I don't have a tire repair kit, but maybe I could bring an old tire? Housemate bought a car with a spare that needs a new tire. It holds air, so it could be a useful "patient" to practice on.

It’ll be great to learn about tire repair, especially valve stem replacement and patching a tear.
See you all tomorrow.

Great to meet so many of you guys today! Iris and I were set-up in the back with the Taco/Khaya opened up and sprawled out for folks to come by and take a look. Thanks for all the great conversations! Please stay in touch as we're fairly new to the area.

Cheers!
-Tony (friends call me "Tone") & Iris.
