I made a post a while ago when my power steering stopped working on the right direction only. The drive from Minneapolis to Los Angeles wasn't bad with this handicap since it was mostly highway driving. The other weekend I was out driving through mountain roads to get to a trailhead and at some point the power steering suddenly came back and has been working great for the last few hundred miles... That's sketchy!
Also, the Beater S8 made it to LA successfully (obviously at this point) without a hitch! The A/C worked wonderfully and the drive was quite comfortable after the wheel balance. Here's a pic of some nice trees in Coachella.
