Yes Steve. Those are the kissing flamingos that we got at out first rally in Blanco. They look great! Don't they?

If anyone is looking for a last minute excursion for the weekend, just give me a holler. I can sponsor anyone to camp here at the Army's premier power projection base, Ft Hood, Texas. The GREAT place!

New tires!

Yesterday I bought four new Michelin LTX M/S2 tires for Abby. I mounted them on her last night. She looks great with Michelins!

Hmmm!

Hmmm! Those tires sure look familiar! Not that a certain member might have help persuade me to go the same route. Good luck on your trip, Hope you have fun and no tire problems.
By the way only 4? What about a spare? Never know what may happen.

Lance you really know how to treat a lady. 2 pairs of brand new shoes for her feet look good and they're French (Michelin) imported designer (white letter)foorwear to boot.
Have a good time on your long summer trip and safe journeys after all the hard work you did to make her what she is today you deserve the vacation.
I'm on staycation for the summer and can only dream about travelling with mine.
Bon voyage and of course ya'll come back real soon.

Thanks guys!
I have a 7.00x15 bias ply trailer tire for a spare. Besides, my manual says I can tow with one wheel off at 30mph for up to fifty miles!

So does that mean that if you keep changing the position of the flat you could go 200 miles. There are some places in west Texas there is not a service station for 50 miles.

A couple of years ago I was delivering a trailer to Timmins Ontario, and when I turned on the only road between Sudbury and Timmins there was a sign telling me that there was no service station or gas for the next 160 miles.
You'd have to change the flat around four times to make that trip.

Thanks very much guys.
The first night we arrived at Palo During Canyon State Park 22 min after closing time so we had to boondock in the "late arrival" area. Luckily it was cool and breezy. My oldest son found a nice bull snake on the way back from the showers. The canyon was beautiful.
