What was supposed to be a relaxing weekend spent camping and hiking turned out much differently. We made it just past the little town (how is it possilby a town...store is more like it) of Banks, when Jeff decided the check engine light was not messing around, that the truck battery was quickly losing power, and that we needed to turn around ASAP. Prayers were said quickly in hopes of making it to some form of civilazation before we completely lost power. We made it through Horseshoe Bend and slowly made it up the big hill between Horseshoe Bend and Boise, the engine died at the top of the hill and we coasted to the Chevron station in Eagle. Civilization! After way more drama than I choose to go into, we spent the day at Jeff's dad's replacing the alternator in the truck. Fun times.
