Poor Nick. Today we drove from Arlington, TX, to Vicksburg, MS, in 100-degree heat. In the middle of the day. In the Jeep. Which has no air-conditioning.
Yes, we're nuts.
We thought we had the air-conditioning fixed with a $90 shot of freon while we were in Arlington, but it turns out the freon leaked from multiple spots in the system. An $1,100 fix. No thanks. Argh.
We fed Nick ice cubes all along the trip to make sure he didn't overheat, and now at the dog-friendly Best Western, we're feeding ourselves some icy beers to replenish our fluids (yah, yah, yah, we know beer is not the answer ... just play along.)
This motel is our last chance to soak up air-conditioning for the summer of 2011. I DID mention we were nuts, right?
