Father in law had heart attack in new Mexico

Received phone call at 11am yesterday that my father in law was about to under go surgery (triple bypass). Couldn't find a flight that would arrive fast enough and with my van on its way to CCV we piled into my wife's 2013 Subaru outback. We are almost to Farmington NM, made the drive in 22hrs. When we drove threw Utah I was behind a sportsmobile, then seen 2 more this morning as we drove down 191 Moab.

Re: Father in law had heart attack in new Mexico

Good wishes headed your way.

FWIW, the high speed, long distance trip was probably better in the Subaru than the SMB.

Not sure if they can help, but I have family and friends in NM, if there's something you need.

Sorry about your father in law.

I don't understand the purpose of the other info or pics. What is CCV?

CCV = Colorado Camper Van, I believe.

Thanks all,
He is doing much better his heart has recovered well and he is now breathing on his own but he is still heavily sedated.
