A troublesome trip

What a trip! Last week I had to drive a 2000 miles. It was already late and I was already looking for a place to spend the night when suddenly my truck broke down. It was in a middle of a forest, 50 miles from the closest town.
I’ve been watching my dad work on truck engines for years. Generally, I have no problem fixing my truck if it brakes down. But this time was different. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get it to start. It was a very unpleasant night.
