Ordinarily I wouldn't agree to buying such an expensive toy, but I pondered it for awhile and here's the thing: those of you who know us well know that Jeff has driven the same truck for 25 years, (he still drives it when needed) then graduated to the 1973 VW Bug that Cass had used for driving around town before she left home, THEN we inherited back the 15 year old car that the kids had driven into the ground during their college years and he has taken to driving that. We usually only have one nice, reliable vehicle at a time, which he always lets me drive. So my point is, if he wants to buy an expensive toy, I think he's earned it. Besides, we live in an area where we can enjoy this a lot. We have gone on some pretty cool rides already, and we are just starting to learn of all the fun places and trails there are around here so it is something we can do together. We are at a time in our lives when we enjoy doing things together and this will be one of the things we can share.
