Redundancy is a beautiful thing!

Totally agree! When we evac'd Rita, we had TWO blowouts. Fix-a-flat and one spare did not help. Ideally, we'd had brought a full-size spare, the tiny spare, and Fix-a-flat (just in case of a small leak).

And, our clutch got stuck too. Didn't have the red straw/stick thingee that comes with WD-40, so DH couldn't get the spray into the area that needed it. He had me tie his foot onto the clutch pedal so he could get to a store to buy another WD-40 just for the stick. It's attached with a rubber band now (the stick, not the clutch ROFL).

You can never have enough backups...
It may seem like overkill until something gets lost, misplaced or breaks.

Thanks Bob III.

Sounds like "Murphy" was hitchin' a ride with you.

Next time you have to evacuate because of a hurricane...leave him

Thanks Shreela.
