TWO trips, yours sounds even more interesting! We might have given up and returned later, but it was 5hrs away, both had work the next day (after getting to bed past 3:30am we both called in sick *shrugs*) we would have had to wait two weeks before returning. It was Do-or-Die...
I left much of the trip out of the thread thinking no one would really care and it might bore them, like the Nice Auto Zone guy who basically gave us some stuff trying to help make the dang lights work. Or the Guy at Stucky's (or was it Lov's? We stopped EVERYWHERE) who took pity and worked on the connections, crawled on the ground trying to help us. He let us know we could park overnight and sleep in the trailer, but dont stay longer than 3days or we would be towed.
Or how about the first time I have ever seen my man (almost) give up on me, telling me "I'm done" and me being a big meanie saying, "we are not home yet, it is not done, you don't get to stop yet. You DON't GET TO TO DONE yet" or about him being so wiped out that he fell asleep in the passenger side me driving (1st time in 30yrs with someone else driving he has done that). He woke up to me white knuckling it, driving through in the snow globe winter snowfreaking wonderland, following the salt trucks so I would know where the dang road was. I hate feeling helpless or unable to do something and that trip almost defeated me.
I want to hear your story please, so cough it up... (gonna go look to see if you posted it elsewhere already!)
