I drive a Volvo sedan. That’s not the funny part. One reason we bought it was because of all the stuff it can hold. I’ve put a tent, camping gear and food for three people for four days plus bikes and toys in the car. We once drove to Holland (from Germany, not Hawaii) with five people, their luggage, Christmas presents AND a vacuum cleaner in the car. Just a few weeks ago I had two kids, four dining room chairs, two recycling bins, terrarium supplies and lunch for four in the Volvo — with trunk and all doors firmly shut and everyone buckled in safe and sound.
What I couldn’t fit in either the front seat, the back seats or the trunk was our 27 inch tube TV in it’s original packaging.
Darn. It’s my goal in life to prove that one need not own a truck or SUV to carry things, and here I was in the position of having to have to ask my neighbor if I could borrow her SUV.
That is, until I had the epiphany that I just might be able to fit the TV in our “smaller” car!
Minis — they’re a lot bigger than they look!
