2014 Chevy Silverado: Hauls Mulch

September 11, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

There's an old saying: If you own a pickup truck you're never lonely. Or something like that. Owning a truck makes you everyone's best friend. You're the guy that helps them move. The guy that hauls their old couch. The guy that hauls their load of mulch.

And so it was. We drove 325 miles from L.A. to San Jose to see my brother-in-law's new baby boy. We pulled into his driveway, baby toys in hand, and the next thing I knew the two of us and the Edmunds long-term Chevy Silverado are off to the House of Mulch.

"Congratulations on the new baby."

"Thanks. Cool, you drove up in a truck. Mind if you and I go and get some mulch?"

"Um, sure."

The Silverado's 5.5-foot bed took three full buckets of mulch from that big bad loader in the photo. No problem. And the weight in the bed certainly smoothed out the ride.

After the mulch was migrated to the backyard the old fashioned way I figured it was time to crack a cold one and visit my new nephew. Nope.

"Hey, if you have the time, I need to get some old bricks and pavers out of the backyard. Cool?"

Cool. But that's another story for another day.
