You would had to have seen the shop before to know how much work Vince did getting it packed and cleaned. I’ll admit that I really didn’t think he could do it and fully expected him to pay someone to haul it all to the dump but he did it. I don’t know if he’ll ever recover!
He ended up finishing up loading everything he was bringing in the truck, doing the last minute things in the house and he was on the road by 9 a.m. He got to the Missouri house about 7 p.m. He made great time considering he stops more than I do and I drive the speed limit . . not even 1 mile over. It was horribly windy and with the truck being old, Vince didn’t always go the speed limit, especially in the 80 mph area.
He got here, sat down and decided he wanted to pick up Chinese food and bring it home. I wanted to call Door Dash but he insisted we drive down and get it. It’s probably not 5 miles from the house so we drove and picked it up. There’s a road I pass when I’m going the back way to get to Chad’s and I had a feeling it came out somewhere near the Chinese restaurant. I asked Vince if he knew where it ended up and he didn’t but we took it and it’s a road that will work if I need an alternate route to town. No scary bridges!
Vince said the truck drove fine! No problems. It got good gas mileage. The radio worked. He had music all the way. He’s happy . . his old truck, his old car and his old wife are here! 🙂
