Anyone going?  Weather forecast is looking fantastic.

 

This will be my first time attending with a tire trailer.  I'm moving up in the world!

I didn't realize tire trailer had status. Who knew? Love my little rig, but really figured I was just too much of a broke ass to afford a dedicated track car/trailer/truck.

 

I'll be there so we can bring the real estate values down together. Weather looks perfect, but I heard they were still dealing with rivers over the weekend and even Monday. Today's rain won't help that situation but we should have a couple days drying on Thursday-Friday. Fingers crossed.

As a fellow cheap-ass, I definitely consider my dinky Harbor Freight utility trailer a status upgrade.  See you there!

The rivers were pretty bad on Sunday, little bend was treacherous.

 

I hope they get them cleared up before Saturday, hopefully that don't get much rain today.

Having had a bearing lock up on the way home from the track, I'd  say you need these in your life:

Spare tire (duh), it has saved me twice already.

Spare 25 mm bearing and seal

Only good news for me was that I locked up about a mile from a Harbor Freight and was able to get the a blown tire replaced for free. I was also able to pump some grease in and get the bearing loose and rolling enough to limp home (sweating all the way).

Great advice - thank you!  I already have the spare tire, but will definitely look into the bearings.  Seems like a small price to pay for peace of mind.
