Holiday Travel - Can You Change a Tire?

Hey neighbors!

I know many people have travel plans for the holidays, so I have a question.  How many of you can change a tire.  This is important not just for the holidays, but anytime you drive.  If we are driving we need to be able to do simple things, like changing a tire, pumping gas, checking the fluids, etc.  I know many will say, I have a roadside service or I would call someone on my cell phone.  Sometimes that is not possible.

Let me share an example where I saw what could have happened.  I knew a young lady who had just graduated from high school who was out for the day.  She had just stopped in to see me at a church we were at.  When she went out to leave she had a flat tire.  She had no idea how to change the tire.  My husband showed up and assisted her with the tire change.  This got me to thinking...
What if she had been in a parking lot alone?
What if this happened on the roadside?
What if she had no phone service when the flat happened?

Just wanted to get you thinking.  Below is an infographic you might find helpful.

I remember last spring my brother and I were on the road to a concert and we blew a tire. He handled it so well. He pulled over and did all those things listed above in the infographic. I was so proud of him. I could probably do it, too. But, I never have before. Those are all great things to know how to do and be ready to do though.
