|Jacques and I are wandering around in a 2008 Ford Escape hybrid. Back home, it's Mo's car. We bought it to replace a Chevrolet Tracker that started to -literally - fall apart. Mo was attracted to the 30+mpg feature.
The 30+mpg is why I'm using it for my road trip. I most often drive a 2004 Ford Escape that gets less mpg but is good for hauling stuff to camps, trailhead, or the county landfill.
Jacques rides in the center console. He doesn't say much, but he's quick with a comforting gesture. He agrees with me that it would be more fun to travel with Mo.
