New Car…And I Finally Got Back On 1-95 Since The Accident!

Many of you know I was involved in a terrible rollover accident last month on I-95 heading to Disney World which left my truck a useless pile of metal and me a shook up mess.

I am proud to say that this past weekend I gathered up the nerve to take the drive on I-95 again with my husband and kids for alittle family outing to the SmithField Outlets in Smithfield NC.

Me riding on I-95 This Past Weekend

Before I put aside my fears to get on that death trap of a highway again, I often wondered if I was overreacting in not wanting to go on I-95 again. Then again I guess crashing into a guard rail at full speed and rolling over twice would make just about anyone second guess taking the ride.

Oh How I Miss "Blue Bertha"

Fear aside I jumped into my brand new(er) Ford Explorer…Oh yes did I mention I purchased a Ford Explorer as my new SUV. This is amazing considering that I swore off SUV’s and definitely Fords at that. It took a good friend Susanna from Military Duty Stations to make me realize that besides God and my angels, that just maybe being in Blue Bertha (that was my Ford Expedition’s name) might have been the reason I am still here. I also took into account that I had my previous Ford for three years and she never gave me any mechanical problems.

While I haven’t exactly gotten the courage to actually do the driving on I-95 again yet, I am so glad to just be back on the road!

My new baby!

Thanks to all my readers who shared their recommendations of the best cars and trucks to get!

    I love my Ford too! good for you that you guys got back on the road! I know it was rough, but now you’re oh so much better for it. Seat belts/airbags save lives!
