Sharing Vehicle Preparedness and More on ALR Podcast

In Episode 57 of the Armed Lutheran podcast,  Aaron Israel gave us a tip about being prepared for emergencies while we’re in our vehicles. I want to add one thing on to his tip. When you prepare your vehicle and emergency kits for the vehicle be sure to test them out. Learn how to use them. Make sure you know what to do with those items when you need them.

When I was a young girl my dad taught me how to change a tire. Over the years I’ve needed to change tires a number of times. Even one time when I was eight-months pregnant with my daughter. It’s an important skill to learn. Dad’s, and moms, please teach your daughters, and sons, how to do this.

One day my daughter and I were out hunting in an area where there is not cell service. That’s where many of the best hunting spots are. We got to our hunting spot before daylight. As we unloaded and were preparing our gear I noticed the tire was leaking and going flat. I looked at it and with it being so early in the morning and chilly out I said, “Let’s go hunt a while and then we’ll come back and change the tire.”

We hunted the morning, came back and had a snack. Then, I pulled out the lug wrench, jack, and other items, and prepared to change the tire. This is where we ran into a few complications. The lug wrench that came with my Toyota Tacoma didn’t fit the lugs on my tire. Yep. both were stock items that came with the vehicle. Not aftermarket add-ons here. They didn’t fit.

This lug wrench was just a single bar. When he taught me my dad said, “Get a star, it’s better for leverage.” Here’s another tip.  A “star,” also known as a 4-way, is a good thing to have because it fits multiple sized lugs.

 

It’s not fun to hunt where there’s a lot of people. We decided to limp the truck out this dusty jeep road far enough to where we could get a couple bars of signal and send a text message. We got a message to somebody. While we were waiting, a wildlife officer came and asked about our status. She got her lug wrench out and it didn’t fit our lugs either.

Eventually the day went by and we got a star wrench. We got the lugs off. We got the tire changed and everything ended up okay. My daughter learned how to change a tire. Since then, she’s also needed to utilize the skill.

The moral of the story is, Dads, or moms, pass on these skills. Teach your children to self-sufficient and independent. Please, learn how to change a tire. Get your gear ready. Test the gear before you need it. Always be prepared.
