So Noah and I have been talking about how we will need a 4X4 vehicle so we can get out to some parts of this island you can only access via sand-driving! There are some really neat parts of this island with no houses and excellent surf casting and great isolated beaches. There was no way we were gonna live out here without being able to get to these cool places - beach driving - it's crazy!!
Then, a week before Noah came out here my friend Jess and I spotted this fantastic, beautiful shiny blue Toyota Land Cruiser parked across the street from my apartment with a "For Sale" sign on it - perfect! To top it off, the car had Michigan license plates and it just it such a cool looking car! Luckily Noah agreed it was cool - we took a test drive and now it belongs to us! We are the proud owners of a 1986 Toyota Land Cruiser, completely redone, with a brand new stereo system complete with iPod jack (we're convinced that the stereo system is worth more than the car. But just look at this thing - have you ever seen a cooler car that will drive on sand? It certainly looks better to us than any modern Escalade or Jeep or other SUV-thingy - it's definitely an old style beach car :)
So anyone who comes to visit us - we'll take you on a tour out to Great Point - it'll be worth it! (You know you're jealous!)
