Ouch !!!! My Head !!!

OK, We have seen MotorHomes, 5th Wheels & Travel Trailers with sideouts and a lot with those Pool Noodles to protect your head. Ok I'm being honest I thought man they look Stupid !! We today getting ready for a month on the road. I didn't hit my head once nope, the second time I got Laid out on the ground !!! Flat out too.
I am changing my mind to those Noodles too. I still think they look dumb, but I'm getting them. Well as soon as this Head Ache goes away, but I look good with the Band-Aid on my head . I blamed the Wife at the store today for hitting an Old Man too.

We can't wait to get out of here for a while

"four" !!!!

Got 'ca .... Its the awning supports that "always" gets me.

Was at a camping neighbors unit talking about sewer "hard-line". I was sitting on their very nice wood steps leading to their front door, and they asked me to come-over and sit in a chair. I attempted to get up and cracked myself so hard on their awning support they thought I had surely struck blood .....

Much to their suprise I recoiled to an up-right position and proceeded to the vacant lawn chair without so much as a flinch.

If any future encounters with an awning support creates a divit on the noggin I'll be sure to blame it on the wife in public ..... that should be fun ....
To bad they dont have any Icons with a bandaid on its head, or the thumbs up ....

Don caught his head on the awning support yesterday when bending over to adjust the sattelite dish. We usually have long ribbon like things that we hang at the arm joint, but don't always use them because if even a small breeze comes up, we have to retract our electric flat-pitched awning quickly

There doesn't seem a time when we get back from our camp that I don't have at least two bandaids, at least 4-5 insect bites, and a bump on my head.

The thing that worries me is that I judge how productive I was, or how much fun I had, by my wounds !!

Am I ok ????

Our old popup had an awning but the poles were staked into the ground perfectly verticle. The 17Z has a built in RV awning. The first trip I smacked my head 3 or 4 times. The worst part was it was always during the day, never at night. I need to flag them in the future.

Slides in and hooked up ready for an early road trip. I lost the band-aid too. I can't wait for some more battle scares.
Friends came in from St. Louis with their 5th wheel. They are parked on the rear of the drive way. I just told them revelie at 0600 tomorrow (ya right).
