1/8/24 Day 100, Monday, Northshore, The Girls New Used Car

8:00 a.m. I wake up at my girlfriend’s apartment. You spend the morning getting ready for the day.

11:00 a.m. I drove over to 58 Pulaski Street to get my girlfriend’s 2003 Pilot ready for purchase. Before Felipe arrives I clean the snow off of it, and I use a cigarette lighter powered tire pump to pump up the tires. When Felipe arrives we make the deal for the car, under one condition that I can take it on the highway. The car looks like it’s in really good shape but it does rattle a little bit on the highway. The vehicle is so cheap $1,500 that I figure it’s worth it and I’ll get it fixed.

12:30 p.m. Once I have the vehicle and all the paperwork I call a mechanic in Essex and I list off all the things that need to be fixed: Hood latch, tires balanced, and a fuel leak fixed. He tells me to bring it in so I drive it over with no ride back just to get the work started. After I leave the car at the mechanics place I walk over to a restaurant and I have a hamburger. It’s going to be a while before my girlfriend to pick me up so I just began to walk more for health than to go anywhere. There’s no sidewalks so it’s dangerous and the cars are driving real close to me. Eventually I sat down on a stone wall. I text my girlfriend let her know my location, while I’m waiting for my girl, Scott calls me and tells me to come back to the shop if he wants to show me something. It seems there is a rotted out crossbar where the engine is, I looked the suspension over and I missed this rusted spot. I let Scott know that I’ll get it fixed on my own. He doesn’t have the welder or the experience to fix something like that. Scott tells me that the reason the car rattles a little is because the calipers are a bit stuck. He prices The job out for $500, this is fine especially to have a vehicle on the road where my girl doesn’t have to pay a whole bunch of money.

4:30 p.m. My girlfriend comes and picks me up and drives me back to my car at 58 Pulaski Street in Peabody. A friend of mine has donated a whole bunch of clothes for homeless people, just old clothes that don’t fit him anymore. Tell my girlfriend that I’m going to wait for him, and she heads home.

5:30 p.m. My friend arrives at 58 Pulaski Street and we transfer all the clothes into my car. I haven’t seen this friend in a long time, so we start talking about old times. My friend asked me if I wanted to get a bite to eat? I never turn down food. I jump in his new Jeep and we drive over to Jamie’s roast beef, and we just continue to talk about our life changes and old times.

6:30 p.m. After we eat my friend drives me back to my vehicle. I text my girl and let her know I’m coming over. I stopped at the supermarket and I got some cookies and ice cream for her and some drinks for the house. I’ve been trying to stay outside on weekdays but both of my camps are destroyed. I’m grateful that my girlfriend allows me to stay at her apartment for the night.

8:00 p.m. I just hung out with my girlfriend. We had a quiet night. We turn in for a bed around 11:00 p.m.
