Where I stayed

Sunday, December 21, 2008

Well today didn't start off very well. I got up to move the truck closer to my craptastic room so I could put my stuff and Bubba into the truck. Well my truck wouldn't start. So I called triple A and asked the desk clerk if I could stay a little longer and explained the situation. So the tow truck showed up and jumped the truck and gave me directions to a local garage. Well 321$ (thanks Michelle) I have a new alternator. I didn't get to leave Ohio until about 4 pm. I also found out when I stopped to check things that when the guy told me they were nice enough to top of my low anit-freeze that they over filled it. Not only that but that they knocked they tube off that is on there to suck up the anti-freeze. So I stuck a straw on there at the gas station and it seems fine. I just have to find a parts store tomorrow to get a piece of hose. So I didn't make it to ST. Louis today. I am in Terre Haute Indiana. I had dinner tonight at TGIF which consisted of a much needed beer and deep fried green beans. My room tonight is much better. there are no creepy doors or patched wallpaper. And best of all there are no strangers pubes in the tub.The other good news is that I found two twelve packs of my orange soda tonight. I paid through the nose but I got them. I hope to make the last 150 miles to St. Louis tomorrow with enough time to see the arch and get some dinner.  That's all for tonight. I gotta look up some other stuff and get some sleep.

Terre haute
I was in Terre Haute once. I think I was 14 years old and I was with my then-best friend and her father. We were travelling across the country, camping almost the whole way. It was great!!!! I think I ate in a Pizza Hut. That was a real thrill. Hope things stay smooth from here on.

AAAaaahhhhhhh. Craziness. My car is now fine. I think they are taking turns!! Glad you found the orange soda. Nothing like wanting something comforting and not finding it!! And I do hope you are not having the weather we are. We bookended the weekend with 2 snow storms. I think I have 10-12 inches of snow so far. And the day ain't over! Good luck and have fun in St. Louis.
