Broke down!

About 1 hr into my 5 day trip my van decided to shut down on the 10 east. I'm fairly certain it's the fuel pump. Called the nearest repair place with the best yelp reviews, they said they've changed a bunch of these fuel pumps before.

I just had to tell someone might be camping at an auto repair shop now!

Bummer. Hope it is a quick repair. A number of years ago we had the rear main seal fail in the middle of a trip. Not fun to lose a couple of days on a nine day trip.
