MotherGoose - PCT - Mar 22, 2012 - Accident In Kentucky
All items are coming together and I'll be leaving next Tuesday for Arizona.We went to Kentucky to see the grandkids and my brother last week and on the way home Jim pulled out in front of an SUV and got T-Boned, no one was hurt, but it made for a lot of trouble, the car wasn't drivable so we had to rent an Aveo to bring us home. They wanted $ 297. for one day rental with a drop off fee, so we paid $ 67 for the entire weekend Fri, Sat, Sun and Mon and we came home picked up my car and drove back to Ky to drop the car off, even with the extra gas, and motel we saved $ 60 here is a pic of the car. We haven't heard from the Insurance Co. whether they are going to total the car or not. I kinda doubt it. don't think the damage is that great. Looking forward to the trail. Elderly Ellen will be picking me up in Tucson and taking me to the trail at Collasol Cave and I'll head north from there. Always love Spring and the beginning of hiking season.
