Made it back safe and sound.

The roads actually dried up and weren't too bad most of the way.

Couldn't drive faster than about 70 mph because of wander and wheel bounce. The wheel weight took the hit and finally flew off.

Will wash it up in the morning and do a closer assessment of the damage. :(

I love it too Tracy. Wanna ride. ...........after it gets fixed.

So I grabbed my trusty sledge hammer and block of wood and pounded it pretty close to looking not too bad.

The wheel weight is gone. I'll use a stick on weight or get them to replace those 15 year old tires.

As a side diversion. The battery died in the Jeep......Bill can remember the quick charge he gave it in October......so a new 1000 CCA Eveready fits perfect.
