Fishing Hole

This post is not so much about a fishing hole, than it is about a hole in my tire on the way to the fishing hole. It all happened at 5:17am on a Saturday morning two weeks ago on my way to Old Hickory Lake in Goldilocks (my SUV). The plan was to meet up with Greasy Ham (That's my fishing buddy) and kayak fish. All of a sudden, I heard the RAP RAP RAP noise coming from the right rear tire as I drove on the interstate. At this point, I realized that my plans had suddenly changed. In the back of my mind, I thought "Dang these tires are only 8 months old, how did this happen."

Anyway, here's a picture of the RAP STAR that ruined my fishing trip. 


  1. Looks like it came from one of those police spike strips. With a hole like that it doesn't matter if the tire is 8 months old or brand new, any way you look at it, you're hosed.


  2. Yep, I purchased the tires at Sam's and they gave me a new tire without pro rating. Only cost me $17 bucks for mounting, so not too bad a deal.
