I was indoctrinated in "risk management" as part of my job. I carried that mentality home with me. I sort of mentally build "event trees," multi-layered "What If?" diagrams, for almost everything I do. A good plan can withstand multiple "Oh ****"s before having an adverse outcome.

My one blowout in about one million miles of driving happened when I was out of town, on a Saturday afternoon. I was back on the road in 20 minutes and got were I was going just about when I'd planned to.

Putting a spare on is quicker than AAA or BMW Roadside Assistance.

Everbody knows.... if the police have to come and get you they're bringing an ass kickin' with 'em.
