The boys and I piled into the old truck last Friday. We were heading down to Tulsa to set up as artists/vendors at the 16th Annual Audubon Backyard Habitat Gardening tour. Well, wouldn't you know it, just an hour out of Kansas City and the truck breaks down. The alternator belt disintegrated and the engine overheated. Lots of steam. Luckily, we coasted into a nearby Phillips 66 for help. A local mechanic (Thanks Andrew and Squirrel) came out and got us back on the road. The rest of the road trip was plagued with anxiety over the truck. But, we made it to Tulsa with no other problems.
