At about 3:30 my dad and I decided to make the four and a half hour trip to St. Louis. We packed our bags and headed out about 1 hour later. After driving about 2 and a have hours we stopped a little north of Evansville, KY to get some gas and something to eat. We filled up the tank, got in the car, and turned the key. Nothing happened. The battery was dead. A guy from AAA came and jump started our car and it worked. But dad didn't want to take the risk of going on to St. Louis so we came home.

You are not alone. I was taking my wife, before she was my wife, to Great Adventure one fall day, and the car died on the Verazano Bridge.


Here's To Shorter Lines & Longer Trip Reports!

Count me in as part of that unlucky crew.

Back in 2001 heading to SFA the car died on us on I-66 just shy of the Centreville exit.We hadn't been on the road from Manassas for no more than about 20 minutes & the day was already shot as a result.

My story ends a little differently... I was ΒΌ of the way to Hershey and I got a flat tire. I drove home with the donut, got a new tire, and made my way to Hershey anyway.
^Why would you drive back home to get a tire replacement?

My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

But I did just get back from Holiday World!
^^ Chitown,

I was just before getting on the Walt Whitman bridge... I didn't wanna drive around with a donut too long and get lost in Philly and have no idea where to find a tire place. That, and I wasn't sure that I was going to head to Hershey still, so I just headed straight home.
