martinfocazio,

You only have to wait a few more years. When GM puts the diesel back in the Suburban in 2008 (I'm buying one of them) the next thing they are doing with diesels is trying out a hybrid diesel. Figure atleast 30mpg in a full sized 3/4 ton truck. <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

"A diesel/electric hybrid pickup truck (does not exist, would like to have one anyway) "
There is at least one driving around my town! And a SUV as well! Itís a research vehicle for the engineering dept.

Actually I think I have way too much stuff already! What is on my wish list is to get the Izuzu Trooper I bought to run properly! I have a new 4WD Trailblazer and I bought the Trooper as a second vehicle I can cruise to more hazardous places with, without dinging up the Chevy. I paid cash for the Trooper, so no pain there. I think it has a blown head gasket or needs a valve job. It only has 56K miles on it, so otherwise is a great vehicle. The problem really is that there are no cheap fixes for that DOHC, 3.5 liter engine. No way that I would try to change the head gasket, I would surely get the cams out of timing and finish the thing off completely!
So, I want my Trooper fixed before the nice weather here in Arizona:)

Aside from world peace, I'd also like REI and EMS to start carrying more items that aren't made of plastic, and Trangia alcohol stoves.

And I want Filson to start making their clothes in black so I can wear them in the city, and Duluth Pack to use other colors besides olive drab. How about some more outdoor clothing in Ventile cotton?

I'd also like a Brunton GEO Transit. And Fujinon 7x50 marine binoculars.


Oh...and a pony.

Great book(s). Besides Colin Fletcher's wit and sense of humor, lot's of outdoor knowledge to share.

Last year, for my 50th birthday, I created a web page, listing all the things I wanted ...each friend/parent I invited at one of the several dinners I organised, had to visit that page, choose a gift and give his share...some items on my wish list got enough "donations" to be bought...a good amount was spread on various gifts.


Frenchy, I do admire your style...a unique approach, and who can argue with the results? <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
