Loaded up the Hercules and driving to Yuma Az! First pic is at Dry Falls in Washington, heading south toward Soap Lake. Then the fun started - blew a tire on the trailer, being a couple old farts, we didn't even notice until someone drove by and yelled as us, pointing at the trailer
Crawled back into Soap Lake 1/2 mile and popped it off - of course we forgot to bring a spare, had to go to Les Schwab 5 miles away to buy a new tire and wheel. While I was doing that, a local rodder stopped by, talked to my bud that stayed with it and brought a spare he got from a buddy, floor jack , then went back with us to Les Schwab in Ephrata Wa. Super great dude, his buddy stopped by too, they have small car club - everybody seemed to know each other, the classic good 'ol small town thing, car guys are the same all over, so great to connect with other like minded people and make new friends! Got into Boise Idaho 4 hrs late, crashed out and boogied to St George Utah today - ahhh, palm trees and sunshine!
Heading out tomorrow to Yuma Az , more road pics to come...

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

With a well set up tandem axle trailer, it is hard to tell when a tire blows unless you see it. I did the same thing years ago. A buddy that left after me and was catching up, pulled up beside me and gave me the word. Pulled over and changed it and never looked back. I did notice when I went to stop however, as my surge brakes were on the axle that had the flat.

My buddy Al came with me to Yuma for some of that southern sun, been driving the Herc around town - seems like everything is working OK, it likes the desert air
And a Yuma sunrise
