Best 3 dollars I ever spent!

Today i am sitting at my sisters, about to sleep before a busy day moving into my g10.  Had no idea how to get the broke van here ..then called my roadside assistance thru my insurance, added for 3 bucks when i got the g20.  i was nervous but they made the process great and towed 50 miles and dropped me and my van 5 feet from my other one, 11pm at night.  I highly recommend this cheap option if you can!

 One thing to watch out for is shady tow truck drivers, the first tow truck driver they called tried to say I was only covered for $50 (but I was actually covered for a hundred miles no mention of monetary amount) he was trying to say I would have to pay an additional $100 to get towed. I immediately called them back at the insurance company and they cancelled that guy and got a different guy out there to help me.  I wasn't born yesterday.

 I'm trying to keep a positive attitude about everything just go from here

Rough week, RIP van...

This week Ive been pretty sick, the temp has been freezing, and Ive had some front end problem with the van.  Well turns out the control arm is broken, snapped like a rusty twig.   Can it be repaired?  probably.  Will I be doing that?  Nope.  I am not going to pump more money into a sinking ship, so I am going to try to get back in my previous van, at least until I can save up for something newer.

Luckily I only paid 600 for the G20, plus repairs Ive already sunk in.  Im going to try to transplant some body parts from it, and then recoup as much as I can from scrapping it.  There is some complications regarding the registration, WV's stupid personal property tax scam etc, and the logistics of getting my van to where the other one is located.  When it rains it pours.  

So, here  is to hoping things get better.
