Guess you can't copy and paste from excel

Sorry, i had it all laid out in Excel and tried to copy and paste. If anyone really wants the list, let me know and I'll stick it in a Word doc and attach it...

It makes for interesting reading like it is...

you forgot the spare set of axles!

it might be good idea for a business. tool road service, you bring the tools and the caller rents them. think of all the fuel we could save!

This reminds me of driving from NY to Alaska in 1971 in a 1967 Land Rover. The Rover had a habit of breaking motor mounts- and being a college student I didn't carry spares. I did carry a few long bolts and a piece of retread I found on the road to improvise if necessary. Going through customs we were carefully inspected (what with being in college and the 60-70's and all). When the customs official saw the retread and bolts he asked why we had them. I explained and he commented on our "American Ingenuity" and sent us on our way.

When I had my blowout and realized the spare didn't look quite inflated and/or was losing air, I headed to the glove box in the Excursion for the pressure gage. To my surprise there were two in there. I always check my tires at home using a digital gage I keep next to the compressor. As my luck had been steadily declining I perceived this as good news, a primary and backup gage. Both gages maxxed out at 50psi, no good for trailer or TV. Down on my luck again. Not far from the campground was a discount store. Found a new presure gage and my son found a small 12v compressor for about 14 bucks - perfect I thought and even better when it rang up for only 10 and change. The 12 v cord was way too short, but there is an outlet in the rear of the truck, so with some tricky maneuvering and the folks in the adjacent site having just left (Cape Cod, they really pack 'em in, not as bad as International), the power and air hose just reached. After about 15 minutes and very little increase in pressure on the installed gage, the airhose blew right off the discharge of the compressor. Back to square one. Bottom line; tire pressure gage in the correct range and I'd also like to have a small compressor, I think 12v vs 120v would be more versatile, opinions?
