A wobbly wheel bearing just got worse and at Mao Xian, about 100 km up the road, he just struggled into a parking lot and stopped. That was it. Wheel off, bearings revealed, had it.
The Toyota to the rescue. Ian, Gerry and Andy are now on a mercy dash about 170 km back to the big smoggy city of Chengdu, a place that Ian swore he would avoid, to try to find replacement bearings. Bill, Pete, Rex and I are slumming in probably the best hotel of the whole trip, at $AUS50 a night, twin share, here in Mao Xian.
