Do you remember the days when gas stations had garages attached to them? Get gas and get your oil changed. Those types of service centers are few and far between.

We did eventually find a tow truck that towed us to a dealership garage. The garage replaced the fuel pump and four hours after the water pump decided to freeze up, we were in our car and traveling once again to our destination. I just want to add that we received wonderful service. The mechanic stayed passed quitting time to make sure our car was repaired and safe to travel once again.
We had a wonderful visit with family while visiting Arkansas.
The trip home was quite uneventful, for which we are most thankful.
I want to share a few pictures that I took on our trip home.
The long winding roads in the hills of Arkansas. (I was trying not to drop my phone as I took pictures.)
Large red rocks beside the roadways.
The red dirt of Arkansas. (Still worried about not dropping my phone.)
We arrived home safely and 30 degrees cooler from the start of our 9 hour trip.
We really needed a cupcake after our breakdown.
Let me know in the comments below, any of your eventful traveling experiences.
