I love driving an older vehicle. If you choose well you’ll be rewarded with cheap insurance, cheap repairs, and no worries about damage. Unfortunately, the down side is every once in awhile you’re inconvenienced. No matter, this gives me some time to catch up on some reading, writing, and sleeping. A forced rest isn’t so bad and even better when it’s only a minor inconvenience.
For my safety and the safety of others I did grab a tow truck from AAA. (Premium RV memberships are great.) Since I had a bit of a ways to go via tow truck I got to talk to the driver a bit. It’s always interesting to hear people’s stories. Turns out this guy used to live not to far from where I grew up! It’s a small world.
