But not just any road trip.
His uncle who lived in Nashville, TN died.
His dad drove to the funeral, where he inherited his brother's car.
Dad called Butch and asked him if he would:
-fly to Nashville
-drive uncle's car (behind dad/step mom who's driving their car) from Nashville to Palm Springs, CA (where dad lives)
-fly home from Palm Springs
All expense trip paid for by dad: plane tickets, gas, expenses, hotel room, food, cigs...
He flew out Tuesday at 1:30 & landed in Nashville right close to midnight.
On Wednesday they made it to Little Rock
On Thursday they made it to Amarillo
This morning they'll be lucky to make it near Alburquerque because they've hit snow. In fact at 10:30 in the morning looks like they might be stopping for the day because they've already spun out with some gnarly near-collisions & are a bit shooken up.
We are not sure when he's coming home. All we know is that it'll be before Christmas Eve.
Good luck Dad!! (And his dad & wife... since she's younger than me it's a bit wierd to call her "mom").. We love you & are praying for you!!
