flat on I-10 with no exits=no fun
Well, if you ever wondered what it is like to get a flat tire on the stretch of I-10 in Tucson where there are no exits and no shoulder, I can tell you it is no fun.
West bound, right where I-19 comes on, POW a catasrophic flat with the family and junk for a weekend trip in the 00 Grand Marquis.
I had no choice, I have to drive 2-5 mph for alnost 2 miles to a pull out. Friday, holiday weekend no less. I was a sitting duck. I caused a 30 minute backup! It took a wrecker forever to get there, by that time I had the tire cut from the rear axle and the spare on it already, then I had to roast the temp spare on the right rear to try to get back into traffic.
Here is hoping the rest of the weekend goes better. Stopped by a Jack Furriers and got me a new tire and on our way we went!
