Unhappy Major Bummer!!

Well, finally were getting to our first weekend of camping for the season, and pretty much had everything ready. Flushed the plumbing, restocked stuff, plugged in for the fridge, and checked the tire pressure, etc. So, I look at the black streaks that accumulated since uncovering it, and decide to clean it. 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!!

So very sorry to hear about your unfortunate accident!!! I hope you heal fast, so you can get back out before the end of summer. Best of luck with the surgery - hope all goes well.

Thanks a bunch! We have another trip planned in two weeks, and I'm really going to try to make that one. I guess this is why they made the words "accident", and "moron". I Will be more careful in the future.

Sorry to hear about your mishap.

Might be something to be said for long brushes.

Sorry for your accident. Ladder accidents are pretty common around rv's due to the soft ground that a step ladder sits on and the tendency of the legs to dig in.

Hopefully someone will be made more aware by your circumstance.

S shaped arm! Wow you reach and clean places like never before. Have that ladder fix the other arm and the black streaks better watch out.

Ironic that just this weekend I was on the roof of ours, almost stumbled (if I had not caught my balance, it would have been 12'+ to the ground.... Had to remind myself that I haven't been a teenager since the '70's.......
