I lovingly called this van my Homey Hauler and that is what she was referred to by our girls friends also. You see that van and I have been thru many things together and with all of her bumps, dings and rust, I still loved her!
She had two 80 to 100 foot trees fall on her 1 year apart, blowing out both front and back windows, completely covering her and throwing glass everywhere. Drawing neighbors each time to see what happened to our van, not believeing that we still had this vehicle! One neighbor as a storm was approaching last year, jokingly called asking if my van was okay? It was, she withstood that storm!
She made it up the side of a mountain during a Spring Break trip to Kentucky, when we all thought we were going right off the side of that mountain....she got us there! She hauled many Christmas trees longer then her frame home so we could enjoy the holiday. Last year almost losing her driver door in the process, a story I am not to repeat!
But, that last trip north proved to be more then she could handle and we had to say Goodbye to my friend! I did so enjoy driving her!
But, having to have transportation and quick, my husband and I spent a good two days searching and I now have a new friend....only Homey Hauler just doesn't fit! Oh Well, something will come to me!
I kind of like her too!
