We got a decent start today. Had everything packed, slides and awning in, and deisel warmed up by 9:30. We parked the rig on the storage lot and by 10 we were headed to Gainesville, trading driving positions every hour. We thought this would deter boredom. We left a day early in anticipation of bad weather. Good thing we did. BOOM! At 3 o’ clock the right front tire simply blew a hole in the side. Not an issue. Finding the tools and then lowering the spare doughnut proved to be a major undertaking given the car was packed with holiday gifts. In a half hour the doughnut was mounted and we pulled off just north of Savannah after Robin fired up here I Pad and found a tire shop. Lo and behold, they had no 20 inchers. So here we sit in a Knights Inn while awaiting two new tires by morning. Good thing we’re in no hurry.
