...warning - not a normal blog post <:O
Kathy and I arrived in Shakopee around 2:30 this morning - barely. At a gas stop 20 miles out Kathy's van was making a horrible noise. It was deserted there but a guy "happened" to pull in just as Kathy was popping the hood, and he was a mechanic. His guess was that it was the water pump or possibly serpentine belt. There were no warning lights on her instrument panel; he thought it would be ok to try and get to the hotel.
We cautiously made our way here, checked in and pulled around to park. Just as Kathy was parking she lost her power steering.
After just a few hours sleep we aren't thinking too clearly. We can't get in to Junk Bonanza until 10. Do we unload my van, then come back and load her stuff into my van and take it over? Or do we try to get her towed and have the tow truck stop at Canterbury Park so we can unload it - is that even possible?
Can anyone from this area recommend a good garage? The guy at the gas station last night suggested Firestone because they have a nationwide guarantee...
