Howdy my Phat phuzzy phine proggy phriends!

Yes we were out camping this past weekend. Had some fun on the drive down to Bisbee...A service truck ahead of us droped a 1 foot galvenized steel pipe in from of us. I was unable to avoid it and it cut the front driver side trailer tire clean on the sidewall. Luckily a car that was passing us at the time flagged us down to let us know the tire blew. We were able to pull right over before the tire shredded so no damage to the trailer. Because it was the driver side we didn't want to change it on the interstate so we limped it the 1/4 mile to the next offramp were there was safe room to work.

I was following a friend who pulls with a big 4 door Freightliner so he circled around and pulled in behind us. He has a really nice built in compressor so we broke out the jack, air line and impact wrench and went to work. When we went to put the spare on however, we found out the dealer had given us the wrong spare. I missed that on the PDI obviously.

I was able to reach the dealer who, luckily for us, was 30 miles back up the road from us. About an hour and a half later a service tech was out there with the right tire, we got it mounted and were back on our way.

So other than a late start to our camping trip we had a fantastic time with a great group of folks who were out there with us including our 21 yo DD.

It was, in the long run, lucky to find out about the spare so close to the dealer instead of in the middle of nowhere on our long trip to Goshen. So other than the obvious lessons here (i.e. having the right tools and checking the spare) I would encourage us all to not let misshaps dampen our trips because misshaps will happen!

OK now it's time to plan another campin trip! We have nothing booked (other than Goshen) and there's no way we aren't going campin a few times before Goshen!

Thanks!

No time to be scared really. You react and then a while later you realize it could have been alot worse.

Safe for sure...Sound??? Well that's a matter of opinion! I have always been a lil crazy and never considered sound!!
