I think I was born to be a minivan guy. I love driving it. I love that they call it the Swagger Wagon . I sometimes wish it was a bigger, real van . Not a 'mini'. Nat, on the other hand, is counting down the days until she can downsize into something smaller, more SUV-ish that is easier to handle (and park). Once we get into all boosters and don't have the need for the massive double stroller, I think we can move off the mini-van everyday routine. But, I think I'll keep it! And use it as my primary car. That's why I put on some sweet new tires - 80K tires. I roll hard. I don't drive my car very much - to the grocery store or to Menards, so it gets light use. But, when we go somewhere as a family, we take the minivan. And...it feels to me like the van is like a space shuttle. Has so many controls and is so comfortable. I love driving it and having the space. It gets just ok gas mileage, but makes up for it in the way it handles and drives.

We were in Magic Kingdom recently and on our way out one morning, we saw this 2 horse coach charging right up Main Street USA. This is a vehicle that we had never seen before. And a few quick searches on the Googles, I think I've discovered that it is a rare sight? I've written in the past about meeting the Main Street USA Characters. The latest of those posts featuring Bea Starr - who is the Chairwoman of the Main Street USA Thespian Society - is here from earlier this year . But this is the first time, I think, I've written about the vehicles of Main Street USA. Turns out, it is a pretty common topic for various Disney World outlets to cover. Here's Touring Plans page . Here's MousePlanet's vehicle page . Just peek at this wiki listing of various Main Street USA vehicles . They even have photos. The horse-drawn vehicles in that post and in the official Disney World posting about Main Street USA vehicles show the usual horse-drawn trolley
