Finally fixed the slow leaky tire

I'm the king of procrastination.

I've had a slow leak in my rear passenger tire for ... years.  If I left the TA sitting up for two or three weeks I'd come back and find the passenger side rear tire almost flat.  I'd just air it back up and get on with my life.

Well, since the '91 Corvette lost one of its tires due to hitting a roofing nail in the subdivision that was heavily damaged by the December 23 EF3 tornado I decided to finally roll the TA into the shop where I got my tires and had them pull the tire to check it.  They couldn't find anything wrong with the tire and finally one of the mechanics said he'd see the problem before; a very, very slow leak at the tire stem.  He replaced the tire stem and ... guess what?  

No more leaking tire.

Take one task off my to-do list.

I'm going to miss the Pontiacs in Pigeon Forge show this year due to my wreck and injuries but next year ... I'm already planning for it now.
