Are you there yet?  Daddy are you there yet?  I'm imagining all the kids wanting to ride in the new car and one parent driving the van back all lonesome.

We must have brought a stomach bug with us.  The 6 year old threw up too.frown

Was it possibly a "sympathy hurl" from the 6 yr old?  As in, "he felt so bad for the 2 yr old that he chose to hurl also."  

Perhaps the 6yr was the victim of "hurl wiff"?  As in, the 6yr old caught a wiff of the 2 yr old's hurl and cause to hurl also."  

Good Luck!

For better or worse, the kids will never forget this one. 

Good luck and good health on the return trip!

One good thing about being Catholic, you can find mass just about any where in the world.  Just got out of the 9:30 Mass in Winston-Salem, NC.  Heading directly there now.

It's going to need some deep cleaning.

I was secretly hoping you'd pass on it so I could go get it. That generation of Five series is my favorite BMW ever

Craigslist quality shot.

Seems to be using too much coolant. About a quart every stop. Gauge shows temperature is ok.

Could be as simple as a crack in the overflow bottle.  I have found that the M62 responds well to Blue Devil cooling system leak sealer.  your M60 is substantially similar.

Kudos to your wife to agreeing to this road trip with five kids.  That’s quite a hike!

Home safely now.

Exhausted.

 

I'll post more later, including a link to the build thread I'm going to start. Bonus; there will be a link to an Adventure thread too, because you all have to hear "the rest of the story"

Until then, enjoy this teaser:

Glad that everyone is home safe and sound.  God bless Mrs. Indy.  That was some "quality family time", I'll  bet. 

Waiting on your updates.

In that picture the BMW looks like the offspring of the Caprice wagon and the green Saturn.

You may be related to me, we at least have similar taste in cars.  I too have a 5 series wagon and a Caprice wagon, as you know.
