An Interactive Twilight Experience.
This year we decided to do something completely different and spontaneous.
I had just gone on a hunt and was walking by a dealership and saw the most incredible vehicle staring at me from the car lot. Yes, I did say staring at me. I felt like it was calling my name. It was saying Benjamin.. You know you want to take me home. You know you can't live without me. I turned and looked around to see if maybe someone was actually calling my name. Nope, not a soul. I walk over to the vehicle and take a look at. Checking out the price tag and the amenities.
Doing some quick math and seeing that it is a fair price... I see a salesperson out of the corner of my eye. I get the impression that he hasn't met his sales quota for today and possibly the month or longer. He greets me kindly and asks me some basic questions. I ask if I could do a little test drive on this creature before us. He says certainly and happens to have the key with him.
We climb in and he starts telling of the amenities listed. I can tell he is not quite sure what to make of me. I just smile and respond to his questions. I take move the vehicle out of the lot gently and start to turn out onto the road. I try to keep at a normal human pace and feel the engine purr like a kitten. I know that I have to have this vehicle.
Returning to the car lot, I re-park the car and head over to the sales table with the salesman. He seems to be much calmer than before.
We fill out the paper work and he about near has a heart attack when I tell him I want 3 vehicles. One shipped to Egypt, one shipped to England and one to remain here in the US.
And so starts our camping trip across the United States.
