Bathing Thor

      No Comments on Bathing Thor

Over four months on the road, drives though mossy Oregon forests, rides on coastal California dunes, puddles of vomit in Nevada, Thor is ready for a bath before we head back to Nevada. Car Wash time? You bet!

We bought $5 in tokens, rolled up our pant sleeves, and got to work on Thor.

I forgot how fun this is. The “wheel of wash” allows you to select how you want to wash your vehicle—>Foam brush, wax, high pressure rinse, low pressure rinse, blow dry. I spun the wheel and chose foam brush and high pressure rinse. As I foamed Thor, Hali followed with her own scrubber scrubbing Thor’s private parts. Four months of road scum down that car wash drain.

We pulled Thor into the vacuum stall. Jackpot!!! I found three quarters in the coin return slot. Thor’s good luck? Perhaps.



We opted for the 5-minute vacuum with your choice of fragrances—>Wild Cherry, Black Ice, or New Car Smell. I gambled and went with New Car Smell. Why not? What are the odds that a 30 year old van smell like a new car with a 5-minute vacuum treatment. Well, Thor wasn’t so fortunate this time. I’m not sure what Black Ice smells like but Thor smelled more like it than a new car. At least he didn’t smell like craps.

In any case, Thor was clean and revitalized. Ready to roll. Roll the dice and head to Vegas.
