A bad ride....
The rain cleared out, my window for my ride opened up.
11 miles down the road I was passing by a collection of buildings that specialize in scrap metal, salvaged cars, and whatever other garbage they can sell/recycle. Of course there is the one place that has the dozen angry dogs out front that I have to move past quickly.
...except this time i didn't seem to be able to get moving like I normally do, wind was low, strength was there, something was wrong.
Remember that scrap metal, yeah I probably should have chosen my path better, nail pierced my less than 1 week old back tire, and it was flat.
Having to call the wife to come pick me up (no repair kit or skills yet for tires) was humiliating.
