Yesterday, Chris called the Mechanic to check on our van and he said he had the whole thing ripped apart, the new part installed, and were beginning to put the van back together. So it sounds like we will be able to leave Friday, as long as the Mechanic didn't run into any problems. We asked for a late check-out, so we have to be out of our hotel by 3:00pm. We hope to be on the road by then. We will keep everyone updated.
