We have one day, today, to get the most ideal vehicle for our road trip. The requirements are: comfortable, off-road (just in case), towing capacity, storage space, and sleepable. The solution is easy for Shannon and I, the Volvo XC70 (Cross Country). This is the car that we’ve been drooling over for years.
After searching online all morning we found the car we wanted in Buffalo. We explained the urgency to the salesman, Martin, as we completed the sale; we need the car so we can start our cross country road trip Monday morning! He commented that he always wanted to do a cross country trip with a motorcycle, “kind of a bucket list thing.” He had no idea how ironic his comment really was. Task 1, get a car, complete!
