Blowout in Provo turns into good fortune…

Had a bit of a problem today…blowout on the freeway. Fortunately I was close to a town and able to exit safely onto a side road in order to change the tire. I later discovered that the tire could not be repaired (tread separation).

With the spare on, I worked my way up to Provo, UT where I would need to wait until morning for Discount Tire to open…I’m hoping the tire will be warranty replaced.  I ended up finding a wonderful old mansion turned into a B&B called: Hines Mansion Bed & Breakfast.   This B&B is 115 years old, each of its 10 rooms are uniquely themed.  I’m staying in “The Lodge…” legend has it that Butch Cassidy stayed in this very suite.

The evening caretakers, a young college couple going to BYU, were extremely gracious and invited me for dinner. Stay tuned for my full review…
