Had a great time at the BBQ today with Chris, Keivan and the whole gang..Hell, even got some Geocaching done while out there but the real adventure was getting out to the park in the first place!
First of all, I woke up at 8 just to get ready for Chris to pick me up at 9:30… I called him and promptly realized that it was only 8:30! I had set my alarm foward an hour while snoozing or something yesterday! lol. So he agrees to pick me up and we went to pick up his G/F from the car dealership. We get a phonecall that they forgot a few things for the BBQ… Water, Grill Brush, Spatula, etc… so we head out to get that stuff…A few more delays but we’re on our way…..
Just before Commack Road (on the Long Island Expressway) we notice Chris’s car making some foul noises. (We noticed it slightly earlier but it was getting much louder!)….Like a really nasty knocking in the engine…. We pulled off to the side and there was smoke coming out from under the hood and the car kept stalling…
We managed to get it into a parking lot and called K to come pick us up….
To make a long story short, we got back to Plainview and got another car and headed out to the BBQ. It was a lot of fun, and we got a tow truck in under a half hour when we went back for the car… Definitely an eventfull day.
Work again tomorrow 🙁 Oh well….
glad you had a nice time. hope chris’ car is ok 🙂
I doubt it. It’s dead… He’s planning on getting another anyways, so it’s about time.
