2013 Infiniti JX35: Wyoming Adventures Part 3 -- Where Men Are Men and Roads Are Gravel
August 17, 2012
"Welcome to Wyoming." That's what the sign says. What it should say is this: "Welcome to Wyoming Where There Are Two Seasons: Winter and Road Construction."
This is a typical Wyoming highway in August. You see, with only about three months to work on the highways and nine months of freeze/thaw cycles to destroy them, the state is riddled with this nonsense all summer.
It's still worth it.
But this time it cost us a windshield.
This started as a chip in the top left corner of the windshield. But the state's wildly flunctuating temperatures (40 to 100 degrees in 24 hours on our trip) made the crack spread like wildfire.
We're currently sourcing a windshield, but the JX is so new that our local Infiniti dealer can't get us one until the end of the month of the begining of next month. We're investigating other options and will let you know the what, when and how much as soon as we sort it out. It's not going to be cheap.
