November 19, 2014: A Flat Tire

By December 12, 2014 Uncategorized

…Coming out of our tents in the morning was a surprise. A guy who pulled over the side of the road last night, Grant, left a hot McDonald’s breakfast for us and some forks. After eating we packed our gear and set off towards the next town Arkadelphia, AR. Along the way the left tire of the jogging stroller became as flat as a pancake, and we were not really close to a town. We got a spare tire but we didn’t really know what we were doing. We had little CO2 canisters but we used them all up in the process of trying to figure it out. So we were stuck in the middle of nowhere, but right in the niche of time a young man pulled over and talked to us. He was wondering what we were doing and if we were alright. We talked with him for a while and asked if he could help us out with the tire. Thank the Lord he had a tire pump! So, he pumped it up for us and told us to give him a call if we needed anymore help. It was a blessing! After a few more people stopped to talk to us, we got into the outskirts of Arkadelphia where we had enough money to get a stay at an inn. We got to do laundry there and rest. Also someone earlier pulled over on the road and gave us food to go, it made a great dinner!
