Road trips are so much fun! My family and I love to go on long road trips. It is something that we have always loved to do, and it gives us a break from our mundane, everyday lives. My husband loves to plan our trips, and he does a really great job, so I just let him do everything that is involved in planning the trips. My job is to get everyone packed and to try and make sure that no one forgets anything that they will need. We recently made a trip way out West, and it took over twenty-five hours one way. Unfortunately, about nine hours into the trip, the air conditioning in our car went out. We stopped at a mechanic, and he told us that we had a hole in our AC line, so he tried to patch it for us. Sadly, the patch didn’t last more than just a few hours, and the air conditioning line was leaking again. We then stopped at another mechanic to see what they could do, but they said that we simply needed to replace the line, or the same thing would just keep happening. We looked online and found a new AC line, but it had four day shipping. We did order it, but obviously we wouldn’t have air conditioning until the trip back. The rest of that trip was miserable because it was just so hot. It was the middle of August way out West, and the temperatures were over a hundred degrees. When we finally arrived at our destination, we realized that all of the torture of riding in the car without AC was worth it. That was, by far, our favorite trip yet. We had so much fun, even without air conditioning in our vehicle.
