What was I doing in 1993? It was my second year of college and about this time (that year), I'd just finished driving my 1969 VW Bug from Salem (Oregon) to Denver. I'd rebuilt the engine right before I left Oregon, and my first 500 "wear-in" miles were on the road. Definitely not a good idea. It took me a week to get to Denver, as I broke down a few times: Little America, WY (dead battery), Green River, WY (blow fan belt), 50 miles past Green River (another fan belt). Leaking oil, blown fan belts, sleeping in the car - and all with no driver's license (I couldn't find it). I was 3 weeks late for school (only 10 weeks in a quarter), and the first day I went to class, there was a mid-term. Uugh.
