A few weeks ago, we realized the Ramcharger had cracked a head and we didn't think replacing the engine (again) was a sound financial investment. So we decided to donate it to the National Kidney Foundation. We took part of a day to clean it out (it had been a reserve for empty bottles and cans, years of newspaper, dirty socks and sweatshirts, and pennies and Uno cards).
It was sad to realize our old friend was going to part ways with us. But with a new XTerra and the reliable Honda, there was just no need for the Ramcharger to stick around. Still, it was upsetting. Today, I watched as the guy came to tow it away, and was glad I had at least taken some photos to remind myself of the good times we had.
