This past week, we took a 2100 mile road trip. Friday morning, with our car all loaded up, off we went. We got a little past Twin Falls, Idaho (so about 2 ours into our 10 hour drive) and after hearing a sound and Mark commenting "what was that", our flat tire light came on. He pulled over and the noise of air escaping was VERY noticeable. We jumped into the car and with fingers crossed hoped we could make it into town (14 miles away). About a mile later, with a completely flat tire, we pulled onto the shoulder of a 2 lane highway as far as we could and Mark began changing the tire. Eventually we put on the spare, got into town, got a new tire (they pulled out a huge bolt that lodged into our tire) and within an hour we were back on the road. Made it to Las Vegas, Nevada by dinner time. Next morning, we went for a quick 5 mile run, had yummy breakfast and headed out for another 5 hours in the car. This time, destination...Legoland. We spent a few hours there before it closed and then came back the next day from the time the park opened until it closed. It was fun! Here are some pictures.
