The girlfriend(emily) and I just got back from picking up my RZ direct from spooky headquarters. I drove 9 hours with stops on Saturday and 14 hours today.
It was great hanging out with Charlie and Kayte for a couple hours today, checking out the shop and talking pinball. They are both great people; we had a blast.
But like everything in life it couldn't be perfect.
Just drove out of Wisconsin and a big piece of metal punctured and blew out my left rear tire.
Good thing I was a mechanic before so I knew what I was doing. Still not fun changing a tire on the left side of the highway, using a crank bottle jack. The 4runner has been oil sprayed many times so the spare was covered in dirty oil. Luckily it all went well.
Thank you again Charlie and Kayte for your hospitality cannot wait to set it up tommorow. Need sleep now.
