Two weeks ago I left on a road trip that took me halfway across the continent and back again, a journey to Wasteland Weekend (which y'all should check out). One my way out there I must have sucked some bad gas and I had to replace my fuel filter in my rather low slung car. I pulled off into the midnight desert and used my Vakra to dig a ditch so I could get under my car. Off and on my way! Thirty miles from anywhere in the mountains, a tire blew. My shitty scissor jack kept sinking and sliding in the sand. My Rand McNally didn't help it, so with a heavy heart I laid down my trusty Tibetan toe clipper and started jacking, sure it would destroy it. I changed the tire and let the car down. The only damage to my Vakra was a minor scratch in the finish, still straight as an arrow. Thank you, Zombie Tools, for making something that saved my butt not once, but twice at 2 am on a deserted, desert mountain road outside of Barstow, California. K.M., Georgetown, TX
