Talking After nearly 2 months of NO driving I picked up my car today!

The last time I drove a car was July, 4th. Then I flew to Europe, crashed a scooter in Rome, broke my ankle in 3 places, had surgery, flew home and I've been stuck in my house since. My doctor finally gave me the OK to drive and I picked up my 'Rex today. It was probably the first "good day" I've had since I arrived in Italy . Just thought I'd share .

Glad to hear you're driving again. Where in Italy did you go? I'm about to take off for Sicily on Tuesday.

Ha, my ankle is still technically broken so I have to lift my leg up in order to move from the gas pedal to the break pedal. Let's just hope I don't have any sudden stops anytime soon :P.

Rome. And, I crashed the first day I got there so I didn't get to see anything. But before Italy we had gone to London and Barcelona. I missed all of Italy, Germany, and Ireland unfortunately.

I bet your car feels so fast after being away so long. It's amazing how quickly it goes back to ho hum boring. I know when I had time away from my car that was the case.

Thanks man it's a blast! Breaking is still a bit of an issue so I'm avoiding that at all costs .
