Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad way beyond pissed.

4 days in a row, we've patched tires. Today, a rock break in one tire which now means 2 new tires are needed up front.

Today, I hooked up the camper to pull it into position and make it easier to load.

Broke the sewer tank drain attachment off due to the oak brush growing up against the camper from all the rain ( currently being repaired/drying ) and then I noticed my foot was all the way to the floor when Hitting the brakes.

New master cylinder was picked up and will be installed tomorrow.

When it shits, it SHITS on us.

Zero issues last year, nothing but bad luck and gut sickening feeling this year so far.

This is why I always prepare things 1 month a head of time before hunting season.

Bow season starts on the 16th of next month and I haven't been able to practice. I had it all planned but rain and sciatica have teamed up to change my plans.

My truck is OK ... I think.

Tires are all fixed, camper tank is fixed. Damn ford brakes however are typical. Just changed out the master cylinder and it improved a little, but I still dont like it. I searched online and its typical problem and of course, a million "fixes" to improve it.

I had to have the brakes fixed on my F-250 on 5 wheels. I know, it only has 4 wheels ... but I had it happen to all 4 wheels (at different times) and one repeat. They lock up when you least expect it. Over $150 each depending on where it happened.

Each time it was the same reason, "Ford brakes do that."

From what I've found, my problem is the ABS Modulator. I'll deal with it later.

on the truck yes. That one still picked up a screw. The most flats are picking up rock breaks or screws/nails and are 4ply. That to will get address after the season.

Never had this many flats in such a short period.
