After arriving at the halfway point, one of the riders discovered a huge hole in her tire (the tube had been replaced on the road) and needed a new tire. Fine, no problem. Except that the SAG was still out on the road supporting other riders so we had to get a tire out of the trailer. Guess what? The tires are stored behind all the luggage. So Nancy, Carol and I unpacked all the luggage, got the tire and then reloaded all the bags. Quite a few people seem to be pushing the 30lb limit pretty hard. But we got it all in again.

So now we are in Globe for the night and going out to a Mexican restaurant for supper. More adventures await tomorrow.
