A New Car

So my truck died in Enfield, NC on my way home from my vacation. I left it and rented a Uhaul for the return trip. The truck, or fort, served me well with two trips to Canada, two out west, and 2 1/2 down the east coast to Florida. I haven’t had a new car in 24 years so I thought it might be time. I bought a brand new Jeep Compass. I thought the name was very appropriate, but I like to think this wasn’t the only reason I chose this vehicle.

So on June 11th, my students left the building, excited about their summer. I pushed them out of the way and beat half of them to their cars. More excited than most of them, I was already packed and well on my way by nightfall. June 12th I arrived in West Virginia and hiked that states section of the Appalachian Trail-four miles!

I stayed a couple of days in Florida and then flew from Miami to Bonaire! more »
