There is a place I like to go camping/shooting in BLM land down some very remote gravel roads. This is really the only gravel road I've traveled a long distance on. (30-40 miles) In the last two years I've gotten a total of NINE flat tires driving this road, in different vehicles, with newer tires. Walking 30 miles to somewhere my cell phone works is rather annoying. So my question is, is it common to get flat tires on gravel roads or is there something nasty hiding in the gravel? What do you think about those tire sealing products - the goop you put in your tire to seal holes...does it work? I always carry a compressor or two or three, but they've been known to break...and sometimes the tires leak too fast to fill up! I love this area and don't want to stop going...but [censored], I'm tired of changing tires!
