Priscilla, our beloved 1996 Landcruiser, has been a part of our family for 5 years now. Bought locally in Albuquerque, she underwent a transformation from town car to overland vehicle, as Mike spent countless hours preparing her for our South/Central America trip.
Priscilla became not just a car to us, she represented so much more. She was our home for two years; our mode of transport, our bedroom, our kitchen, our living area, but most of all our anchor. She kept us safe, and took us places that most other vehicles could not go. She was our place of comfort, the familiar in an outside world that was always changing and throwing challenges our way. We knew we could always rely on her.
Once we returned to the USA, she continued to be the centering element to our lives. When the regular world got too much, we could always jump in Priscilla and hit the road for an adventure. All our personas would change as we set off on adventures in Priscilla. This sense of happiness, contentment and love of life would fill us. She also represented for us an alternate life that we could take whenever we wanted too. We would often look at each other in hard times and say"we could just pack up Priscilla and go". We almost did on several occasions. So I guess she was also our life raft.
Weird but it felt like Priscilla had a soul!! That she was a real member of our family.
So selling her was really hard for us. And there were a few tears shed. The upside is that she is going to an amazing family, who have many adventures planned in her.
Priscilla will be living in Boulder Colorado with her new family.
We are so happy that Priscilla will continue her life of adventure and hopefully represent to another family all she was to us.
Priscilla was truly a part of our family and she will be missed.
