Today is National Name Your Car Day. To celebrate this little known holiday, I wanted to introduce you to Jackson, he’s my little four wheel drive truck.
Jackson is my first and only vehicle. How is that for commitment? I got Jackson from my parents when I was a newly licensed driver in high school. I remember watching it pull into the driveway a few minutes before I had to go to school. That was a miserably long day!
Jackson stood for freedom, independence and driving down country roads with the windows down and the music blaring. He began my slow journey into adulthood and responsibility.
Nearly a decade and 250,000 miles have gone by. He has carried me through laughter, tears, trips and heartache. We have been through quite a bit together; wrecks, bumps and bruises, getting stuck in slippery places. However, we have always managed to pull through. Though we both have a bit more wear and tear a decade later, those scratches and dings tell quite the story.
Does your vehicle have a name and a story?
Until next time…
