Well, I was supposed to go camping this weekend. Guess where I am right now.... at home.
Friday we were getting ready to leave. I got the tank filled up in my van, and Rob was getting some Midori for drinks while camping... but... when I tried to backup from the parking spot I was in, and my transmission locked up. No more reverse. Tried putting it in neutral and pushing it out. That didn't work. Tried getting mutiple opinions from those people going in and out of the liquor store we'd just bought Midori from... even the girl and guy that worked there came out to try and give us some advice.
The van was all packed up, it was hot, we were sweaty because we didn't have the A/C on because what's the point of leaving the car on just to let it run the A/C?
Finally, we had to get a tow truck to bring one of those flat-bed trucks to carry the van home. You should have heard the scraping sounds as the chains pulled my van up on to the platform. It was awful!
Anyway... not sure what I can do about it now. Just have to wait till payday, or maybe next payday to get it fixed. In the meantime, we still have Rob's car, and I can always take the bus.
So I'm going now. Just thought I'd update you so you know why I'll be bummed out for a little while. :o)
