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.
