A Road Trip and a Visit

Yesterday, I found myself headed south on I-5 toward Eugene, OR, home of the University of Oregon and the Oregon Ducks, for a workshop that I was to present to a local school district. I left early due to some heavy fog and arrived about 1.5 hours ahead of schedule. I did what any girl in a strange city would do with an extra 1.5 hours on hand and headed to the mall. After some shopping and an early lunch, I decided to Google the car dealer from which I’d ultimately bought my new car. I don’t think I ever did tell you where I bought it, but you’ll find it very fitting. I bought my car from Kendall Lexus of Eugene. They’re part of the Kendall Auto Group.

I bought my car through the local Autoland broker, so I had no idea when they told me they had found me a car where it was going to come from. It could’ve been as close as Lexus of Portland or from any of the Lexus dealers in the Seattle area. I knew it was meant to be when the Kendall delivery truck drove up to the credit union later that day.

It turns out that Kendall Lexus was right across the street from where I was having lunch. I gave my contact a call and went over to meet him and to thank him for making it such an easy car buying experience. Thanks, Brian!

Kendall and I love her/our new ride. It’s a CT200h with all of the bells and whistles. It made that 222 mile ride go by in no time.
