" You just Passing through?"
" Well there is a place just up the road here we can get a free meal starting at 11:30 if your interested."
I politely declined but it would of been a much better story if I had accepted the offer.
My tire was beginning to lose a few lugs but was still working ok and holding air. I guess to 900 miles at 70+ mph was more than it could handle.
So I headed East to possibly go Pikes peak in the morning.
