While on a gravel road 10 miles in towards the Alvord Desert, I heard this clanging noise. After inspection, I noticed this piece of wire/nail in my tire. Conundrum: do I pull it out and potentially get a flat right there or keep it in and ride it out? I decided to bag visiting the hot springs and desert and head to Lakeview by way of Denio. At least I would be on the way to a Les Schwab. I made it about 22 miles on the tire before it blew. For those of you with rear-wheel drive and have never had a rear flat, a flat feels like your steering has gone mushy. Anyway, I naturally blew out on a curve so I had to drive a ways on the flat, only to preserve my own life. I was about 3/4 of the way from Fields to Denio.

I'm not sure how long it took me to change the tire, but I'm good at it, so I'm sure it wasn't that long. Here's the funny part: it took me about 10 minutes to figure out *how to get the jack out of the car*. I was exasperated. It was only AFTER I started to use the jack did I realize how I should have properly removed the jack from the car (instead of pulling and using leverage). I love my tire-iron, by the way. It's annoying to place in the back of the car, but infinitely easier to use than that piece of crap thing that comes with the car. Do you also see the tiny hole/righ-thing on the jack? What tool do you think you're supposed to use to make the jack rise? I still don't know. Nothing logical in my toolkit fit, so I had to stick the handle of the pliers in the hole and gave me bruises on my hand!

In the time it took me to fully remove the jack and change the flat, two guys stopped to help, but, naturally, I politely refused. =) They were nice to stop though.

I wasn't scared about the whole situation at all. I was just amused by the whole situation. A guy that I work with told me of a time he was driving to the Alvord Desert and got a flat...on the same stretch of road! I just had to laugh at the whole situation. All in all though, it was an awfully pretty place to blow a tire!

SOS, Flat Tyre (Somewhere, Ladakh)

SOS, Flat Tyre (Somewhere, Ladakh)

The inevitable kept happening and we suffered flat tyres thrice. This one happenend on the last day on the way back from Tso Moriri. And this time even the spare tyre was flat. Thinles raced back to the nearest village we had left behind driving all along with a flat. And there we sat in the middle of the road waiting for a sign of civilisation. However we were glad that we would get to do the one thing that we had not had the chance of doing in years. Hitchhiking !!

Fortunately Thinles sent a vehicle that took us some place from here. And from there we found one more person willing enough to help. And thus we reached Thiksey, missing out on Hemis in the process. Maybe will visit Hemis the next time around. Were then finally picked up from Thiiksey on the last drive back to Leh......
