them on lots. It's hard to find a manual transmission sometimes
(which is what I want) but there are plenty of CRVs, RAV4s, and
every other model at Classic Honda/Toyota in Round Rock and Jeeps at
Champion on 183 & Lamar. Actually I have my eye on a Hyundai Tucson
but haven't driven one yet. It gets better mileage than the others
and is a little cheaper than everything I've looked at except the
Rav4. Anyone have experience with a Tucson (or any other Hyundai)?

- The only correct answer is what I drive, a Land Rover Defender 90. They are the perfect vehicle for getting into disaster areas. Oh, you wanted something that got decent gas milage? Forget my suggestion then. :) Here's a pic of our Land Rovers making our aid trip to Louisiana a couple weeks ago. Mine's on the right.
I'd also like to publicly thank those that donated goods for our trip. I know I thanked you all personally.
For those that didn't see it, here's a full trip report. http://nnin.net/?p=348
- Actually I wouldn't mind a Land Rover at all, but my budget says
NO! Maybe next time! Now it's down to either a Toyota RAV4 or a

You should hook up with my club sometime to head up north to Barnwell Mountain for some good old-fashioned offroading. Us Landie owners won't look down on you too much. ;)
