I want a geek chick whos as good at rooting a linux box as she is at licking my balls
So Anil calls me at work yesterday and leaves me a voicemail saying that the van that we're taking on the road trip needs a lot of work, and it's gonna work out to $200 per person, and that's after the half that his parents were supposed to pay. What the hell! That sucks, I wasn't planning on spending any. Apparently his parents knew it needed work but didn't say anything to him. So on the last working day before our trip he takes it in for a tune up and they tell him this. Had they told us a month ago when he told them we were gonna use it, either we could have had the work done cheaper, or arranged for another vehicle.
I tell my dad the story and he brought a good point. "What are you getting out of this," which is very true. Granted we get to take the van for two weeks, the real value of spending that much money on the vehicle is that it will be that much more reliable in the future, and have a greater resale value. So we'll have to wait and see, he was gonna talk to his parents and let us know.
That and Ben decided to go camping this weekend... couldn't have picked a worse time. He's camping yesterday and today, home tomorrow to work all day, then leave at 1am for the road trip. This is gonna be wild, we'll have to wait and see.
