holy moly, my brakes go out, I could've died and I'm stranded
I'm back... I've been stranded in the mountains of NC for a bit. I went up there to shoot my first wedding. As soon as I get there my brakes go out, (the seals in the Master Cylinder). I'm approaching a line of cars about 4 deep that have come to a stop next ot Tweetsie Railroad, traveling aprox 50mph, the traffic is heavy in the oncoming lanes, there is steep embankment on the right. I panic and forget the emergency brakes and pump frantically at the pedal. I finally get pressure and start decelerating at about 6 pumps in. I make it to a pay phone cuz my cell service is no good up there. That is on Friday, I finally get my car towed in on Saturday, they tell me my car will be ready Monday, they get the wrong part and I'm stuck til Tuesday. I miss 3 deadlines and am put behind on 5 assignments. But at least I'm still alive and kickin' arse.
