new alternator for the nissan

here are the pictures telling the saga of a dying nissan. the alternator was dying in the car for so long and so subtly that we just assumed we needed a new battery. josh took a stab at changing his first car battery, and did a magnificent job. unfortunately, that didn’t do the trick and the car died when jahnna was driving it on the interstate in tennessee. luckily, we were close to the exit and were able to coast into the gas station.

then jahnna’s dad and her dad’s brother-in-law, nick, made a really valiant attempt at trying to fix the car by changing the battery cables. that didn’t work either. so we had to have it towed to the garage in lebanon, tennessee. but we were back on the road tuesday evening.
