Finally made it home, though I should have taken the 173 :rolleyes:. GREAT run :thumbsup:. Hope your truck's OK boomer (no carnage, just an unknown ailment). Pics later.

...And my vote for the most proficient driver of the day goes to all three (although I didn't need a strap, and nothing fell off my truck)...:p:

Cholla

Addendum:

Who would have thought running over Cholla and Barrel cactus would cause slow tire leaks :confused:? ;) The guy at the tire place said I probably have a dozen tiny holes in my right rear tire, but only one mattered: the one in the sidewall :mad:. Oh well. The good thing is it's only losing a pound or so a day, so it's fix-a-flat time until I cough up the bucks for a new tire.

I've been waiting for mine to start leaking, but thankfully nothing yet...strangely all the ones I haven't pulled out seemed to have been swallowed up by the tires...:confused:

See, that was my mistake. I only noticed the leak AFTER Rachel decided we should pull the remaining spines out of the tires. So, I guess I can say it's her fault for pulling the cactus out rather than my fault for running over them in the first page :p:.
