And then this happened ...
A smidgen less than 2 miles from our Medford home the U-Haul trailer carrying our RAV4 developed a flat tire. The sidewall portion spontaneously disassembled allowing the tread to wander about independent of the wheel.
After nearly one thousand six hundred miles of driving I was stranded as Linda drove the RAV4 to our long anticipated destination. About 99.9% of the trip was trouble free but that last 0.1% destroyed me as I was forced to endure the scenery of the Rogue River Valley while waiting an hour for roadside assistance to put it all right. Yep, it's always the 0.1% that screw it up for the rest of us.
May all your trials and travails be so trivial and pleasant. At last, I am home at last.
