Joe wasn't there, just his boy with his automotive class from school, which impressed the hell out of me. I'm glad schools still have automotive classes and field trips.

I like to go visit school teams when I know that they are participating...

Well, it seems that Lady Luck may have taken us on a bit of a detour...

Luckily, only the tread came off, leaving the carcass still inflated sufficiently to allow us to get off the freeway (the Pasadena 210, near Upton, CA), and change the tire in a bank parking lot...

Enjoying the cool of Big Bear today, where we were lucky enough to find a tire shop with enough new tires to make us feel good about trying to cross the Mojave tomorrow...

I feel for you Steve. We blew a tire on our trailer just after going over a RR crossing just outside of Hawthorne, NV. Blew so badly it bent the rim! Anyway, we bought 3 new tires in Fallon NV. The Nevada Desert along 95 is a lonely place! Makes the Gila Bend- Yuma run look positively crowded!

Thankfully it stayed together enough that it didn't damage the trailer.
Also thankfully, Conan the Barkariian, (I love that name) has his own driver/mechanic along on his great adventure.
Safe travels!

Thanks Tim & Jim... We're headed across the Mojave on CA-62 from Twentynine Palms to Parker tomorrow, and I was not looking forward to attempting that stretch on potentially bad old tires...
