Don't get a flat in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque effectively has 3 types of people:

* Natives: The people who live in the sticks and drive big well-used pickup trucks
* Students/Hippies: People who flock around Downtown/Central. Tend to drive either a Japanese car or an ancient Volkswagen.
* Business folk: Rich Republicans who live in NE and drive spotless waxed Lexus SUVs and pick-ups.

Sadly, there is a type left out of this:

* Anyone who drives a tiny little Volvo.

As a result, it appears that the nearest place I can get a tire to replace the one I blew this morning is _Pheonix_ (A comfortable 6 hour drive away). Time to go find a man with a knack for duct tape.
