Another roadtrip 2 days before Christmas
The day after I pickup the gas golf cart and start unpacking everything in the daylight, I realize I forgot to get the gas tank from the seller.
My current plan for the gas cart is to use a different type of tank, but I’m not sure it will work out. I checked eBay and didn’t even see a tank being sold. I figure in 3-4 months when I’m getting close to getting the cart finished up, I will kick myself for not getting the tank.
So I arrange to have the tank left out by the garage so I can pick it up during the middle of the day when traffic won’t be so bad. I leave around 10:30 to head out on the 71 mile drive up there. About 1/2 way there, the southbound lanes of 75 are completely closed due to an accident. Then about 10 miles north of the accident, traffic is backed up due to construction. So much for a traffic free road trip.
I get the tank and strap it in the back of the truck bed. Not only is it oily, but it reeks of stale gas. No way I can drive 1 1/2 hours home with that thing in the cab. Waze takes me home a different way on some backroads. Part of the way cuts through a mall area where traffic is slow due to all the Christmas shoppers. About 2 hours later and a total of 150 miles, I have the gas tank:
Now that I went through all the time and hassle to get it, I’m not going to be surprised if I wind up selling it on eBay for $10.
