What a terrible time to get a flat.
Heading back to North Battleford after visiting the Crooked Bush, we were enjoying the sunset when the rear driver’s side tire blew.
The funny thing was, this trip was by far our least dangerous journey. On all of our other WVO road trips, we ended up driving on crazy remote gravel and slate roadways into the bush, and the authorities always recommend bringing two extra full-size spares. To play it safe, we usually bring three spares. But since we knew this trip to Fort McMurray would result in some of the safest and paved roads in the history of our WVO trips, I thought two spares would be enough.
Well, not that this tire blew up, we only had one spare left on the upcoming 2000 miles of driving. We thought that should be good, for now…
