appreciate hanging with him and talking about girl problems and what to do with life or I can appreciate the sights and nature and the helpless creatures we run over or shoot at with the 12 gauge, but I just can't appreciate my truck... It's slow, it handles like crap, it only holds 2 people comfortably, no one covets my truck ( except for my little brother who cant drive yet). The more I think about it the more I really dislike my truck. I love the Ranger and more importantly the Ranger Community, but specifically my truck just doesn't do it for me.
I've been trying to get into using my Digi Rebel more but I work during the good photo hours so all I have time for is night pics....boring!
