The recent ICE mishap....

Dang, a couple of nites ago, I was leaving for Reno/Sparks area, (never made it), & I was on a 'highway' that was covered in black ice & snow (go figure )etc, when I hit a NICE icy spot that sent my rear to the OTHER side of the hwy. When I saw the rock wall & hit the rut, I yanked the steering the other way, felt the tire blow & heard that lovely hiss & a loud bang as I slid all the way back to my ide back off the
road, conveniently () in the only open area for the next 1 1/2 miles.
This was the result......

Wow. That SUCKS. Hope you get it all worked out. Any stretch of highway out there can be pretty nasty. Something similar like this happened to me out near Donner Lake a few years back. I was in my Wrangler though.

The above opinions are my own and should not be substituted for common sense.
