Is this because I bragged about not having a flat on the trip to Alaska? 😀
Silver lining: it’s a lot easier to change a tire ourselves on this van when needed, versus those on our bigger motorhome or trailer, previously. A parking lot is also far more preferable to have this happen in than a blowout while driving down a busy road. The last time we changed a tire, it was for a trailer on the soft gravel shoulder of a busy highway, on a very hot day in middle-of-nowhere central Oregon.
We’d love to hear some other tire stories — feel free to share yours in the comments!
(Please also ignore how dirty our van is – it’s been a while since the weather was nice enough to give poor Gandalf the Grey a well-deserved bath!)
