fortunately the wheel stayed in the opening so bus could be pulled off the road. if it had came out and club bus had dropped down on left front drum it could have made a mess @ 60-65 mph we were doing at the time. it made us late to hook up with Sue. there were 11 buses from Ralph's. 12 after Sue joined up.
i had a scissors jack and joe flair had a lug wrench.got the wheel on and checked the other 3 just in case. no harm done to bus. Keith probably had to change chonies,but i did not look to see.

I think the few remaining hairs on his head turned gray, too. That was some scary stuff just watching it unfold in front of me.

"Don't know much about history. Don't know much biology. ..." Having BTDT, and driven some vehicles "other than my own", I'll say this much. I'd have check it thoroughly before taking a long drive. Matter'O'factly, the CB was having some engine issues in January and not having time to diagnose and fix before hand, I opted not to risk the drive to Havafew. But that's just me. I hope he got to throw away them skivvies. I would not want to save them! ;-)
