What's a roadtrip without a flat tire
Indiana doesn't like us. We pulled over for our regular 200 mile gas fillup and when I walked to the front of the truck Iheard a hissing sound. My first fear was that we were overheating. It turned out we were leaking air from the tire valve stem. We have a spare no big deal right ? Wrong ! It took us 30 minutes to figure out where the darn Jack and tire iron were hidden in the truck. Then the tire iron won't fit on to remove the aftermarket hub caps so we ripped it off. Finally get the tire changed and go into Hardees for some breakfast. There only serving microwaved burgers so we skipped that. Tried to get and ice cream out of the vending machine. It was out of order. Then we missed the on ramp to I 80. Spent 1/2 hour driving in circles trying to get back to the highway. Chalk it up to lack of sleep.
