Van Ailin': Driver Down
Mon., Apr. 16. 2007 10:19am EDT
Keith "Holy Driver" Haynie is the designated driver of the ApologetiX van (330,000 miles and counting). Why is he down? Didn't he read in last week's newsletter that we plan to replace it with a bus soon?
Well, as soon our van found out it wasn't going to be the center of attention much longer, it decided it needed a new transmission. Hooray. If the van ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. Thankfully, it didn't happen on a road trip this time, and our trusted local mechanic says he can fix it before we leave for Tennessee, Oklahoma and Missouri this weekend.
We're hoping to have that bus ready to roll in time for a 10-day tour June 29-July 8. In the meantime, we're getting a new tran$mi$$ion. Once we get the bus, we plan to keep the van as Keith's vehicle and as our emergency vehicle in case the bus goes down.
