Now I'm not the superstitious type but even I know that tails indicates bad luck and I found 2, both tails up. (Does that mean double bad luck?)
After fond farewells to beloved Priest Lake, I loaded up and headed down the highway.
Forty miles from the lake I hear what sounds like a gigantic blow out and huge bump coming from the rear of my rig. The rig handles well while I pull our to the side of the road to check out the problem but I'm a mess. First I checked all four tires on my truck, Little Hoss. Every thing is as it should be. I check out the tires on the trailer, they are fine also.
Or rather what I didn't see.....
It took me a minute to realize what was missing. What you should be seeing is a spare tire and wheel mounted on the under side of the truck.
Poor little Lolita.....
I guess I'm relieved that I am still what I consider an alert driver. I was seriously doubting my driving abilities that I could have missed seeing something so large as a tire and wheel and then hit it with my trailer.
