day 21; mile 002741

mayday! mrs. hawsie sanchez lives up to her name. last night, after a very nice meal at the bob evans east of st. louis, we started her only to feel a heavy chugging and see lots of white smelly smoke billow out of the exhaust pipe. we stopped across the street in a bank parking lot to assess the situation. after some reading and internet research (cell phone saves the day once again) we decided to drive the bus about 150 yards to a motel nearby. this morning we located a vw shop in st. louis and had a tow truck take her over. so, until we figure out what will happen, we're holed up here at the collinsville, illlinois comfort inn...
