The Friday Five

Friday Five — February 4, 2005

1. How old were you when you got your drivers license? I was seventeen, it was right before my senior year in high school.

2. Did you get your own car right away, use the family car, or bum rides from friends? I used my father’s truck, and it was awesome.

3. What was your first car and what was it like? My grandmother gave me a huge black car that was on it’s last legs. Was fun.

4. How old were you when you got your first traffic ticket and what happened? I was 18 years old and I was driving on campus at UMaine Orono. I missed a stop sign because I was not used to driving (was driving someone else’s car.)

5. What is your favorite car story, be it an accident, road trip, etc? My grandmother and I were driving from Maine to New York State to have Thanksgiving dinner with my parents. About half-way through New Hampshire we broke down. She needed an alternator or something. So we spent the day at this strange house waiting for the car to be fixed. Was quite an adventure.
