Well, what started out as a drive to the airport has turned into an ordeal. Vehicle broke down after getting gas (check engine light flashing uh oh). We’re on the outskirts of Lexington, got a hotel day room for DH and DD to get a few more hours of sleep. Flight already missed. So waiting for autoshops to open, see what the damage is. Then possibly rent a vehicle and drive if need be. Gonna be a long day.
Oh no!! This is awful!!
Oh no! I’m so sorry. Hope it’s a quick fix and you can be on your way soon.
I’m sorry for the rough start. I hope you’re on your way again asap…
What an awful start. Hope things turn around quickly and you are laughing about this soon.
Rough start for sure. Hope the worst is behind you and better things are ahead.
Waiting on a tow truck to get it into the shop 10 miles away. Hoping just a cylinder misfire and they have parts.
This happened to @QwertySC — an actual wheel came off her vehicle. But it all worked out in the end and she had a great trip.
Holy cow, wheel come off, I’d be scared to drive again. Hopefully we’ll make it late tonight or tomorrow. May call in a bit to make sure they don’t give room away. If this isn’t a 10k kinda expense lol
Faith and trust and pixie dust!
Some people are remembered for their contributions to the medical community or a great work of art.
I hope it’s an easy fix and you’re on your way soon!
Fingers crossed it isn’t a wrong gas in the wrong tanks situation with the gas station.
I hope all gets resolved soon!
Exactly my first thought given the timing.
I’m LOL’ing for posting the pictures with no follow up for the second!
I remember, but must be shocking for those who didn’t know/follow! Like…was it sabotage? Was the entire family in on it?!?
Stay tuned, dear readers….
Or do some follow up research, ya lazy bums!
(Because the kids are still in the Paddy-wagon somewhere!)
Oh! Didn’t we have one of those in another report too? Or am I remember an Amazing Race episode in years past?
I like to leave people guessing.
(AAA was useless and the awesome GA state troopers saved the day!)
Oh no! Fingers crossed everything gets resolved quickly!!!
I triple checked receipt first thing lol, correct gas. Bad ignition coil causing a misfire. The local Firestone center was able to get us repaired and back on the road now. We’ll be stopping somewhere south of Atlanta once sunsets, then back on the road to hopefully make it to Disney mid day Sunday. New experience for me: ubering around Georgetown KY. Actually very pretty and relaxing place we may have to PLAN a visit to sometime.
