Pennies don’t justify such a large expenditure of your hard-earned money.

I can’t think of a time I didn’t thrill to the sound of this Cummins turning over. I barely drive it these days (home once monthly), maybe 1000k miles last year. Doesn’t matter. There’s a lot wrapped into that sound (free-er flowing but stock-quiet).


I can ease off the clutch and get halfway across the continent on a tank.

Flatten every hill & mountain with 2k plus in the bed.

I don’t like these present circumstances of mine, I can quit the job, hitch the house and be on the road less than two hours after flipping off the boss.

As above, the more you like it (will keep it) the better off you are.

Fewer cars in a lifetime is ECONOMY. Mastery of the use of that vehicle is the reward.
