... clearance in the wheel well to get the tire off. With the new axle and the raised camper, it should have worked to just jack up the side with the flat and get it changed without difficulty.

... to the ocean is via a 2.5 mile long tunnel blasted through the mountain. Pretty damn impressive though the sign at the entrance saying "falling rocks next 2.5 miles" is just a tad concerning when you're about to drive through it!
Ten seconds down the road from the tunnel exit we found a place to spend the next 2 1/2hrs - the Portage & Byron glaciers. After a misdirected effort, i.e. a Jeff "shortcut" through bush, trail getting less and ...
