"JR" comes home

Here is the new truck. Good for hauling us through the mountains, hauling us out of snow, and hauling the Triumph. Picked up today a 2008 Chevy 2500HD Silverado 4x4, with 6.6L Duramax diesel and 6-speed Allison transmission.

We have decided to call it "JR", after my folks Jack and Rona. Maybe it also stands for "JR Ewing", from the 80's TV series "Dallas", about Texas oilmen. JR will certainly be keeping the oil industry going.

Here it is at the dealer in Socorro, NM. Looks clean, eh?

Big smile from the captain's chair.

Heading home to the Magdalenas. Still looks clean, eh?

Uh-oh, here we are at home. It was a warm day and what is left of the snow is melting leaving the dirt roads muddy.

The happy couple in their new truck. Don't they look sweet?

Here is a picture of Pam by the monster. Maybe next I'll buy an elevator for her.
