My personal thanks to Nate & Jeff & Ricardo & Ricardo's son & everyone else who helped out in my time of need. Amazing what a PITA 1 misplaced pebble can cause. My lessons learned from this trip are:
1-Get the 40 running so I don't have to take a very large and heavy truck wheeling
2-When I have to take aforementioned truck wheeling, dont be a DA and leave half the tire chains at home, thus causing me to air down the unchained front tires which resulted in losing a bead when clobbering a rock
3-Put a cork in the tube to the spare tire mechanism so little pebbles cant get in it and become a huge PITA
4-Really appreciate all of the fine folks in the club knowing you wouldnt be left behind no matter what happened. The pizza and company afterwards were great too!
