Where’s Dart (2018-2)?

Where’s Dart (2018-2)? This is the view from our campsite.

By Regis

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.

  1. Dart is posing in front of the Devil’s Tower. And now I need some mashed potatoes and Reese’s Pieces.

    • D’oh! The Reese’s Pieces were featured in that OTHER ‘visitor’ movie.

    • Yes, he is at Devil’s Tower. They show the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind every night in the campground throughout the summer. I forgot about the mashed potatoes. We should have had some for dinner!

  2. Paul and I have been there several times. Very cool. When you mentioned Willy’s song on the road again I had to laugh. I used to travel all the time for my job and when I was driving I would sing going down the road “ on the road again”. It would be stuck in my head forever. Safe travels and hope you don’t have more breakdowns.
