It turns out that our car is leaking oil out of several spots in and around the motor block and fixing it would be, according to the car dude, a ‘very involved operation’ costing more than the car is worth. Short drives are okay, but he definitely discouraged going on longer trips.
Longer trips as in: driving coast to coast.
Well, that’s a bummer. So no cross-country trip this time, I think.
So it’s the airplane again, I guess.
