Man-sculinity!


So here is the update on the CR-V breakdown:
I replaced the cracked radiator all by myself. I nearly died from heat stroke and dehydration as I toiled in the hot Monday sun. Massively scratched arms, sore muscles all around (soreness?) and a mild sunburn later, I had the new radiator in and running. I was elated to think that I had done this on my own, saved us some money and got our vehicle back in on the road. But with the luck that I was destined to live with, I of course didn't get the car completely fixed. It's still overheating, so tonight I will replace the thermostat and hope that does the trick. That's all for now. I'll keep you posted.
