Truckless

It's kind of weird not having my truck anymore. Like having my wisdom teeth, appendix, or tonsils out. Or any body part you don't really need but are just used to having.

I don't miss $75/fillup for gas. Don't miss the automatic transmission (the Civvy is more fun to drive than I'd expected). Don't miss parking a beast. But I still have the fantasy of having a rusted out pickup sitting in the tall grass in front of my country home some day; just waiting for word of cool stuff by the side of the road for me to drag home and rewire/shoot/blow up.

Not really sure where I'm going these days. Being online less hasn't made me much more productive. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, but I'm tired of feeling useless.

Still looking to the future.
