I had intended to spend a little more time writing this post, but alas, we are nearing the time for departure…

Caitlyn (my almost-grown-up daughter) and I are headed out on a road trip in a few minutes! We’re headed to Knoxville, TN to trade Bertie – our 1996 Supercharged, AWD Toyota Previa – for a 1987 Mercedes 300SDL (aka turbo diesel). I love Bertie – and Previas – but she needs a little more time and love than I can afford to give her right now! I’m excited to see what her new mechanic owner does with her. 🙂 Here’s our path; if you’re somewhere along the way, let me know and we’ll try to stop for a quick cup of coffee!

For those who don’t know me, I love working with cars. Caitlyn is starting to learn as well, and we’re looking forward to having a project car – but hopefully one that’s a little more reliable as a daily driver! I’ll share some of our mechanical adventures, future and past, as time allows.

… For now, though, it’s time to head out! First stop: Frederick, MD, to pick up a set of third row seats that someone has for $20. We’ll share pictures and stories as we are able.

Have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! Tally ho!!
