Truck Porn: My new Tundra

Americans and our trucks. We're quite the pair.

I am someone who thinks continuing to burn oil as we are is a very, very bad thing for our planet. And yet . . . here I am with a new gas-guzzling truck and I am pretty stoked about it. I may not be quite as thrilled when fuel prices spike again, but I'll deal with that when it happens--as it surely will.

I bought the VW TDI (diesel) in 2013 precisely because I wanted to lighten my environmental footprint and save on fuel. The TDI is a fuel sipper and I've loved it. But for those of you who haven't heard (which includes more people than I would think) the VW didn't turn out to be the clean diesel it was billed to be. Read more about that here if you don't know the story.

Last night I had fun driving with my puppy (he's almost 13) and taking some photos of my new-to-me 2013 Toyota Tundra, built to suck fuel.

I can't wait to pull my new Airstream with it!
