Yesterday was the day the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid arrived. As you recall, I won a week’s use of one as part of the DrivingtheSoutheast.com blogging contest associated with SheCon, the Social Media Conference. I’ll have the vehicle for a week and beginning tomorrow, I’ll be venturing throughout Central Florida experiencing something new. I hope.
Yesterday driving it home, it felt as though I was driving with the emergency brake and some light came on – a triangle with a car and skids. I called On-Star to diagnose it and they didn’t find anything wrong but suggested I take it to the dealer.
After doing a Google search, it could be something or it could not be. Today will determine my next move. Remember my experience with my hybrid?

She spent a decade with a park management company in Yellowstone, Death Valley, and Everglades National Parks. She founded the travel blog, SoloTravelGirl.com with the goal of inspiring others to travel alone, not lonely.

Driving through Western Pennsylvania’s rolling farmland, I held back tears thinking of the afternoon’s destination, the Flight 93 National Memorial. Almost 20 years later, the thoughts of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, still trigger deep emotions.
Reading inspires adventure. After reading “The Orchid Thief” by Susan Orlean earlier this year, visiting Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park became a priority. I finally stepped foot in Florida’s largest state park and soon realized, I’ll need to make a return visit or two.
