Not On The Road Long......

This should be interesting as for a few minutes I was typing this blind. I couldn't see a thing. Finally figured out what I was doing wrong though and now things are perfect.

Not so perfect with the car though. On the way to Kurt's place, just between Medicine Hat and Brooks we developed a problem. Not an insurmountable problem, but one that in all our years of travel we have not encountered.

We got a flat. Yep, just an old fashioned flat. Happened on the Trans Canada too.

We found the perfect place to pull over, but had a problem locating the jack and wrenches. Neither of us could exactly remember where they were located. My recollection a bit better than Harvey's after about 10 minutes searching all was located.

Next we lowered the spare from under the vehicle, expecting to see the full sized tire we requested, or at least asked the salesman about (he assured us that with what we were paying for said vehicle the spare was a full size).

It was the small donut that descended into our sight.

Changed the tire and carried on. Now just to find someone to fix or replace the tire and we will be able to finish our journey.

Everybody have a wonderful day.

God bless.

I hope that you got the tire fixed, Jackie. My car has one of the donut spare tires, too, and I wish it was a full-size tire.

Enjoy the rest of your trip.
