New Tires in Iowa

2019 West Again, Iowa, Road Trip, States

This morning we visited Freedom Tire in Ames and got new tires for Eric the Red, our 2008 F-150. Our last safety check indicated that we should be replacing tires fairly soon but something told us to do it sooner rather than later.  Apparently we did it none too soon. The technician told us that one of the tires had already begun separating.  Back at the house our favorite barista  made us some fabulous coffee drinks, we confirmed Pam & Mike’s plans to visit Tween Creeks later this month, and made our visit to Iowa official when Mike placed the sticker on Sc@rlett.  We’re now back on the road with four Goodyear Wranglers and a greater sense of confidence in our truck.  Adventure awaits!

A string of unexpected problems complicated our transition from Southampton to Haarlem but calm problem solving and a sense of adventure led to unpredicted delights and a story for the ages.
