    [quote]Actually, a lot of really hard core 4x4ers like the Suzuki Sidekick which is technically an SUV... but yeah, the vast majority of us ditch-jumping offroad types have trucks.<hr></blockquote>



    There are certainly plenty of people who really do use SUVs for their actual functional advantages. I exaggerate of course, that is colanders do you see. I would imagine that this make be even more true in rural Canada, if that be where you at, than it is in the US, even in Utah and Colorado and some of the places where that sort of thing is more popular than here in WA. But there are a zillion times more who don't.

    The "T.O.D" is a '97 Ranger with a 4L V6.

    What if you realize we have nothing to talk about and we're no where near a football game? Are the nacho stands in the snow?

    Well, I wouldn't exactly call downtown Vancouver rural Canada...



    Actually, the more rural you get the higher the raw % of trucks on the road period is, not just off road. Turns out that the extra 20K or so for the SUV is too much for rural folk who usually need a truck around the house, anyways.

    yah, same here (boston), though it was more slurry/rain/snow/etc. if it wasn't for my midterm, i would have gladly stayed home. i'm originally from california, and the way i see it, places with snow are nice to visit, but not so nice to actually *live* there.</strong><hr></blockquote>



    Nice to see that there are so many New Englanders on this message board.



    I for one grew up around here (in Central Mass) and have lived in this general area my whole life, and I don't think I'd trade it for anything. I love getting a solid sample of each and every type of weather. Only in New England can it be in the 90s one week, the next week be greeted by fall foliage in all it's splendor, and the next week be surprised to see snow flakes falling.



    Also, where else besides New England do people who are VERY used to bad weather always count on an inch of snow getting their commitments for the day cancelled?



    I love New England.

    No. But you can melt the snow and drink it. Unless it is pink. We could always stop at a 7-11 and get some nachos. I think there is a 7-11 everywhere so one should be easy to find.



    You wouldn't be able to talk anyway. You would just freeze your ass off as a Los Angelian and thus your teeth would be chattering and you would be unable to move or talk or do anything. So I could just talk out loud to the voices in my head without having to worry about interrupting the conversation.



    I had a 97 Rangers, red. I'll post a nice little pictures on the other sites. Mine was the weak engine though, 4V 2.3 I believe it was.

    As an American, I am by nature stupid you see, therefore I did not look at your profile which would have told me where in Canada you live. I'm not one of the brighter utensils in the kitchen I must admit.



    Yep trucks are more popular in rural areas. Except in Texas where they are mandated by law.

    as jack says, i like the *idea* of snow, but not actual snow. while i do enjoy seeing seasons change out here, being in boston means fall foliage is the handful of trees in the parks, and snow turns to icky gray slush pretty quickly. thats the problem with living in this city. that, and the fact that i'm a wimp when it comes to cold weather.

    the only problem with that is that BC hasn't had a weather related canceling in something like 30 years.... <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

    yah, same with BU. they won't cancel classes for *anything*. it could be a blizzard, and they'd still tell you to come to school. and absences really mean something here!

    Heh. Funny how that works. Up here the whole city of Vancouver (including both universities) has, on occasion, shut down for 3cm of snow. Basically, nobody has any idea what to do with the white stuff.
