    Back to original question.... cactus needles in your tire from the Slagbaai tour.
    Some people are like a Slinky, not really good for anything but they do make you smile when you push them down stairs.

    I totally forgot about the flat tires....

    Knock on wood, we have never had an issue with flat tires, but after every trip I hear stories from others in the group that had issues with tires.

    Snagel,
    You know you just jinxed yourself. If you're diving and have tanks and regs, there's an adapter you can buy for like $5 to air up your tire as long as it's a slow leak.
    Normally, the lugnuts are rusted on, the spare is flat, there's no jack, etc.

    Reminds me, there's another thing I don't like about Bonaire, that's getting to Wayaka II and people are already there.

    I think I'm going to invest in one of those tire adapters. Maybe that will cancel the jinx.

    Wayaka II - Is that the site that is in the National Park?

    For sure - if you have the tool you won't need it.

    If it is what I'm thinking of, we've been there. Just haven't dove it. We were sight-seeing the last day waiting on our late afternoon flight and came across it. We came across a lady sitting next to the water and she told us that they brought 3 tanks for 3 divers and one of the tanks blew a o-ring. She lost out and the other 2 divers went on a dive. We had our gear in the back of the truck and offered to get a o-ring for her, but she said they would be coming in shortly anyway.

    It seemed like a very nice secluded place.

    Kind of a pain to get there, but could be a lot worse. For us it's flight out at 6am, hooking up in Atlanta and then 4 hours in the air until touchdown. Typically in our room around 3pm.
