HAHA! The car issue was a minor loose-wiring problem as I suspected. Picked it up from the mechanic today. Would have been leaving tomorrow, except the migraine I woke up with this morning slowed me down too much, and I am not prepared. I'll head out Wednesday, drive like mad, and hopefully arrive in Philly Saturday. HOME! YAY!
Thank you to all sending me good vibes, and keep 'em up if you can! :)
