I spoke with a glass tech this morning and my worst fear was confirmed, Miranda needs a new windshield. Estimate is $750 to $1,000. They don’t have a windshield here in Fort St John, but there is one in Fort Nelson. All well and good, but getting that kind of money is going to take me a week, as add a week’s worth of campground fees to the estimate. He said that he’d take a chance and drive it to Dawson and back to Whitehorse in the fall for the replacement. The odds of getting another rock like that are slim, but the odds of the cracks spreading are good; one of them definitely spread over night (it went down to minus 5!). My visibility isn’t affected, so that’s one good thing.
At this point, I feel so sick I can’t even think. I know this needs to be done now, I just can’t figure out how it’s going to happen NOW.

I’ve decided to move on to Fort Nelson and re-evaluate. I will check in again soon as I can.Share on Facebook
