Was doing real well, until the ladder decided to kick out from under me! Don't remember what happened, but now I'm on the ground, and my wrist and arm are sorta in this funny "s" shape. So, it's surgery today, and had to cancel our reservations! Please, everyone be super careful on ladders.

I'm now a lefty for four to six weeks, and it took me 10 minutes to post this!!
Major bummer is right! Hope you heal quickly and can get back to enjoying your RV.

Ladder are a big safety risk. I fell off one a few years ago and broke my tibia/fibula all from a fall from about 3 feet up. Hope your recovery goes well and you can get some camping in soon!

Wow, hope you get all patched up and soon. It is a bummer to be in a cast with the beginning of the summer camping season coming on strong!

Thanks to all for your concern. The next trip planned will happen as scheduled, one way or another. In fact, since I'll be off duty for 6 to 8 weeks, we have added a day or two onto the next two trips! Might as well enjoy the time off!
It happened so fast, I'm really not sure if I did it, or the ladder broke from under me. Soft ground? Yea, a little. A little slope? Yea, that too.Either way, the DW will be supervisor from now on.
