Operation DIY

So this is how it all went down.
I knew I couldn't take one more day having my car stationary on N. 26th st.
I had sought out the help of a few good samaritans, but nothing would work.
I gave it one last ditch effort.
And success.
I was the hero of my own story.

I secured the car share for the day for sales...
But-I thought to myself, "while there is a spot in front of my car, I might as well take advantage of it, and try to jump my car MYSELF, with a carshare car."

There was definitely some maneuvering involved. I had to drive the car the wrong way on a one way street (first time I actually did this on purpose). Luckily no other wheels were one the road and I was able to sandwich myself perfectly.

I attached the positive and negative cables following the instructions. I waited about three minutes after starting the Scion's engine, and tried to start mine. vrooom vroom vroom.

The car was a go-go.
I was ecstatic.
I never would have thunk I could do something like that.
Operation do it yourself was a success!

Somebody pour me a beer...
