Feisty truck day

I was heading over to Friends of Animals' Rescue Ranch to do some work this morning. Suddenly I feel the truck get a little squirrely and the air pressure monitor came on. I pull over to check and I had run over something big and sharp, and my tire was losing air fast.

I hopped back in and pulled over where the shoulder was fairly wide and flat. For the first time in five years, I had to dig out the manual to figure out how to unleash the spare and the jack. Twenty minutes later I was back on the road with the spare. Honda made it pretty simple for such a big tire.

Flat tires stink, but if you are going to have one, pick a nice sunny, warm day, when you aren't in a big hurry, and you have a nice flat shoulder to pull off on. It makes everything a bit more relaxing.
