VLOG 45 – It’s Truck Time

VLOG 45: This episode… Fireballs gets the new 2015 Chevy Silverado and the Bullet comes to life.



Fireball cruises the 2013 CHEVY SILVERADO: Review


Have you ever had a truck? Seems like a pretty straight forward question…, but unless you’ve actually owned one, it’s hard to imagine just what it feels like to live a life that requires one.

Sure, the gas mileage isn’t so good as a Prius, but hauling wood around in a Prius would be… weird. (Although I have seen people do it.) But a truck is a truck for a reason. It’s practical for all the purposes you’d think, but there are a few that you might find surprising. And that’s what I felt after I drove this 2013 CHEVY SILVERADO Crew Cab 4WD for a week.


I don’t haul wood. I don’t carry sheep. I don’t lay sand bags or have an ATV. But what I do like to do is have fun. And I do A LOT of that. In a world of “green,” it seems strange to buy a big truck, but if you go a bit deeper into your mind, you’ll see that your world isn’t necessarily supposed to be practical. You’re actually supposed to LIVE. And to live… means to bring JOY.

JOY is achieved not by doing things, but by BEING a certain way. Looking at the world in a certain way. You could say that if you live IN joy, more joy comes. And in a funny sort of beefy way, that’s exactly what this 5.3L V8 Vortec’d beast does.

It keeps you in a state of joy for a number of reasons. Because it’s high, you can see the world and not be buried in it. It seats 5 comfortably for long hauls to bring friends. And, because it’s a truck, you can stop, pop a squat and enjoy the view from your own private deck. A deck big enough for two massive CockerPoos, in my case.

There are only a few things we REALLY want in life. Love, Joy, Peace, Health, Prosperity. And this is the kind of vehicle that helps you find it. It’s a 315hp/ 335lb.ft torque vehicle of ACTION. …A tool you use, not to do things… but to BE something.



I can’t say that about a Prius, but of course it has its purpose also. But the 2013 CHEVY SILVERADO just makes you feel present and slightly “floated” above the world. Shifting your perspective about what’s possible for the day… as opposed to what you may HAVE to do.

It can also haul anything at about 1600lbs, so I’ll be heading to the nearest SEE’S Candy store soon…

This week’s ride? The massively cool Chevy Silverado. I’ll be toolin’ this puppy out to the book signing this weekend at Autobooks, filling the back as a swimming pool!

No, not really. But that would be cool. NEW 5 MINUTE DRIVE, THOUGH!! Cha.
