…and I finally have a chance to log in to the website.
We were headed from St Louis to near Franklin, NC. Day before yesterday, in Nashville (about 9:30, rainy and slick) we got in a wreck. Our 15 passenger van was totalled. Fortunately we were near a motel and were able to drive there and get a room. Yesterday, knowing that van was basically done for, we decided to see how far it would take us before it totally died… it ended up being about 10 or 15 miles.
Thanks to the hard work of some friends, we were able to rent a van (Enterprise really does pick you up 🙂 ) we were able to get back on the road in another 15 passenger van about 4:00pm. We managed to finish our drive to NC last night, and reached our destinationat around 2:00 in the morning.
This afternoon, I returned the van back to Enterprise and we are now staying with Laurel’s folks, and minus a way to get back home….
Anyway, that’s the scoop on our excitement. I’ll update as needed, but we still plan to be back on the 8th of November.
