Met my twin last night

When I was parked in Mitchell, SD , the truck next to me had a flat on the inner drive tire. The Truckstops shop had closed and the driver had called a tire shop to drop off a tire, he was going to change it himself. I offered to help, but he didn't need much.
Like me, he has a torque multiplier type lug wrench, along with bar and a jack. Helped a bit with the mounting, but it was rare to find someone who looks at things like I do. He was a Ukrainian immigrant and was traveling with his whole family. His son and wife helped with the job, and when he was done, wanted to show his son my truck wheels (spokes and some tube type), as they were what he was used to in Europe, he wanted his kid to see how it was in the rest of the world outside of North America.
We talked a bit about trucking in Europe and he gave me some very good Ukrainian chocolates. They had to get back to Seattle so the kids could start the school year.

That's a cool OTR story, glad those still happen.

Did you see the Corn Palace?
