I love long road trips.
The idea of going cross country & sleeping in either tents or old college motels seems almost charming to me.
That was until I heard about one excruciating experience my associate had while driving up north & then back down again. Apparently his car’s air conditioner is a bit touchy. It won’t kick on the coolant unless you are going over a recognizable speed limit, and even then it can sometimes turn off it you are having the air conditioning system on full blast making it to where you’re just blowing air from outside through which can be worse depending on the climate. My associate told me that during the trip up north the air conditioning system was working nice & that because they decided to do drive through the night there wasn’t too much to complain about. That quickly changed though on the way back apartment as they had picked up two friends along with a cat. Due to the increase in bodies along with the fact they were now driving down in the middle of the afternoon, the air conditioning system had decided to be a bit of a pain & completely stop working while they were stuck in a traffic jam just a few hours away from home. My associate said he felt as though he was melting into the leather & was sticking his head out of the vehicle just to attempt to feel a cool breeze pass by the car. Now that they’re back apartment he refuses to go someplace in the vehicle until the sun has begun to go down just to make extra sure that he is not going to get caught in the heat separate from the air conditioning system working.
