    Default Re: Fishing Vehicle

    up till a bit over 2 years ago I had a 95 Grand Cherokee Orivs edition... little did I know at the time that 2 years after I got rid of it for cost issues, I would get into fly fishing and only now figuring out the orvis connection.. it even had a fly fishermen imprint on the leather.. wish I still had it,, but dont miss feeding it. I sunk to a van. hope to change that soon...

    Right now for me it is a 2000 GMC Sonoma 4x4 with an extended cab, I'v had it since 2004 and love that truck, even with its bumps and bruises, and maybe a little rust from the lovely salted michigan roads (it just builds character is the way i figure it). But ill drive that until it dies, love that little truck.

    I don't know if I'm more jealous of the nice outfit you have or the fact that your wife fishes with you I outfitted my wife in 2010 and took her on one 3 day trip and that was the end of it; too many mice in the camp I think

    Whatever is setting in the driveway these days, but one from the past comes to mind with pleasant memories.

    A brown 1976 Ford Pinto station wagon.
    Bought it new as a family car in '76 and it turned out to be one of those like the Energizer Bunny - kept going & going.
    Long after we had a new family car and I had my work truck in the driveway I still kept getting in that old Pinto for my hunting & fishing adventures. It was one of the few that didn't rust out like so many did, and the little 4 cylinder engine was a good match for power for the vehicle size and even after a new (Champion) spark plug fell apart & scored the cylinder walls on one cylinder making it essentially a 3 cylinder engine (it lost some compression & power, but kept running) it still got me there & back for 3 or 4 years.
    I finally sold it to someone that couldn't afford a nice looking car but needed dependable transportation.
    That old Pinto would go anywhere my truck would go (2wd truck), and when the snow season hit all I had to do was add a couple hundred pounds weight in the back and it went right on!

    Here's mine. The only problem is, I got to be sure to park far enough away from the water so as not to scare the bejeezus out of the fish.

    I've had two minivans that I converted into campers. They weren't quite ideal but they were close.
    If I could afford the MPG, one of these would be better

    From the looks of the cab, I am guessing it was once an old Ford pickup. Kind of cool, but what an eyesore parked in someone's driveway! I certainly wouldn't want one in my neighborhood.

    I love the idea of an E350 4WD van, but by the time you got one, and had to feed that monster, one would be just as a well off getting a 3/4 ton 4x4 truck with a camper. In my head, that's probably the best solution of all. At least you'd have some amenities and some comfort. Still, travelling light is probably the way to go.

    Holy Carp, I just thought of something... Here is the all-time greatest fishing vehicle in the world!
