031 Waiting 4 Brakes

031 Waiting 4 Brakes

On a stop to try to get the Lowrance GPS lock into satellites we rolled down the window and smelled something burning. Further inspection showed smoke coming from under the car in front on both the left and right sides. I suspected hot brakes. We let the car cool off and had no further problems, thankfully...and made sure to downshift on the hilly, curvy parkway.

We have a lot of mtns. here so we practice this a lot, the downshift, not the hot brakes!
