I remember road trips when I was a kid. Me & my family had this seasoned station wagon for the longest time. I can’t think how long that thing ended up running. I can’t tell you how more than 2 miles were on it when it finally offered up the ghost, however every one of us had some fantastic times in that thing. It was a real family car, & I assume what you would call a grocery getter these days, as the trunk had an incredible amount of room for that! As more than 2 cherished memories as I have riding around in that thing as a child with my parents & sister, maybe it’s because my rose-colored glasses are on when I reminisce. After all, when I reflect a little bit longer, I realize that road trips were absolutely pretty bad in a few ways.The main way was that the air conditioner in that darned station wagon never seemed to labor officially.The amount of cooling that it would deliver out was spotty at times & non-existent at other times. Both of us would consistently complain about how tepid every one of us were in the backseat & our parents would tell us to zip it. It’s particularly funny remembering this, because it bares a stark contrast to the way my kids live on road trips. First of all, every one of us have a entirely nice SUV that has incredible temperature control & a powerful air conditioner in particular. They still do some bickering in that back seat, however there are just as more than 2 other times when they are completely zonked out & sleeping in air-conditioned comfort!
