Another Where’s Dart can only mean one thing, the Jeep is fixed. As we were packing up to leave, several songs were going through my mind: from the 70’s Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak”; from the 80’s Sammy Haggar’s “Can’t Drive 55”; and of course Willie’s “On the Road Again”.
I have to give a lot of credit to Liberty Jeep in Rapid City, South Dakota. I drove up late Tuesday afternoon. They took a look at it and had a part ordered the same day. From there, things went downhill. The part and Linda’s order from Amazon spent an additional 24 hours in Commerce City, Colorado. It should have been in town Friday but didn’t get to Rapid City until Saturday. UPS doesn’t deliver on Saturday, so we had to hope it got delivered Monday. When Linda got her Prime package just before noon we were hopeful. The part was delivered to the Jeep dealer by the afternoon. They started working on the Jeep late Monday and finished late Tuesday.
Linda spent lots of time rejiggering the travel plans as the delays piled up.
