Hit a Bump in the Road on the way home

What a beautiful day to be traveling home. Much better than the ride up except that little old Bump in the Road. Well was it a bump or something else on the road? All we know is that it was a very expensive bump...

There was a flash to my left that caught my eye and then fear hit me all over. All I saw was black, real hard black as in rubber, in my rear view mirror. That could only mean one thing that I had less rubber on my tires and that is not a good thing. I Pulled over to the side of Hwy 105 about 25km from Aulds Cove

Here it is a holiday and where were we going to find help. I called the Irving in Aulds Cove which was where we were heading. They suggested I call Seaboard Tire who said they could find us some help.

Long story short - He contacted J.B. Mechanical who located and brought us out a new tire mounted on a new rim. He jacked up the trailer and replaced the old wheel & tire.

John Campbell the owner operator of J.B Mechanical got us back on the road in a couple hours.

If you ever need help from Cape Breton Island to New Glasgow nova Scotia this young man is well worth a try. He sure impressed us.

Thats J.B. Mechanical or John at 902-631-6176
