I got a new vehicle this weekend. Well, it’s new to me, I bought it from a close friend. It’s a 2001 Chevy Venture LS. Yes, I have re-achieved minivan status. It came complete with the soccer-mom sticker on the back, LOL.

It’s not perfect, there’s a tiny leak that nobody can find in the cooling system somewhere, but it only requires a half gallon of coolant occasionally – maybe twice a month or something – so no big deal. The starter may need to be replaced in the next few months, but those are cheap to pick up, since Ventures are a dime a dozen here and the part is located on the top of the engine, so it should be pretty cheap to fix.

All-in-all it’s a very good deal. The friend I bought it from drove it to me from St. Louis and we had a great time catching up and hanging out. We hadn’t seen each other in quite a while, so it was great just to catch up on lost time.

I also proved, yet again, that there is NOTHING to do in Oklahoma City, especially on a Sunday. We could have gone to the Medieval Faire, but we didn’t have enough time. He had to fly back that afternoon, so we just hung out and had coffee and drove around for a few hours to reminisce and talk. It was a wonderful weekend.

Thank you, Gavin. I owe you a lot.
