well, you probably won't put this on the survey results cuz this guy was a shade tree mechanic who appeared from accross the fence (lived in the adjoining rv park) to fix my lil 82 honda accord hatchback in a motel6 parking lot. i was travelling from massachusettes to california via texas. 3 hours after i started my trip my car died on the interstate in pennsylvania. those guys fixed overnite (carbuerator $700) even tho i had had the carb. fixed 6 mo earlier in boston (when i first arrived THERE from california... i mean, 100 mi into mass and it died!) i discovered 3 hrs after leaving that pennsylvanian repair town that if i drove over 50 mi an hour it would start sputtering and lose power. so i limped through raging downpours and many many days and miles to dallas. visiting my son, i then limped onward. i didnt mind that i was only averaging 350 mi a day... i just minded that i couldnt listen to the radio because i had to listen to the engine AND keep my eye on the mph and that other dial thingy that tells u how many revs per whatever (i learned if i kept it at 50mph AND under 3 on the rev thing it wouldnt sputter and stall.) did i mention i had my cat with me? sooooo....true to form...3 is the magic increment ...hundreds of miles or # of hours or feet or rev thingys. (i stopped in glouschester to sightsee) after registering at the abilene motel6 i proceeded to start my car to drive over to my room. 30 feet and conk. i actually had to push it to my parking space and then believe it or not i took scarlett's advice and decided to wait until morning to think about it. the next morning the maintenece man couldnt help me BUT he knew this guy over in the rv park who was visiting his mom who maybe could! 10 min later this guy was leaning over my car and shuffling around and making uh huh noises. 1 hour later, after a trip to the local napa, it was fixed. seems someone put a wire running from one thing to another thing that was tooooooo long (shuda been 8", was 24") consequently it had burned, heating on something hot on the motor, and was shorting and blowing my fuses. he wanted $25, i disagreed and gave him $100 (one fifth of my total money). i BELIEVED he had fixed it. and he had... smooth sailin to california and to this day..10 months later. that trip took me 17 days (with a cat) but that guy proved to me that no matter how low you get on firewood and cash, more will always show up by the side of the road when you really really need it! ps no i am not a cute young thing...i am a dumpy 56 yr old female and was much the worse for wear by abilene. i wasn't wearing shorts (december) and he was still very nice. so not only did i learn about firewood, i learned a dashing 50ish knight in shining armor will load it into my car for me, too! veegee
