Quote of the Day: If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right. Henry Ford Road Trips – Put Your Life in the Back and Go The thing with pick-up trucks is: you can throw your life in the back of them – so there are few better vehicles to use to take on a road trip. Of course, there’s plenty of room in the back for a tent – or plenty of power to tow an Airstream behind you if that’s what you want – but you don’t just have to settle for throwing down a couple of blankets on the flatbed anymore.
