I woke up today with a flat tire on my van,a lesson in self reliance

Part of living a more deliberate lifestyle is self reliance.Having skills to do things yourself,instead of having someone do it for you..Now today when i went to get into my van,I had a flat tire. Not a good way to start your day.but lucky for me I know how to change a tire.after i put the spare on,i drove to a local trustworthy tire dealership and had them fix the flat.It had a nail in cost to fix it $12.75
if I would have had purchased the tires at that place it would have been no charge.

I know there are many  people who do not know how to change a tire. Do you know how?
maybe you are a male or female, it doesn't even matter what age you are at.This should be something you need to know how to do.

Let's say you never have learned this skill?what do you do?

Ask someone who knows to teach you,or you can even watch a YouTube video and then go try it yourself. also look at your cars owners manual for additional information.

Do you know where the spare tire is located?Even if you know how,be sure to check if your spare to see if it is still full of air.Some of the newer cars do not even have a spare tire.but offer a fix a flat can?How lame. well below is a video i found so you can watch how to do it.

Why not go and  do it,even if you do not have a flat tire right now.go and practice.Find a nice Saturday and  just take it off and put it back on. make sure you have the lug nuts on tight,but not too tight.
