Ode to the Truck

So something really exciting has happened around here as of late: we paid off Nate's truck. And it's kind of a big deal for us. So as such, I would like to make a tribute to said truck. There's no name for the truck or anything, or else this post would be titled "Ode to [name]" but since Nate's not really the kind of guy to name a thing, and because he wouldn't let me name it "Crawl the Warrior King" ($1.00 for anyone who can name that movie reference), this is just going to be an "Ode to the Truck."

Despite loathing forking over the monthly payment each month for the truck, it's actually been a really good truck for us. We've spent lots of weekends in it driving up to, and all around northern Arizona.

It's taken us on many adventures from fishing to camping, to hunting, to hiking, to watching fireworks on the 4th of July, to playing in the snow.

It's hauled quads, and boats, and kayaks (oh my)

It was even the first vehicle in which our dogs learned how to drive
I'm kidding, of course. Dogs can't drive vehicles because that would be unsafe and very dangerous. They mostly just hang out in the back, real talk:

Nate's truck has been both functional, and, well, functional. It's carried our whole family up to Sedona for our annual holiday trip, it's carried the dogs in the bed when the cab gets too full, it's gotten a little blood on it from time to time, and it's even made a heck of a bench for spontaneous happy hours
Ironically, both Duck Commander wines. But that's because we always stop at the Walmart in Payson and they're the only ones I've seen carry the Duck Commander wine so whenever I see it I just feel like I need to buy it. Then again, whenever I see wine in general I feel like I need to buy it sooooo...

Heck, it even fits all four of us should the occasion ever arise when the four of us need to be in the front cab of the truck...

The truck has celebrated the holidays with us, carrying numerous Christmas trees home with us and even managing to be part of our family Christmas photos
Truck cleans up nice eh?

Rain, snow, sleet (what's that, really?) sunshine or...mostly sunshine, the truck has been there and gotten us through it all

And now it's technically and legally ours.

Don't break down on us now, truck...I'm pretty sure all our warranties are expired so, I'm serious.

In hindsight, why I have so many pictures of Nate's truck, I have no idea. But it made for a good blog post right?
