Taking Care of Business~Flat Tire

I'm a little thrown off balance this week because we have no cell or internet service so my daily routine and ways of interacting with others has been compromised.

On top of that, we realized the day after landing here, that we had a flat tire. We are not 100% sure when it happened and it's a bit scary for us to think that we drove through the terrain we did to get here on it-for no matter what length of time that was. We made it safely though so we are trying not to dwell on the what ifs.

What we've been doing instead, is spending two days driving around trying to find a replacement tire. I have not enjoyed the running around because to be frank, I hate that kind of thing. The upside has been that it has allowed us to explore in a different way than we generally do. It has been fun.

Here is the tire:
Yikes, huh? Given we are coming up on our one year anniversary and this is the first true issue we've had with the RV, we are pretty pleased with its record so far.

Living the life in sunny California!
