He and I were driving to Vegas for our daughter’s wedding. We left Monday morning in the beautiful 2013 Ford Flex that was on loan from Ford Motor Company to me specifically for this trip and headed out the 210 and up the 15. Over the next few days I will chronicle some of the more entertaining conversations he and I had during that road trip.
Just past Baker we notice some drops on the windshield.
Him: Is it raining?
Me: No of course not, we are in the middle of the Mojave Desert.
Him: There is water on the windshield.
Me: Someone else probably just sprayed their windshield wiper fluid in front of us.
Him: Told you it was raining.
Me: Whoa and the wipers just came on all by themselves.
Him: How could they do that? Your hands didn’t even move off the steering wheel.
Freaked us both out! When the car was delivered two days before, I never thought to figure out where the wipers were located. I live in Southern California and was driving through the desert to Las Vegas. Rain was no where in my mind. Thankfully, the Flex read my mind and turned on the wipers when needed and adjusted their speed as needed and turned them off as well. Only downside was it didn’t work on the rear wiper and I only figured out where that control was the day before they took the Flex away.
I really miss that car.
