Ok, I have to admit, I’m a bit excited. Feeling a little guilty about it – after all, it’s just vehicle – but nonetheless, I wish the darn thing were here already.

I’ve been waiting a month and a half. I take delivery on Tuesday.

Because my brother (who really spoils me, quite undeservedly I might add) will be taking my current vehicle, I’ve got it all cleaned up and as a result will be attempting to stay close to home this weekend so that it stays that way. No camping and no doggie swimming trips (unless she gives me those ‘eyes’.)

The new one is a 4×4 with a green rating of 68. 25 mpg city/29 highway. Those numbers more than double what I’m currently getting in the city – and very decently increases my highway mileage. I currently drive a Grand Cherokee.

My new vehicle is the only non-hybrid SUV 4×4 on the Top 100 Green Cars list. Well, not quite true, I guess – it has a ‘sister’ version for the soccer mom set – which is essentially the same vehicle with a different body style. But ‘my’ vehicle sits higher on the list.

I go off-roading, so having a 4×4 is a necessity for me. I know that might sound obnoxious to some. And while I’m only a one-dog woman right now, they’ll be another one joining the household when I’m ready. My first trip is already planned – a return to Monument Valley for some rock climbing with the red geolithic giants in southern Utah.
