Now that's a flat tire.

Doh! Mission failed in a drastic way. I'm not even quite sure what happened. One sec I'm flying along at 20+, next sec my wheel is totally locked up and skidding to a stop. Something must've jammed in there and fallen back out because it's spinning fine now. Weird. Now I wait for a ride. Glad I brought my phone.

Sheesh..now that's awesome! Don't you look at what you run over :)

I didn't run over anything is the thing! After studying things for a few hours while I waited for a ride... I've decided that my seat bag broke off and happened to fall straight down where it jammed into the wheel/brake and locked up the tire. Craziest thing ever.

It's good that you had the phone. Did you call for robo-teddy or robo-mower to pick you up?

How many miles did you actually go? Hopefully closer to your goal than not!

Not close at all. :) Like 30 miles... between Homedale and Marsing it blew. Was attempting a big loop out into the edge of Oregon.

Another day...
