As we were returning to camp Thursday night I heard the grinding of front brakes. Friday morning Jay “McGuiver” Mosteller and I tore into the brakes. Pads were shot and one rotor was needing replaced. If taken to a shop, this repair would have set us back $400 plus. How good is God? Check this: My Pops (who owns said van) had purchased lifetime pads at Autozone. A quick trip and we had new pads, for free. Shawn Foster was with us on the trip. Shawn is an assistant manager with O’Riley Auto parts in the Haute. A quick call and Shawn hooked us up with his discount. Total bill for new brake pads, rotors, seals, and labor? About 75 bones. Cha-ching.
