Well, so much for THAT idea

We were supposed to be starting a 4,000 mile journey right about now to visit some family around the country.

The car had other ideas.

It's consuming oil. Not a whole lot, but enough that I don't feel comfortable driving 4,000 miles through the deserts of the Southwestern USA. Breaking down in the middle of the desert in July just doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun to me. So, that plan got scrapped. We may end up just dropping a new engine into the car, but even if we do that we still won't have the time to make the trip. So, new plan - just get to Wisconsin. Oh well. At least we'll be able to see Mt. Rushmore on the way.
