Hiccup in the Plans

As one of my favorite fellow bloggers would say (or perhaps would have used to say), "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans." This morning (our last of a couple days of camping) we planned on waking up at reasonable time, making an awesome breakfast (pancakes, eggs, sausage links, orange juice), then heading to Traverse City for some sight-seeing. When I woke up, I found that one of our cars had a flat tire, forcing me to whip out the spare (see below) and spend the subsequent few hours remedying the situation. Obviously, our plans changed a bit, but we're now back home unpacking after a bumpy but AWESOME day. More on that (and some cool photos!) later...

The flat tire (right) replaced by the ridiculous motorcycle/bicycle-looking-50mph-maximum-speed spare tire from the trunk.
Not wanting to push it, I never took it over 45.

Seriously...that's the tire on the rim? At first I thought you were showing the regular tire sitting next to the brakes of the car...didn't even recognize there was an itty bitty tire on! No wonder you didn't want to push it-there was hardly anything there to push!

What a bummer! Maybe next weekend? Can't wait to see pictures of Traverse City! I've only been once and I was really young. (Yes, I'm a horrible Michigander.)

And thanks for the link! :)
