We finally got home at 5am. We purchased new trailer tires Friday as soon as we arrived at SLO just for peace of mind. They turn out to be too wide and rubbed. Fifty miles outside of town we had two flats and only one spare. Not that two spares would have helped. A tow truck took us 30 miles to one of the few tire shops open Sunday and we got a new set of tires. It was a $500 tow fee but there was nothing else we could do. It turned out to be a 22 hour journey home, normally 9 or 10 hours. Hopefully Discount Tire will take care of their mistakes and reimburse us the costs.
In spite of all that, it was a great trip and we hope to go again next year. We met a lot of great people had a great time.
Thanks Robert for all your hard work and making this event a success.
Paul and Kathleen.
Sorry to hear of your travel troubles. Glad to hear you got it handled though. Your automotive insurance may take car of the tow bill since your trailer is usually covered when attached to the car. It was a pleasure to finally meet you. I wished I could have spent some more time talking with you but as event coordinator I had a few duties to tend to. Your car was just as colorful in person as it in on the computer screen.
