I am in Sydney (NS) about 5.5 hours drive from my home. Because of the distance I take Ed's car because it get's better mileage then the SUV. I finish up a little early today and decide to drive out to Louisburg. There's a high wind today and I figure that the waves will be awesome around the lighthouse.

Half-way there my console conks out. 'huh?' I think. I then brake and the car goes *clunk* I pull over and it *clunks* again and comes to a shuddering stop. on the side of the road. in the middle of no where. :confused: you may remember that this is the same vehicle that stranded me on the highway when the radiator hose sprung a leak.

Fortunately I have a cell service. CAA comes out and 'Earl' tows us back to Sydney. Earl thinks it's the alternator. And he knows a guy. He drops me at the hotel. I have an address as to where hubby's car is going but that's all. At this point I don't care. But I have to be home tomorrow because I'm flying to Swansea Mass Weds. For work.

So I am in the hotel room waiting for Earl or his 'guy' to call me. And tell me what's wrong. I phoned Ed and told him that I was coming home tomorrow if I have to rent a car and he can deal with this. :wall-an:

I know it's a bit 'Scarlet O'Hara-ish' but god is my witness I will never drive this car a long distance alone again :yell:

and I never got to Louisburg to take photos. :sad:

seriously this car only breaks down with me. :mad:

kinda takes the sting out.

Well I made it home. I have given Ed back his car keys and told him that never again will I take his vehicle on a journey that exceed 1.5 hours (or if he's away). so there!
