Remember my comment about how we didn’t think any pieces were falling off the van??? Well…I was wrong. The lug nuts were loose and falling off the right front tire. We heard a strange noise and had thought we would make it to Phoenix but no luck. So as we were heading south on Thursday we had to pull over in Cottonwood AZ. NO WORRIES…we are all fine.
We were lucky …the tire didn’t come off… we were able to pull off safely…we had cell phone service… AAA was there in an hour…A good garage was 12 miles away…with a hotel in walking distance
We were back on the road the next day. We made it to Phoenix and got to see the Heard Museum and Desert Botanical Gardens. Jim left this morning and his flight should be leaving soon.
We are heading to Colorado with a quick stop to pick up my credit card and driver’s license where I left it in Cape Verde (hotel near Cottonwood). Don’t ask!!! 🙂
Fingers crossed for smooth sailing the rest of the way!
