Adventure On The Road

On the way to our Friday night gaming group with starmalachite and thelongshot, the right rear wheel suddenly decided to quit facing forward. Fortunately, this happened in stop-and-go local traffic just a few blocks from our destination -- it could have been nasty if it had happened a few minutes earlier on the Beltway. We pulled off and called for assistance; thelongshot continued ahead on foot and let the rest of the group know we weren't going to make it.

After a bit of waiting, we got a tow truck (kudos to both Better World Auto Club and M&M Towing for their service) and dropped the car off at our garage (we have 50-mile towing coverage) and returned home.
