Cars Friday Five

1. The earliest recollection you have of a family car
I remember the van we used to own when I was little. It looked like an ambulance; almost the exact same color but with no lights. We took many family vacations in that van. I also remember my mom’s orange chevy nova! You could hear that car coming a block away!

2. The first car you drove when you could (legally) get behind the wheel yourself.
The first car I legally drove was a 1991 White Ford Colt.

3. A memorable road trip—
The trip my friend Heather and I took about 10 years ago or so. We decided to take a roadtrip. It was a blast! We left from Dubuque, IA and headed for our trip. We first stopped in Bella Vista Arkansas and spent some time with my aunt and uncle and cousins. My aunt even took us into Bentonville where we explored the Sam Walton museum and a DaySpring outlet store. Then after a few days there, we headed for Ft. Smith where my friend Heather had done her internship. We spent a day there and then headed off to Chandler Oklahoma to see my friend’s aunt, uncle and cousins. We even got to drive and explore Route 66. Her aunt and uncles took us into Oklahoma City where we visited the Oklahoma City bombing site. Then after a few days, we headed to Kansas where we spent some time with Heather’s college friend and then we headed back to IA. It was so much fun!!!! Heather gave me a hard time because I hadn’t traveled much so I always made her stop by the “Welcome to this state.”

4. The car you drive now. Love it? Hate it? Love it! My uncle found it for me. It is a 2001 Olds Alero.It was owned by an elderly lady who hardly drove it and took fantastic care of it. It just hit hte 60,000 mark the other day!

5. An interesting story that involves you and a vehicle. (No, I do not have a dirty mind!)When I worked at SuperAwesomeBibleCamp, sometimes we were sent off to do day camps. We got some interesting vehicles. One time my friend Ben, another counselor and myself were sent off to do daycamp. We hadWe a great week but where given a rather older station wagon. On the way home, we got a flat tire. We pulled off to the side of the road. The spare tire was under all the luggage so we had to toss all the luggage onto the side of the road so we could find the tire. Once we got to the tire, we found out it was a lock-system so we had to search for the key. But needless to say, the key wasnt were the car manual told us we would find it. We got pretty frustrated but eventually found the key. A car stopped to see if we needed help but we told them we were fine. Eventually Ben got the tire changed, luggage back in the car, and we headed to camp. It was a crazy trip. Ben blamed my stuffed monkey on the flat tire because everytime something went wrong, we blamed the monkey because he said the monkey was cursed. There is even another great store about a vehicle and day camp…Ill have to tell you all about it sometime!
