With 6 months of parenting and 3 years of marriage under my belt, there’s a new Casey Palmer coming out to play, taking care of all the things you couldn’t pay me enough to do as a child. The Casey who’s learned to man up and do the things necessary to take care of his family, whether it’s traversing an ice-covered Toronto to pick up a new glider; converting my office into a nursery; or the various lessons one learns when they become a father.
There’s only one Casey who could fill these very big shoes without tripping — Domestic Casey.
Last summer, that very same Casey bought his very first vehicle with his wife, knowing despite living in a city whose transit system connects everything, a baby on the way changed the game, and we weren’t about to brave the rush hour sardine can subway rides with a stroller. G2 in my wallet and a 2011 Ford Edge on the driveway, those wheels came with a new sense of freedom, giving me access to experiences I’d never have otherwise.
But that freedom comes with a price.
Vehicle ownership comes with general upkeep, annual maintenance, hidden costs, mistakes that make you wish you’d read the manual, and mechanics that make you wish you’d got a second opinion. If you want your wheels to last, you’ve gotta take care of them, and that’s where Armor All reached out to lend me a hand!
