BTW, I LOVE my 1/2-ton shod with BFG All-Terrains.

It's a beast in deep snow and a capable tow vehicle.

Uhaul charges by the mile as well. I get mine from Enterprise (they rent trucks and box vans), like $49 / day with unlimited miles.

Maybe.

OK the shorter version of my way-too-long original post is:

If you're buying a truck, do you try to find one that also makes a good winter vehicle? Or do you go for a utilitarian beater?

Absolutely. Could also pay to have wood delivered and stacked.

I know.

I like doing things myself... but when it stars to cost more than having someone else do it for you it's just ridiculous.
