I took a couple of weeks off to spend time with the family, first camping and then renting a cottage in Muskoka. There are five of us, two tents, a cooler, several sleeping bags, a BBQ and, well, everything else. To borrow a line from Martin Brody, we're going to need a bigger car.
GM Canada came through with a bigger car. Except it's not just big, it's absolutely humongous. The GMC Yukon XL has seats for nine and a mind-boggling amount of space in the trunk. Here's the little guy for scale.
I had come from a Mazda Protege, so it took me a little time to adapt to my new size, but in no time I forgot I was driving a small bus. It was a quiet, smooth ride to Sandbanks, and its 5.3L V8 EcoTec3 engine was a welcome change.
What a great week!
