So I've been on this 3,000 mile/3 week road trip this month... had a great time, especially stopping at Cedar Point on Monday ("just wow!"). Yesterday was my very last day -- a final 550 mile drive home. I was 50 miles/50 minutes from home, on I-287N in New Jersey headed for the Tapan Zee Bridge. Thinking about what a great time and all the fun things I did and really looking forward to getting home to my family and dogs... .. but then I changed lanes into the right lane, and had to avoid a car in the middle lane also moving into my lane.. had to drop into the shoulder a few inches to avoid a collision.... but then I hit a big pothole (or something) on the edge of the shoulder. Blew out both right tires and possibly bent the rims. Had to get AAA to flatbed my car home the rest of the way. But I am an optimist. It could have been a lot worse --it could have been cold, raining, or snowing. Or there could have been body damage or loss of control. Or could have happened on the first day of my trip, and not the last. Since I was stranded on the highway in a bad spot (around a blind curve) and at night, AAA gave my call priority and I only waited about 30 minutes for the tow. FYI, here was my trip route -- 25 Superchargers and just about one megawatt of energy consumed.
