So we're driving along into Indiana when we started to get warnings about one of the trailer tires. We make a quick stop at the Petro and see that it's definitely leaking and going down. Make an appt with the shop, got in to park around 0100 and an appt for 0900, got in at 0800 and finished just now at 1105.

We couldn't see it at first but the tire had a nice big crack in it and it completely deflated over night. My first on the road issue and I'm amazed at these warning systems.

Anyway, all is well, appt for drop off is 1830 and we only have a couple hours to go and got some decent sleep.

Kids, I'm telling you for your own good, crack is no good.

Lawrence Taylor said that line, a man who was arrested for buying and/or possessing crack a couple years before that movie's release.
