New Ride for Mrs. LMC

We traded in my bride's 1999 Lexus RX300 for the ultimate mommy machine: a Honda Odyssey. My wife swore years ago she would not be caught dead driving a minivan and was very happy with her SUV but it had 115,000 miles and was starting to show its age with dinges and other minor issues. The imminent arrival of our third kid in September and the fact that three car seats will not fit across the back seat of the ride made the switch to a minivan inevitable. The new conveyance has room inside for a passel of kids, all of their associated stuff, not to mention all the gear I insist on having whenever we roll (maps, tools, flares, work gloves, first aid kit, jumper cables, rope, and a large fire extinguisher). It could probably accomodate a crew-served weapon with only minor modifications as well.

Historickal Revisionism? Yips! from Robbo: Whoa there, pilgrim....Who lost the bet with Mrs. Robbo made all those years ago that he'd never be caught dead in a minivan?

Heh. Indeed.

BACK AT YOU YIPS: Yes, indeed, I lost the bet. I am afraid the gels will want a weekend to themselves which will cost me alot more than the $100 that was the consideration for the wager.

The question is whether to mount to weapon fore or aft. Better get two.

We recommend a swivel mount just aft the front seats. I preferred a TOW or Hellfire mount, while the Young Master opted for Ma Deuce. Unfortunately, the Missus had the Odyssey t-boned, so we never got it mounted. Maybe in the next van...

Ahh, Monica--truly a gal who believes in the Boy Scout motto. The Gripping Hand nailed it with Ma Deuce, the M2 heavy machine gun whose design has not changed a bit since the Second World War, if not the First. It is like running into one's high school girlfriend after decades and realize she has not changed a bit--lean, mean, and deadly.

Always wanted the Minivan - for all of the features which would enable me to live my Ward Cleaver rock 'n roll fantasy. I figured, if you gonna go the "Dad" route, don't stop half way.

My bride, however, put a quick stop to all that. Carried on like you thought I was trying to shove her into the burqa....
