Today Mrs. Parallel and I celebrated 30 years of married bliss. I had wanted to get her a new wedding band set but she found me out and put the kibosh on that. One of the things I fell in love with is that Mrs. Parallel is the opposite of high maintenance. Hell... she's been driving my Dad's 2005 highlander ever since he passed and any time I tried to discuss buying a new one she would point out that there's "nothing wrong with it."

So I finally came out and asked her what she wanted for an anniversary gift... a new Toyota 4Runner. Well Hell yeah!

I was hoping to get one in "Blizzard Pearl" paint (pearls being the traditional gift for 30th anniversary) but that apparently only comes in the "limited" which doesn't have the off road goodies that we wanted (crawl control, KBSS, ect.) so we went with the TRD Off Road. Before we take this on the muddy trails of South Louisiana we MUST get rid of the anemic tires at the very least.

So... we actually bought this weeks ago and I couldn't see allowing this milestone to pass without SOMETHING for her to unwrap. So...

Pearls are after all the traditional gift for a 30th wedding anniversary.

Congrats to both of you. But, you made a mistake buying a Toyota. You'll go broke buying all the cool shit that's available. #overland will set you back an easy $10k and then you'll come to terms there's still another $10k to spend. I'm married to my Tacoma.IMG_20190329_141404.jpg

I highly recommend anything with the word "Blizzard" in the name but looks like you did good! đź‘Ť

Congrats on 30 years!
