    Thanks. I'm going to keep that as a momento of our time together.

    Of course. . .

    My husband wants an H2 Hummer to go with his work humvee and Abrams M1-A1 tank. . .



    Now, thats an SUV! We saw one the other day, they are pretty sweet. I guess opposites attract- me with my Mini and my husband with his H2.

    Jeep!!

    I'll use a photo of my Jeep in my driveway. Driveway photos of Jeeps are a cardinal sin, but it's the only digital one I have.

    Friends, I think I found the pinnacles in RUGGED!ness.

    It's big.

    It's long.

    It scares women.

    It's the Australian road train.



    The ultimate status symbols in The Town Next Door include the Chevrolet Bruin Fleetside ...



    ... and the Ford F-650 Super Crewzer.





    Back in Denver, the Washington Park yups were begging for Unimogs.



    Civilian Pinzgauers were quite common in Denver.



    Still, nothing screams "affluent Coloradoan" like the Kenworth Pilgrimage.

    I dare anyone here to use an avatar picturing a shiny new Hindustan Ambassador for an entire week.



    I'm also begging some good planner, in the name of equal time, to use the logo of a bicycle company or public transit agency for their avatar.

    I still ride my Haro mountain bike that I bought 13 years ago. I think I'll buy a new one in the spring, now that I am no longer in school.

    Slightly OT...

    It seems a lot of people on this board ride mountain bikes. Being fairly new to the 'sport' I've been under the impression that Trek, Gary Fisher and Specialized made the the top of the line bikes. Now I'm getting the feeling that there is a class of bike way above Fisher, et al... True?
