A quick trip to Jupiter…

Started out as a last minute just me and my girlfriend/dive buddy trip to Jupiter, FL for a early Saturday morning boat dive.  It ends up an all day event as my car decides to drop trou- on I-95 just a few miles into the return leg.  We pulled over and decided to drive north on US 1 since the mystery malfunction was thought to be heat related.  Long story short – by the time we made it to Ft Pierce the car was turning itself off every couple of miles.  We stopped, cooled down for an extended 20+ minutes and then made it to a ____ dealership. There we waited another 20+ minutes to see if someone could figure this thing out.  A no go. So we headed out, expecting to breakdown at any time, to try and lessen the distance a tow-truck would need to tow me and charge me. We kept the speed down to 40 mph and we made it home 2+ hours later.

Here is a video that we captured that day that makes the long drive worth it…
