Goodbye my car!

On Saturday, with the intention of driving to Noboribetsu for the Welcome Party and Hell Festival, my car decided it was finished driving.

I got off the expressway in a town not too far away and it started smoking and making a weird noise.

The nearby mechanic couldn’t do anything, so I had to drive back into town to the dealer.

Turns out that between the cost to repair those problems and my shaken (bi-yearly car tax) it’s going to be around $3500. I could buy a new car for that.

And so, goodbye my car. Goodbye my house-on-wheels. Goodbye my Ipsum. Goodbye convenience.
