My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

No Pretty Pictures
This happened about 2 miles from the dungeon. Sure glad it waited until then because it was a straight lever part of 118. Could have been real bad coming down or going up one of the steep winding mountain roads! Anyway that pretty well does in my trip to Alpine tomorrow because the only spare I have has some of the steel belts showing through and I don't want to take a chance on having another blowout between here and there without a spare. Matter of fact I'm not too comfortable about making it the 18 miles back to Study Butte to try and find a tire there or not. I don't know if the only garage there even sells tires or not? Looks like I'll be relying on the trike for a while before RN or Dale get down here. Bad part is that I doubt that these newer tires have over 3000 miles on them.
