    Your're right on that, however, time means little to me, since I am retired, plus a widower. I believe the mileage (round trip) would be about 5000 miles from Michigan to Sacramento. But...

    No disrespect

    No disrespect intended, but no, I don't think that counts. ROTC doesn't count as military service in my book, not unless you report for active duty.

    Changing tire by hand

    Years ago, I used to change my own tires on my Airhead. Have tires changed much, as far as pliability, etc? What tools would I need other than tire irons? Thanks in advance.
