    Hi,
    I've been a mostly a dodge truck guy for the past 2 decades. I still like the truck but wanted an SUV that I could enjoy on outdoor adventures. I've had a camper shell that works fine, but am not in a need for a full size truck with as much ego as my younger days.
    Bought my 4Runner in PA and did a road trip through DC, NYC, BOS, NH, back down to VA beach, then west through Yellow Stone WY, through OR, WA, up through Canada and ending in AK. 8300 mi and a 5K service later, I'm still super happy with it.

    Added Mega Man for additional interior security in NYC (Note, does not like the heat) mega man.jpg
    Stopped up the top of MT Washington, NH. What a great view!

    Fast forward half a country, camped out in yellow stone for a couple days. Man what a cool experience!

    I love the color blue of your 4Runner. The FJ Cruiser had a similar color for the trail model in its last year's and I always loved it.

    Thanks Michael. You wouldn’t believe the difficulty I went through finding this. I have been looking at this color since 2017. I got nowhere after calling 10+ dealers in New England all with empty promises. I sent out an email blast on the east coast and got a call from a dealer in PA. I immediately put a hold on it and drove over the next day.

    nice rig!

    Welcome aboard.

    I completely understand the dealership issue here in New England. I eventually opted for a 2015 white Pro. The mileage and price were right, so I stopped waiting for the cavalry blue. I'm loving my new ride.

    nice pics from your trip.
