Road Reality is One Year Old Today!

It’s been a great first year for Road Reality, so I’d like to take a minute or three to share some of the highlights of the past year.  At the same time, I’d like to thank you, my readers, for your continued input, suggestions, and of course questions.  Without you, it wouldn’t be nearly as rewarding to run this site!

Review of the 2010 Ford F-150

In the past year, I’ve moved the site from its original WordPress location to a paid hosting provider, reviewed several vehicles and test drove a bunch more, received a ton of email from readers, and with MaximumPhil’s own Owner’s Log entries, the Road Reality community is growing!  If you’d like to join the Owner’s Log program, please contact me.
