Just be thankful it was only a tire. Last June I hit two mule deer near Murdo, SD on I-90. Needless to say we made deer sausage in the middle of the Interstate. But, the good news was we were not hurt, we caused no damage to anyone else other than the deer, we were extremely well taken care of by a Dodge dealer in Pierre who gave us a car to drive while he repaired our truck and within 5 days we were on our road again to Alaska and still made it to Prince Rupert in time to connect with the Alaska Marine Highway ferry we had reservations on. Sometimes there are bumps in the road--but they make for good stories.
