A Travellerspoint blog

It Lives

Resurrection, Pep Boys, After Market car parts

sunny 75 °F

OK, it has been a weird couple of days and there will be a much longer blog entry coming that will deal with the ups and downs of the last few days.

But, here it is. The Torrent is alive. It is going to get a cheap-ish fix and we are going to drive it back to Canada. Pep Boys is an auto repair chain in the US. They have all the after market parts necessary to fix the front end of our car at a much reduced cost from what the Chev dealer wanted.

They also have a product that will help with the head gasket problem...it seals leaks, at least temporarily.

So, we will be back on the road home on Monday, with the Torrent and the boler attached. We will take a semi direct route back, but we will camp our way home, so there will be more blog entries.

We now expect to be back in Nova Scotia before the end of April. We will then deal with buying a new car once we get home.

YAY!! We are excited to have our old buddy back and hope it will get us back home...we expect it will.

Good to hear, I would think it will be the bone yard for your Torrent when you arrive back.
Travel safe see you when you get here.

Well, glad to hear you're back on the road. But looks like there's another trip to pick up where you've left off!
