I feel like a REAL “road-warrior” now…I’ve had my first mechanical failure!
Well…technically the van is not “broken-broken” (thats a bit of an exaggeration), but I stayed in Kentucky longer than I had planned due to my driver’s side window motor failing on me! I wish I could go back to the “crank” window right about now…crank it up to go up, crank it down to go down. Damn technology failure!
In the grand-scheme-of-things, it’s no big deal right?! Well, it just so happened that it failed when my window was completely down and then it rained for 2 days. Fortunately for KY, they needed the rain but unfortunately for me, it broke on a Saturday night and NOTHING was open on a Sunday in KY! So, I did what most people would do…I put a trash bag over my window and found a safe & quiet campground to hang out in for 2 days.
Thanks to the staff at the Ken Towery Mechanic shop in Lexington, they had me in and out in 4 hours. They even let my dog, Summer, hang out in the waiting room with me the whole time.
I’m back on the road…
