I needed a bigger vehicle. Given my work with Boy Scouts, I spend considerable time on the road, hauling boys and their camping gear.
I wanted something big enough to comfortably contain eight or nine people and capably transport a trailer of supplies. I also wanted something that was reliable, well-maintained and a good value. I knew it'd take some time. Decently priced used vehicles like that don't become available every day, and they typically sell within hours of being advertised. But after a few months of searching craigslist, I found a Chevy Suburban that fit my needs and requirements.
