We succeeded! (We were hoping it would make it to Limon, though.)
We bought the van in Fargo, ND, about a year before Christopher was born, so we brought two babies home from the hospital in the van. The van moved us from North Dakota to Idaho to Kansas to North Platte and to Syracuse. The kids and I drove to Utah and California many times. We put so many miles on it and rarely had to put any money into it (maybe $1000 total in the seven years we owned it). It just kept running and running. JJ learned to drive in the van. We survived the deer hitting us.
We will miss our faithful "Winnie the Winstar"!
|See where the deer hit - right above the front wheel and then bounced all the way down the side.|
|Waiting for Grandpa Layton and Aunt Jan to rescue us and let us borrow the pickup.|
