I cut down a tire and blew out the tube while at the outer banks. Luck was with me, the blow out occurred right in front of a cyclist's cottage. We both saw the tire was toast so he offered me a ride back to my cottage. That was a lucky break.
I always carry my cell so I wasn't concerned because I could have called my wife. When I returned to the cottage and told her the story she asked if I knew the phone number to our cottage.
Uhhh, the answer to that would be ummmmm, NO.
That's when I realized just how lucky I was that I hitched a ride.
