Sometimes there are advantages to camping at Walmart, and this is one of these times.
My tire adventures continue. After a day spent in and around Nanaimo, I noticed another low tire on the same side as the last flat tire. I pumped the tire up with my air compressor, but it still lost half it’s pressure in a few hours ;-(
I must have driven over something sharp somewhere on the logging road or around the Horne Lakes Campground that got both tires at the same time.
It was a Sunday and the tire centre was not open when I first checked in the morning, but they were open later so I dropped the tire off for repair. Unfortunately, they deemed it not repairable, with a cut in the sidewall. A quick trip across the parking lot to get the spare, and they installed it on the aluminum rim, while the non-fixed tire was put on the back as an emergency spare, since it still holds air for a while.
Fortunately, Hailey decided she would pose for some photos to fill all the empty space in this post.

And having a serious fight with a toy she got from the late Ms S, a very special cat who recently passed on.

After this we’re heading back to the south end of the island to visit some more friends before heading back to Alberta.
