With the events going on in Oregon this month, I'm reminded of the different cross-region or cross-country road trips that I've been on. I've only broken down once. That was on a 1977 Jeep CJ5 where the gas gauge went out on me. I was leaving Moses Lake, WA headed home early. I was on a road just off I-90 and my buddies were about 4 hours behind me. So I sat and waited and waited and waited for 4 hours while they packed up camp and headed down the trail. Finally they found me and with a spare 5-gallon fill-up I got back up and running. (Took a long time to live that down though).
