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! It’s 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:)
No, I am not Bear Grylls, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night and Bear was there too!

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="" />
