We left Ticonderoga at 6:15 this morning and drove a good share of the day as our plans were to spend some time in Hershey, PA. We were about 45 minutes from Hershey, PA when we got a flat tire on our rental car. How about that - we bicycled over 2000 miles and the only flat tire we got this year was on our trailer and then we get a rental car that has less than 10,000 miles on it and we get a flat tire. The car had a good spare so John replaced it and while he was doing that I spent the time trying to get a hold of Hertz to see where we could pick up another spare tire. Well, after pressing, 1, 2, etc, etc. I finally got someone on the line and they said we couldn't get a spare tire we would have to go to the nearest Hertz office and pick up a different rental car. So we ended up driving another 2 hours to the Hertz office and spent about 1-1/2 hours there just exchanging the car and unloading our bike and everything else and repacking it in another car. By then it was really to late and we were already passed Hershey so we just continued on and got a hotel in Breezewood, PA.
We went to Subway for dinner and then to the laundromat to wash clothes. Tomorrow morning we are going to go to 10:00AM mass and then take our time driving to Pickerington, Ohio to spend two nights with Marilyn and Gary Solomon!
Won't be long now and we will be home!
