We have decided to put our van Agatha back on the road with a few repairs. We are hoping to hobble along as best we can until early next year when it will be easier for us to replace her. We have had her off the road for a week now and I have to tell you, I HATE being without a vehicle. I am spoiled. I don't like it anymore and I find myself avoiding going places that involve taking the bus. So keep your fingers crossed it doesn't cost too much to just get the basic get-her-on-the-road repairs done.
