"Forty-eight hours without sleep had turned us into animals. After the sick incident at the gas station, we were running scared. The UHaul had a bad starter, so we couldn't shut the vehicle off without stranding ourselves for hours.

I was able to pull myself together enough to demand a map of Vancouver and then flee."
