We were just informed that our van has a shot transmission, and the only option available to us is to spend $1400 on a used transmission.

We'd be here for a couple days, which means I obviously won't make it back to work on time, and which means I'm going to be completely, utterly flat broke. Or in debt. But we have no choice, and this Astro 2000 (the van) is now officially…

Our van was making some funny noises as we were driving into Syracuse, and we took it to the mechanic today and they told us that our transmission was shot, and that it would cost anywhere from $1500 to $2500 to fix it.

And we're in Syracuse, like, thousands of miles away from home and we have 40 dollars in the van fund...we're fucked.
