Noise What Noise

There's a rather loud noise eminating from the hood of the van - Ting, ting, ting... Jack says what's that noise? In denial, I reply "noise, what noise"? And press forward hoping it will just go away, because I hate working on the van and goodness knowsi it's expensive having a shop repair it. Eventually the sound subsides and we are cruising along great when I notice we are running a little warm and not charging. Oh no that means we probably lost an alternatort belt. Sure enough what's left of it is wrapped around the motors cooling fan. It"s 8:30pm and I need an auto parts store now to make the Canandaigua, NY Phish concert. We locate a Pep Boys via our Garmin GPS we get there with just 10 minutes to spare. I ended up giving the Mechanic a $20 tip on top of the bill just to have him stay late and fix the van. Everything went good and we are back on the road to see Phish.
