Re: So now I will have to drive this thing?

Yep... Friday now... And the adventure has begun.

And I am stuck. Lol...

No problem driving... It actually drives real easy....but i now have a leaky return fuel line. The former owner had part of it replaced yesterday when we noticed a leak and it was ok for a bit, but now it is leaking where they connected the new hose. Got from Caraquet to just outside of edmunston and now waiting for my insurance bureau to open so I can get a tow... Sigh......

Keep your chin up. An event this big and epic is bound to have some struggle.You will prevail! A fuel return leak isn't the end of the world, but I understand it for sure is a hassle! It will all be worth it, though.

Could be worse.

(Don't say it!)

It really could be.

(DON'T SAY IT!)

It could be snowing.

So about 340 km before the "pause." Almost halfway home. The stories you will be able to tell. (Please)
