Well, we started out to climb Mt. Washington. We paid the entrance fee, read the warnings and vehicle restrictions, put Av’s car in 1st gear – for the whole trip up and back – and with smiles on our faces, started out.
Until we got to about 2/3 of the way up. The van started running a little hot (the instruction sheet said that was normal and to just put the heater on). The road went from paved to dirt/gravel. And I started thinking, “okay, we are thousands of miles from home. There is no Enterprise Rent-A-Car close to here. And what the heck are we doing to our car?”. Being out in the boonies without a way to the rest of my beautiful vacation got me a little freaked out.
So we turned around.
It was still fun! And the views – 2/3rds up, anyway – were beautiful!
