Well, we made it to Oklahoma. We were racing in front of a storm so we kept going and spent the first night in Santa Rosa, NM and then got up early and hit the road the next day. We were making excellent time and beating the storm when my right front tire blew!
I was going about 75 mph in the "fast" lane when it blew. We were on a hill almost on a bridge driving on the rim and I got it pulled over on the side of the highway. It was a scary spot we were barely off the road and there was a drop off on the other side and there was tons of traffic on the road zooming by us.
There was actually many lucky things that happened. I was luckily in a good cell phone area and could call AAA. We luckily didn't roll the RV. (which is what usually happens apparently from what everyone tells me) We luckily had a good spare and didn't hurt anything else on the vehicle except the tire. And luckily we got the sweetest guy to come help us change the tire and get us back on the road.
I asked him if I could take this picture of him to scrapbook and he was thrilled that I was going to scrap a page with him on it! He told me he scrapbooks!!!!! I thought at first he was giving me a hard time but he was serious. I don't think he does "fancy" scrapbooking but he does save stuff in a scrapbook. I thought that was cool.
It took about 3 hours to get back on the road but all in all it wasn't that bad if I HAD to break down.
Most of my kids have pink eye (but have meds and are looking and feeling better), my dogs is looking and feeling better on her meds, I am looking and feeling better on my meds! lol
My husband had to change his flight because of weather and didn't get here until late last night with all the rest of my kids and his mother.
So we are all here now and feeling better and hoping for a wonderful Christmas!
