We Lost our AC

Family vacations can be a lot of fun, but they can also be quite testing of one’s patience.

When I was younger, my family and I would go on many trips together, and some of my fondest memories are from those trips.

Now that I am married and have my own family, I understand why my mom and dad we often stressed out on family trips. It is honestly a lot of work to plan and follow through with a family vacation. It seems like there is always something that goes wrong. This past summer, our family took a trip to the mountains, and minus the road trip there and back, it was a lot of fun! On our way there, the air conditioning in our van went out. We tried to stay positive and just recharge it hoping that it would last the rest of the trip. Sadly, we only had air conditioning for about two hours after we recharged it, and then it was out again. My husband ran some dye through the air conditioning lines and found out that we had a leak in one of our lines. So, we did not have air conditioning for the entire rest of the trip which was seven more hours. Everyone was hot and miserable. My husband tried to get the line replaced while we were at our cabin, but the mechanic was asking for too much money. My husband knew he could easily replace it himself when we got back home, but that meant the entire trip home would be without air conditioning as well. In the end, the trip was a blast, but I hope we never lose AC on a trip again.
