It all stared with me heading out to get Tires for the trip. I went to the local Tire distributor and after 2 phone calls over 2 days confirming they had my tires in stock, told me it would take about 4 hours to complete. I was running an hour late and wanted to be on my way to AC at this point. I wound up leaving there and calling House of Tires in Levittown, NY. They had me in and out in under an hour and replaced both tires. They also have a good reputation in the area, so I may use them as a mechanic. In fact, one of the guys who used to work for my mechanic is there now. I left there, hit the car wash which was right next door, and took off..On to JaypoCON 2005!
