Today was the First equipment problem.

The trailer tire was punctured by a 3/4″ long staple of some sort.

The Doctor Orange tire sealant from Voro Motors did NOT work.

Fortunately, the puncture occurred just 50 meters from the Last Chance Hotel where I had decided to stay for the night in order to catch up on my posts.

It was a VERY MESSY tire fix because of the sealant leaking out all over the inside of the tire, but the motel had a full roll of paper towels. ( Thank you, Brandee!)

After using some of my stove alcohol fuel to clean the tire and tube, the stick-on patch held.

Now it’s off to Avon, Ovando and Seeley Lake.

God is Good!
