in honor of red, white, and blue, and all fourth of july festivities this past week…
i take you back to 1997.
while dusty & i were english teachers in seoul, south korea…
we would plan little trips around southeast asia as often as we could.
one of those trips took us to phuket, thailand.
at this time, i was five months pregnant with our first baby girl.
on one afternoon, we rented a jeep to go cruise around the back roads of phuket.
a star-spangled jeep!
soon after we left, a major rainstorm hit. we’re talking flash flood.
we quickly learned that our windshield wipers didn’t work.
five months pregnant, with dusty driving the best he could on the opposite side as normal, the right side. i was hanging out the side of our jeep, wiping the window with my hand trying to help make the road more visible.
the road was at least six inches deep with mud, we were on top of a mountain, sliding around in our jeep. me hanging out the side. no working wipers. awesome.
one of our favorite memories.
i highly recommend…
