2008 Buick Enclave: Hauling Nuts

November 19, 2007

As Nut Mom for Girl Scout Brownie Troop 421,I was tasked with picking up the entire troop'sfall fundraiser order from the local Long Beach, Calif. warehouse.

Usually minivans are my first choice for transporting cases of Girl Scout goodies, but since our trusty Kia Sedona left the long-term fleet in July we've been minivan-free, sothis time Iturned to our new 2008 Buick Enclave instead.

With just the third-row seats folded down, the Enclave had no problem swallowing 588 cans of nuts shrink-wrapped into 49 cases. And best of all, thecargo floorheight was perfect for my 5'7" nutty self toload all of the cases into the Enclave during my assigned 8:36-8:40 a.m... (four minutes?!) pick-up window.

The Girl Scout Council of Greater Long Beach sure runs a tight ship.
