It was good we tried this at home because I realized that there was nothing in my tool box to pry off the hub cap. We raided Stable Boy's tools and confiscated a spare mini crow bar.
Turns out the leak was due to a screw, but I ended up buying a whole new tire anyway because that particular tire had the inner edge worn off. Kind of a drag cuz I just had to replace the two rear tires on my van for the same reason. I guess we're just crooked that way.
The kids and I (and Kid 1's friend) took Sweetheart and Raven and hiked most of the road to Horseshoe Lake. It was gorgeous. Several of us took off our shoes and waded in the lake. I think we may try to rent some canoes and go up there to camp sometime.
It was our first hike with Raven and Sweetheart. They did good, but it made me appreciate how well-trained Piper and Valentine really are after several years of family hikes. It's a lot more relaxing hiking when you don't have to constantly be correcting, desensitizing, or teaching the horses as you go!
We got back to Rock Creek Camp about 7:15 pm and found Stable Boy and a few other men cleaning up and getting ready to head out. They had a long day, but the cabin walls were all up and sheathed. It looked good!
