My daughter was about to turn twenty-one years old. Her best friend asked her if she wanted to go cross-country with him for her birthday present. I was against the trip, but she was twenty years old and was able to make her own decisions. They were gone about two weeks, when I got this phone call. They had run out of money and their car had broke down. They were sleeping in Yellowstone Park. Actually, they were sleeping in the car, right outside of Yellowstone Park. They had no money, no gas for the car, and no air conditioning. The NO Air Conditioning was strongly accented. My husband and I wired her $200 to get her home, but she had to walk almost two miles to the nearest bank where she could get the money. After putting gas in the car, they were able to get back home. They travelled all the way back to the East coast without air conditioning, in the middle of July. They also asked me if I would be able to start the plans for them to get married. They wanted to get married right after she turned twenty-one, which was in three weeks. I knew I should have told her the trip was a bad idea. She said that sleeping out under the stars made her realize how much they loved each other. I kept hoping that coming home, without air conditioning, would have them both so aggravated that they would change their minds. I was so totally wrong. The wedding went on as planned, in the middle of August.
