Broke down (way) outside of Battleground


Over the weekend, Weez, Cabo, and I had grand plans to go backpacking outside of Battleground, Washington. 2 hours into the drive on a backcountry/dirt trail/forest road, a rock pin-balled underneath my car, leaving us with a broken engine, stranded in the middle of nowhere. Good times.

We figured we might as well document the situation for funsies.

Where’s the craziest place your car has ever broken down? What’d you do to get help?

    Bahahah! When you posted this weekend, I thought FOR SURE that you two decided to run the 25+ miles back to civilization! Haha, really cute video! Hope the camping in the living room was splendid.

    I sort of adore that you guys had this big ordeal, but just stayed chill and decided to videologue it. I probably would’ve been cranky and upset – but I love how chill you both stay. And I’m glad you didn’t have to run 20+ miles for help. Although, I suppose it’s encouraging to know that you *could* have, if that had been necessary. :)

    Crazy place I ever broke down? Mozambique. Had a mechanic from a local village fix my car :)

    Eek, sounds like a cracked oil pan! Great idea to record the event though, not as fun as camping, but probably as memorable.
