Pulled the Trigger
I finally pulled the trigger and bought a tow vehicle. It’s an old 2004 four door Chevy Blazer. Considering my limited budget I think I did fairly well. The original owner had paid for good undercoating so it’s not rusty. That’s a big deal in the land of winter road salt.
It has about 100,000 miles on it, but it’s been well maintained. The previous owner and I use the same mechanic. Another big thing, at least for me, is that it has a tow package and good roof racks. Having four wheel drive doesn’t hurt either.
There was no one in line at town hall so it took about fifteen minutes to register it and get new plates. The insurance office had me set up in about ten minutes. The new title will arrive in the mail. What it needs next is to pass the state inspection. While it has a current sticker, it sat for months after the owner lost his license. My mechanic is going to go over everything and make sure it’s fine. Yes, I have a mechanic I trust to do that without over charging me or making unnecessary work. I drove it about fifteen miles to get it home and nothing bad happened.
The Blazer is more than capable of towing my sailboat, and that’s what it’s all about.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
