And POW, there went the tire
Friday, March 05, 2010
Riding down I 80 in Wyoming today, 60 mph or so, I blew a steer tire; It was fairly non exciting, more frustrating than anything, as I was past the truckstop by 13 miles and had to wait on the service truck;
Any who dont know, losing a steer tire can be rather dangerous, especially on a semi. I was blessed today as to be on fairly dry road, and lightly loaded and no head or sidewind blowing me at the time.
Otherwise, there have been no stressful events lately. We got a car a month ago, which was stressful enough, but mom is happy so I did good!
Son having some issues with his driving partners, is home driving a dump truck while the powers that be make up their minds.
Still working on the laptop situation..found a place to geta used one, just a matter of the cash available; Girls r all doing well in school. Older one turning 16 in April..I dont know if I'm ready for either of them to be 16.. it's a dad thing.
She will probably be out with me in April after her birthday for her semi -annual ride. Little sis isnt the road warrior, and may not go this year, but I need to get home more nyway, income permitting;
Better run folks..this is Wyoming and its just March and as I came in i was trying to S___ on me(the white flaky stuff).
