    I think the funniest one was coming back from Big Bend in west Texas with my dad. We went out there to camp after my high school graduation. The truck started acting weird so we decided to head home a day early.

    So there we were driving across west Texas in the summer in an overheating truck. Had to stop every time we found shade (not often) to let the truck cool. A 12 hour trip ended up taking almost 20.

    Sounds bad but it was hilarious. Connected with the old man like I never had before. Something about suffering together I guess. I kept him laughing the whole way (couldn't stand him complaining about the truck). We still joke about it to this day.

    With the right mindset even a shit time can be turned into a great memory.
