… And here it is, the new Schroedermobile.

It’s a 2006 not-gold Honda Odyssey, which we bought on Friday after a few hours of tooling around Denver looking at several. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it is to drive. Even though it’s still a lumbering beast compared to the small-car feel I like, it doesn’t feel terribly heavy or clunky (like the Toyota Sierra we test-drove).

Our first big test will be our road trip to Idaho in a few weeks. We made sure it satisfied all of our needs for long trips. Things like

The kids being… well, kids.

So everything seems like it’ll work fine. Woo hoo!
