We needed 2 vans for the blogging school, one for camping trips and one for the temporary taxi/Uber/Able Ride & Scat Bus [a local disability bus service]. I’ll be the driver to take friends to blogging school or take them for Boys Night Out on Tuesdays but then I’ll drive them home afterwards.
During the first week we went to the Toyota and Lincoln Dealership to check out the SUVs with 7 to 8 seats. At the Toyota Dealer we checked out the Highlander and it was a interesting SUV which I thought it was too big when I first got in at the showcase room. The whole group went into the SUV and it was wonderful having the whole group there. I always imagine myself taking the wheel when I go to the showroom because I always think of going on the road. As soon as we plan on leaving the dealer, it snowed for a short period of time which ended up in flurries. Then we went to the Lincoln Dealership and saw the beautiful sunset. We went to the Dealership to check out the Navigator, and it was too big, but very comfortable on the other hand. We checked out the showcase room which was a world of giant SUVs. Victoria took a picture of the whole group in the same SUV but it was also nice to see the workers at the dealership to promote advertisements for Autisticana.
The next week, we went to Smith Haven Jeep Dodge and Ram Dealership to test drive the Dodge Durango. Back then, I always heard it on 106.1 BLI during the commercial breaks. Christine and I each drove around the area which was challenging, but it was worth it driving around the town of Smithtown. Then we went to the office and thanked the guy who helped us on getting the SUV but I also offered the staff about our company. The final decision is that we took the Dodge Durango but it would take time to go get the purchase of the vehicle. Later, during the summer months, we’ll be taking the road with this vehicle while planning on using the camping van to go cross camping around the State.
