This morning I got two new rear tires for the Highlander, and a wheel alignment (haven't had one since I bought the car). I asked for and got USA manufactured tires! They didn't reset the tire pressure monitoring system properly so I'll drive by there tomorrow, possibly on the way to the Roosevelt's. (In the meantime my son reset it himself.) I had the same problem when the guy in Fargo patched the tire - by next morning when I was leaving the warning came on, and I had to drive by the shop to get it reset. I wish I could disconnect the whole tire warning system. When I picked up the bolt in my tire outside Fargo, the warning light didn't ever come on and the tire was flat by the time I stopped. I'd hate to rely on it.
I had somewhat of a wait in air conditioning that nearly froze me to death! I walked outside for a bit but it was cool out there as well. The manager turned up the temp on the A/C for me and it helped a bit.
I noticed one of the odometer settings shows that I drove about 4800 miles to get here. I estimated a bit less than that, and it would have been several hundred additional miles had I gone through Canada as planned. Now I need to get an oil change and I'll be set until I get back to California.
Now to relax a bit, maybe sit out on the deck. I still haven't seen a deer since I've been here although my daughter-in-law tells me there are greater numbers of them than ever. They must be taking a different route than through the back yard.
