On the road again

BIG rusty nail - not in a good spot, either
The guys at Graham Tire patched it for us, but had us bring the spare in and swapped out the tires/rims.  They said it would be okay for a spare, but not for regular use since the puncture was so close to the sidewall.  Sigh...   

He makes it look so easy
In the time it took me to haul the spare out of the back of the truck, roll it around, hoist it up onto the holder and re-secure it, he had the tire back on.
The boys contribution was standing at the fence whinnying at us.  Apparently they thought the trailer was getting more than its fair share of attention.  Sorry boys, no ride tonight - maybe tomorrow.

Those boys!! Just contributing their good looks!
Glad all is fixed with the trailer. Flat tires are a pain.

It's a relief to have it home - I'm just glad if we were going to hit something sharp, it happened where it did!

Must be something in the air. We were doing the same thing today :) I told Wade, had I known we'd go thru this many tires, we would have just started a tire shop. Really.

When it rains it pours - we just replaced the spare tire, too. Good timing, I guess - LOL!
