All of us friends graduated from high school about 2 months ago. We are all ready to go to college in different states. So, we wanted to have one last time together and do a road trip. So we planned a cross state journey to the north. Our tour of the north included 3 different state parks and 1 landmark. We were planning the trip for the whole year, so we would have plenty of funds. We all have older cars, so we decided to rent one for the trip. Since none of us are 21 years of age, my parents had to cosign and buy the insurance for the rental. They really gouged us! The total price for our rental was just shy of $1,100, for ten days and unlimited mileage. We were just getting to our first stop, when the air conditioning system stopped working! It was pretty warm outside, but we were able to roll down the windows for comfort. We went inside the gas station, and came out to find the air conditioning system working again. It was odd, but we weren’t worried because the air conditioner had started working. The next day, we got up ready for another long day of driving. We had been driving for less than 30 minutes, when the air conditioning system stopped working again! This time, the temperature gauge in the car started to skyrocket. We pulled off the road, so I could call my parents for help. We had to call a tow truck too. Luckily, they gave us a new rental car for the rest of the trip.
