Letting the truck sit

Who else is letting thier trucks sit?

I've probably driven it 250 miles this month. and 220 of that was to the deer lease and back.

Saving over $300 a month by riding the motorcycle.

$16 a week versus $135 a week just to and from work.

Mine too. I drove it to South Padre about 3 weeks ago to go fishing, other than that it just sits. Im lucky, the wife and I work at the same place so we drive her explorer. We really dont save alot though, the explorer dosnt get but a mile or two better than the truck.
