The good, bad, and ugly!

Having a nice time camping despite a few incidences. Towing went great! Brake controller not much. It decided to lock up on me randomly which was aggravation and I probably lost some tread in the meantime. Campground is dead but we are trying to make the most of our time. Bad news is that my 12 year old broke his wrist skating around the basketball court on roller blades. Ended up in the ER and have to cut our trip short to see an Orhopedic surgeon. What a bummer. Now this evening my bffis husband was injured. My hubby was whacking a stick against a tree to break it for the fire and a piece went flying into friends face. Gave him a fat lip and hopefully not a broken jaw. Man we must have a black cloud above us because next thing was my fingers getting pinched in a lawn chair. lol. Wish us luck for the next two days!!!

Sorry for all the troubles you had to go through. Maybe install an ER room in the Jay Feather for emergencies. Well we wish you good luck for the coming days and enjoy your camping. By the time your hair gets gray you will have lots of memories. Hope they are all good ones.

Alie and John

As I told my girls (while growing up - now told to the grandkids), "It'll all go away before you get married". Originally spoken to me by my father (RIP).

1) brake controller
2) broken wrist
3) wood in the face !?

That's three bad things. You're all good now!

Please let us know on the forums where you are camping, so we can go somewhere else!
