We barely made it down to the courtyard of the Downtown Community Centre on Sunday. About half way there, Charon heard a very loud cracking sound which led to no power steering, and a series of warning buzzers and lights. After feeding everyone and taking left overs to Aids Vancouver Island, a tow truck came to haul our old work horse of a van to the garage.
Tuesday we found out the damage and cost. Belts, timing chain, oil change and a prognosis for the future all came to about $700.
The good news is, we have the money in the bank to pay it. But, the bad news is, it will effect our operating costs and our ability to purchase the goods we need to serve the CARTS community in the inner city.
