Well, I'm finally back in Ohio. The trip home from Oklahoma City was nightmarish to say the least. I lost a wheel hub in Rolla, MO... and an alternator just this side of Indianapolis.

I was lucky enough that the wheel hub decided to go out as I was pulling off the highway for the night. And, I was lucky enough again that a Big O Tire was across the street from my hotel. I had them pop the hub in cuz I didn't have a lift with me.

I was lucky enough that the truck told me the alternator went out. DIC said "BATTERY NOT CHARGING." Popped the search term "auto" in my GPS and there was an Advance Auto Parts at the next exit. 40 degrees, dark, and I was outside of the store swapping alternators.

I can't complain though... that hub lasted me 85,000 miles and the alternator was the factory one. 181,000 miles ain't so bad of a service life.

I'm glad to be home!!!
