car drama

The coolant reservoir is sitting in the driver’s seat of the car. A screw apparently popped loose and rashed through the bottom. Roy is out hunting down a new one as I type. This may turn out to be the last of the car drama…at least I hope it is.

Woke up in the middle of the night to a thunderstorm with lightning, winds, driving rain, the works. Been a long time since I’ve been able to lay back and listen to all of that. What made it better was being able to roll over and go back to sleep! We’ve come smack into the middle of spring down here. Both of us have been sneezing more and more. Now I’m starting to realize just how dry the west really is (and that I like it dry).

Back to car: we’ve been having a running discussion on what would be an ideal vehicle. When we’re at home, we don’t do much driving in town, but when we do use the car, we abuse the daylights out of it with the towing, the hauling of lumber, lugging of furniture, wandering off the beaten path. Whatever it is, it would have to be tough.

Maybe a scooter for local transportation?

  1. I think the best car for you guys would be a city car share membership on the day they add beater pickups and box trucks to their fleet. (Not out of the question in SF!) For that matter, it’s probably the best car for me, too – I only ever drive to the airport and the hardware store anymore.

    Perhaps it would be possible to rustle up enough like-minded people to collectively own such a thing.
