September 20-21, 2010 – Traveling in Missouri, Arkansas and Texas

We took off Monday morning and didn’t even make it to the interstate before we had another blow out! We were able to pull into the driveway of the local Pepsi distributor where Rex took off the tire and went to the tire store where we bought the tire last week. They didn’t have one in stock and it would take a couple of days to get one. Rex came back to the 5th wheel and we were discussing that we really didn’t want to travel very far without a spare when a very nice man stopped and asked us if we needed help. He called a tire store close by and they had a tire. Instead of just giving Rex directions to the tire shop, he had Rex follow him in the Jeep to the store. Unfortunately we did not get his name but appreciated his help. With a 2nd new tire we were on our way.

It was too hot to camp without electricity to run the air conditioner so we stopped at a very nice RV park in Hot Springs, AR called Cloud Nine RV Park. It was in a heavily wooded area and had a nice trail through the woods where we walked the dogs. The next day, while getting diesel in Malvera, AR, Rex noticed that another tire looked like it was getting ready to blowout. We drove down the street to a Wal-Mart parking lot and he took that tire off and put on our spare. After having two blowouts and another tire ready to blow we have decided that the Chinese made tires we bought in Canada were not very good. We have decided when we get to Midland, TX we will replace these last two tires. Again it was too hot to camp without air conditioning so we spent Tuesday night at the American RV Park in Corsicana, TX.
