I woke up today with a few goals.. 1) Get my steps in 2) hydrate and increase my water 3) get my errands done.
Goal 2 was toast- I totally hydrated.
As I was on my way to accomplish #3, I heard a clunk noise from the car. Now- I was not driving my beloved jeep but instead the 2000 VW… saving gas. The noise sounded like maybe I was dragging something. I pulled over to the side of the highway to look. Tires were fine. Nothing hanging or coming from underneath. Popped the hood- it looked fine (as far as this gal could tell..)
Went back in the VW and even though it was running, I couldn’t get it to shift into drive. Tried reverse. Nope. Crap…
I sat in the VW for a good 20 minutes… wishing it to just work. Nope. Not my miracle today. I did a little “google research” and all that came back were blaring words like “transmission”…
Since I was not near home, or even a store… (I was in TheMiddleofnowhere, TX) I decided a tow was in order… USAA was very helpful. They even sent me a text with the tow ETA. 75 minutes out.
Wait. Goal #2. I gotta pee… Pray for me!.
