Worse yet, they took the barmaid with them.

Sounds like a movie made, Smokey and the Bandit, but different, it was 2 thirsty Texans who wanted Coors when it was only available from Colorado.

UWe purchased new tires for our Rv before we drove across th US. We had them filled with all of our vehicles have it.

Now that we seriously live in the Boonies....there is no place where I can top off the nitrogen if needed in our vehicles. While on the road ...I spied a big named tire hopes of just topping it off....I stopped in. They told me it was a 2 hour wait!

Needless to say...I didn't wait!

Having nitrogen doesn't mean you don't check your tire pressure.... ive checked the air pressure and it hasn't changed since we arrived..5 years!

Guess it's personal preference between air and nitrogen. Meh....I like nitrogen and when the time comes to add air....i will....only cuz I don't have a choice

Ah yes, I remember the 'Mississippi Divide' regarding Coors back in the day. It was considered bootlegging to bring Coors east of the river. Then again, why would you want to?
