We woke up this morning heading west to Montana. We got the car packed, said our goodbyes, turned the key to leave and nothing happened. We started the day with a dead battery.
We both took deep breaths as the kiddos in the back were already getting restless and we had not even moved yet.
From the beginning, we knew the trip was going to be a long day, but prayed our car would make it to our next stop. A little down the road we stopped to fill up, feed Sophie and get ready for the enchanted highway! We hopped in the car and again, turned the key and guess what?
Your exactly right. Our car decided to sleep a little longer and the battery did not want to start for us. We were extremely lucky that a nice family had just pulled up next to us as we were really in the middle of nowhere with not too many people in sight.
We grabbed our jumper cables and had déjà vu holding our breath in hopes the car would start.
Luckily it did and we explored through the enchanted highway then took a scenic route in Theodore Roosevelt National Park and headed to see our good friends Chet and Gail in Laurel, MT.
Tomorrow, first thing on the agenda. Check the engine, battery and get all the silly sunflowers out from under the hood. No more short cuts through sunflower fields anytime soon.
