Re: Responses for owning a 4x4 van???

I just thought of another good one. From San Diego we go to below Hoover Dam to kayak and camp in Black Canyon. Until just recently you had to thread your way across the dam to continue down to the Willow Beach and kayak upstream. So lots of tourists walking around. I caught one guy turn around from taking pictures of the dam superstructures / Lake Mead and take a picture of me as I tooled by.

From looks of disgust to thumbs up, I get it all. On my recent x-country trip, I must have seen over 100 cell phone cameras. And many many many questions, mostly crazy.

Re: Responses for owning a 4x4 van???

Always positive comments about my van.
Mine looks factory vs 'monster crawler' so most ask if Ford sells 4x4 vans.
And a wow factor if I open it up.
I enjoy the different from SMB approach. Looks more like a 'touring' van.
