Coyote Disaster

We are back safe and sound in Denver, but we can't say the same for our Jetta. Last night at 3AM when we were 50 miles from home a Coyote darted out in front of the car and did some major damage. We ended up spending an hour waiting for the police, another hour waiting for a tow truck, a few more hours waiting for the dealership to open, and got home around 10AM... yes, our 14 hour road trip turned into a 23.5 hour trip. It sounds like we are going to need new fan blades, a new windshield wiper fluid tank, wiper hook ups, engine carriage, and bumper estimated somewhere over $5000! Luckily we are insured and we were all fine.

Now we are just settling back into life here, Matt starts back at both jobs tomorrow, and I start back on Thursday. Our trip was great but I guess that it's back to reality!
