|BB Girl playing in Pépère's truck before they leave|
Their plan is to stop at the Costco in Red Dear. Our truck is ready to go at around 1530ish. We don't get out of there until at least 1600. Justin tried to negotiate some sort of discount on our gigantic bill but nothing! That's what happens when you are not home. We head on over to the campsite, hook up the trailer and get on our way. We have about a 3.5 hour drive to get to Calgary. We see my parent's and my uncle's rig from the road parked in Costco in Red Dear, so we have caught up with them. We decide to keep going to try and get to the campsite early and pray that the overflow still had room. BB Girl is not happy with that plan and with reason - it's time for us to stop and have some supper. We pull over at a rest area and start supper. Not soon after, someone knocks at our door. A nice man asks us if we knew that we had a flat tire! He has got to be kidding!!!! Another flat tire!!!
When they get there, Justin is still on the phone trying to arrange a tow truck. He decides to tell the lady that he will call back if he needs help. Uncle Bernie pulls out his air hose (what does he not have in that Coach!), and that's when Justin realises that it's not just a hole, the tire is ripped apart in the back. Dad, uncle Bernie and Justin try to figure out a way to change the tire. They decide to jack up the trailer by pulling ahead and raising it with our orange blocks that we usually use to level the trailer. Mon oncle has a tire iron in his coach(mansion) so we are set.
