Whoa daisy, this was a leg of the road trip to remember. My hood popped up, twice. I got it fixed at a small town off 90 by a guy named Jim. He has 2 garages, on opposite sides of the street, in a town that was empty. Jim fixed my car for $15, I game him a $20 and said keep the change.
Made it to the Badlands which is 3 hours past where I was originally going to sleep. All the hotels were closed and the camping didnt allow dogs. Lindy and I slept in my car that night.
