We join are intrepid Explorer as he attempts to find a means of transportation, in his quick plan to get back home
“Right…So I’m in Halifax? And where exactly would Halifax be?” Tom said
“Gee, you really are touristy, Halifax is a County in Montana!” replied the man.
“Montana?! Are you kidding me? I live in New Jersey!”
“Well, you chose a good place to take a vacation then, my good man!”
“I…ok, I lost my car, do you think you know where I could get one?” Tom said, he didn’t exactly feel like telling the man that he just appeared in Halifax.
“Of course! Theres a great dealership down the road, and if your short on money, go down to the local Diner, theres always a guy willing to make a deal there.”
“Allright, thank you sir!” Tom said
“You’re welcome…but how can you lose your car?” replied the man.
“Um…long story! Goodbye kind man!” And with that, Tom set off down the street.
It was a short walk, probably two blocks (Although ‘blocks’ aren’t exactly the most accurate form of measurement when a street block is the size of a farm) Before Tom arrived at the car dealer. “Cyan Car Dealers” said a large sign on the front. Tom walked into the office and met up with an associate.
“Why, howdy there, looking for a car?” the associate said welcomingly.
“Yes…what’s the cheapest car you have?” Tom replied.
“Well, theres our Ford EconoCar, it runs about $5000, standard model. Say, are you from around here? I don’t think I’ve seen you before.” The associate said.
“I’m not exactly from around here, you see I lost my car, and $5000? I can’t…I can’t possibly do that, do you really have anything cheaper?” Tom was at a loss, he may need to find a car from someone at the Diner.
“Nope, sorry sir, but that’s our cheapest, it’s even used.”
“Well, thanks anyway, and have a nice day!”
“You too! Good luck, maybe you’ll find your car again!” the associate said goodbye.
Tom won’t be ‘finding his car’ anytime soon, so he continued walking, and started walking into the more industrial part of town.
He passed by what he presumed was the major power plant of the area, and the sky was turning slightly brown.
Soon though, Tom reached the Diner, and stepped inside. The Diner was pretty well lit, and he stepped up to the counter, right next to an old man with a long beard, Indiana Jones style hat, and a satchel.
The waitress came up to Tom and asked him what he would like, and Tom replied with
“Just a Coke, thanks”
The old man turned towards Tom, and squinted his eyes.
“Your not from around…are you?” The Old man was very suspicious.
“Uh…yes, I...I got lost” Tom replied
“Why! You’re lost? Why didn’t you say so! Do you need anything?” In an instant, the old mans eyes lit up, and he got very exicted.
“Yeah…I mean, I sort of, lost my car.”
“No worry! My name’s Andy” Andy said.
“Great, my names Tom”
“Look, I got an old beat-up pickup I’ve been meaning to get rid of, what do you say? Would you like it?” Andy was very excited now.
“Sure! How much?” Tom replied, he was very surprised at his luck.
“Well, I’ll tell you what, it still works, so I’ll take $600 for it! We don’t get very many wanderers in this town, its always nice to meet one!” Andy said.
“Great! But…I don’t exactly have $600, I only have $500.” Tom was worried he might not be able to get a car.
“Is that so? I’ll tell you what, if you can deliver this letter to a friend of mine, I’ll take your $500!” Andy replied.
“That’s great! Thank you!” Tom got his Coke to-go and started off. The Address on the letter read ‘26 State St.’, and halfway across town Tom forgot to ask where that was.
After a while of asking around, Tom finally arrived.
It was a small corn field, and when Tom knocked on the door to the house nearby, a voice from inside yelled out
“What is it?! I’m busy with Project Runway!”
“Um, yes, I have a letter from Andy” Tom said.
“Andy? Great! Lets see!”
A man opened the door, he seemed to be in his 20’s, and very well dressed…in pink.
“Great! Did Andy send you?”
“Indeed he did! Say, are you the farmer for this field?” Tom asked.
“Yes I am! I know, I don’t look like one, because , someday, I want to become a designer!” The man said.
“That’s…great to know! But listen, I gotta run, the day is wearing on and I need to get back to Andy.” Tom said, looking around.
“Oh, of course! Here, take this to Andy, its for the letter.”
“Have a good day!”
And with that, Tom returned to the Diner.
“Here, I delivered the letter, and this man told me to give you this.” Tom handed a piece of paper to Andy.
“Great! Lets head back to my house!” Andy said.
It took a good half-hour of walking, until Tom arrived and Andy’s house, behind him.
Andy’s house was…Run-down, to say the least. It was nestled on the bank of a small stream, and was a 1-story log cabin. On the front lawn (or what there was of one) there were quite a few trucks, one of which Andy stepped up to.
“Well, here she is, a beauty, huh?” Andy said.
“Yes…sure” Tom replied
“You can take her for a test run, just to see if everything is running smoothly.”
And so Tom did, just around the block. Everything seemed to be in order, even though the truck occaisionally sputtered, and the stick shift wasn’t in the best shape. So Tom handed over $500 in cash, a pain for him, since he was going to deposit this in a bank when he got transported to Halifax. Andy handed over the keys, they both bid goodbye, and Tom was off!
“By the way, which way to New Jersey?” Tom said, out his truck
“I think you head…through the town…that Should be the way” Andy pointed down the road
Soon enough though, Tom came upon a fork in the road, to the north, there was…
the coastline, which the road seemed to follow, and to the West there was…
Just a lone road, and lots of pine trees. Tom didn’t know which way to take, so he pulled over and thought about it long and hard.
This is where you can Vote!
Tom seems to be lost. Maybe he should’nt have listened to Andy. Oh well! Where should Tom go? North, or West? Also, any suggestions on what Tom should do?
Also, pardon me for the lack of photos, I think I’ll have to make it up with extra photos in the next update! Have a good week everyone! Also, pardon me, as I'm still feeling out how this CJ will play out through multiple updates, at this point it can be imagined that i'm sort of stumbling along, and so the sort of oddly put-together update. If you guys have any suggestions for this CJ, that would be great! Also, I think future updates will be much more composed, compared to this one.
