I love these threads. Honestly, I've replaced 3 BMW batteries. Each one has been replaced with factory OE. Done. No issues, no problems, happy motoring.

Go-flats. We're talking about stretches where you can drive 300, 400 miles between gas stations, let alone towns with tires shops. I keep a can of that pressurized tire sealant crap just in case.

6 black bears.
4 moose. 1 was on the road running around, little guy so he didn't know the rules of highways I'm guessing.
