I had to think long and hard about this. I’ve had 7 flat tires in the last 21 years! I don’t know if that’s average or not? Leading up to April 3rd – which was my birthday, I had 6 that included 2 flats between March 7th – April 2nd. That’s not average! In all of the previous 6 occurrences, help was either “right there” or at least nearby. Not this 7th time though! Nope! We were on a very remote logging road that lead to Raft Cove on NW Vancouver Island and pfft! There went the front right one!
I’ll admit, I lack in mechanical aptitude and to make a long story short, we had a lot of trouble getting the spare to drop down in my truck. Surprisingly, a young gentleman passed by and offered assistance but to no avail. He was able to get help from Holberb though. A couple hours after, a Heavy Duty Mechanic from Western Forest Products came out and everything from that point on was done and done.
The spare sits in the back of my truck now!
Western Forest Products logs in our area. I’ve found the people who work for WFP to be very friendly and helpful. We use their barge ramps and docks on the lake for our barge and quad rides and camping trips. One guy even came over to the cabin to give us maps and information we needed to find two special trees up on Goat Island. – Margy
