This jumping is a problem for me … I can’t seem to remember the proper order to jump start a car. So I keep this printout in the glove compartment. (Why can’t I just get the truck on a hill and pop the clutch like I used to?)
I always need the repair history of Lilith. I keep all receipts. That proved to be too hard to access quickly, so I started making an index card with the info in the driver’s side visor pocket.
I have had no AAA for the last few years because I have been traveling on roads that a) have no cell service and/or b)are on dirt roads, which AAA doesn’t like. With a long (3,000 miles) trip on paved roads coming up I decided it was time to put on my big girl pants and get an extra cushion of implied safety. There were 3 level AAA memberships that I could choose from. I picked the medium “Plus” level that offered a 100 miles tow.
So I feel ready. Mileage is now 79,200. New tires at 72,000. Tires rotated at 79,000. New oil, new filters at 79,000. I have spent 3 days planning out a route with free camping spots (thanks to https://freecampsites.net/) and Walmart Super Centers. I am so nervous about big city driving that the intended route is a bit wonky, but I will breathe easier and have fun along the way. I have accumulated funky history facts and noticeable attractions about the towns I’ll pass through. I am looking forward to the trip and the destination.
The cell connections may be spotty along the way. I will post when I can.
Problems? Nah. Got it covered.
