    Harrison hotsprings weekend

    20 minutes into the drive ...BEEP , low tire. Fuckin great.

    Hoped that it wasn't a total flat. Kept driving. Found a gas station with free air. Topped the low tire up. Thankfully it seems like a slow leak. So Ill just jump around gas station to gas station for air.

    Fascinating. Will you at least show a pic of the tire?

    Checked in. 4th floor. Straight to the spas.

    Man this is nice. I needed this. Water could be a little hotter but I like the natural temperature

    Sounds like a fascinating trip . . . the pictures, the details . . . what was the psi number? Was it BP? Caltex? Rain? Clouds (ohoh, careful of Karen)

    No tire gauge at the station (Esso). Just eye balled it and waited till the low tire light went out.

    Nothing quite like a klement's brat and kraut hot off the grill anytime of year. Some stone ground mustard and you're all set. Enjoy the trip regardless of wich ever flat tire you're with. Oh, and nice pics. This is where I throw in a smiley emojie. If not part of the task bar whatever point do they serve. I'll have a double.

    Went to the spa again after breakfast. Spent a couple hours+ in there relaxing and giving zero fucks.

    Only unpleasant part was this Boomer couple that jumped in near us. That's after they put on their Boomer tunes. They played it pretty loud. I could think of worse songs. But still. Boomers piss me off.

    I hate it when pics don't post.

    Anyway Harrison Hotsprings is one of the only places I like in Canada , in North America actually.

    So if you are one of those weirdos who comes to this frozen wasteland as a tourist, skip everything else and just come here.
