This is a picture of the ruins of Urquhart Castle on the shores of Loch Ness in the highlands of Scotland. I’ll let the picture speak for itself.

We have a new truck. It’s a 2007 Dodge Ram SLT 4×4 truck. It’s a beauty. And yes it has a Hemi. 5.7 Litre Hemi. 345 horse 390 lbs of torqe. It scoots! I’ve never owned a truck with so much get up and go. And comfortable to drive, it’s a dream.

It has the Multi Displacement Engine that shuts off 4 cylinders during light freeway driving which gives us about 20-22 mpg on the freeway. One interesting thing I found was that if you don’t hold the key long enough to start the truck the computer takes over and keeps the starter going till the truck starts. It’s kind of sureal. Then it uses compression braking to slow the truck when the cruise control is on. Which is pretty cool.

Only down side is that if you’re in the rain, well, you better only use the first 1/3 of the gas pedal. It’s either that or prepare to do a loop de do.  (-;

Actually, I’ve been told that it’s NOT our truck. It’s Roberta’s truck and she will let me drive it on occassion if I’m good.

While waiting for Roberta and the girls to get here with our new truck Lynn and Chuck let me borrow their 55 Chevy Wagon to drive around. I get a lot of comments and looks. It’s a sweet ride.
