You DID buy a lottery ticket later that day, didn't you?

Glad you came through that "adventure" intact!

I'm so glad you are both ok. Many years ago I had a relative who was killed by a log falling off a logging truck.
Personally, I'm alive now because of being in heavy safe vehicles after being hit a few times " by the OTHER drivers." You can be a great driver and it doesn't make a difference.
I hope your ins. Co. Will pay for the new parts. In one head on accident my new car was only three months old. The frame was welded and State Farm refused to total it. Four months in the shop and $17,000 later, I had to make payments on a worthless MBZ.

So glad to hear that you are relative ok. I know you must be in shock! You are right we all need to be carful they are called accidents, because no one does it on purpose.

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes. We are back on the road, with our car while the Truck and trailer are in sick bay.

We will have to stay in hotels and insurance company have agreed to pay for trip and all repairs.

Good heavens! I'm mighty glad y'all are OK! By all means have everything thoroughly checked. A large tractor-trailer rig jackknifed on the Interstate near our house while avoiding an idiot driving recklessly in a pickup. A couple in a Dodge Ram 3500 pulling a 30' 5r had to jam on the brakes. They hit the big rig and the 5r they were towing sheared its pin and smashed into the back of the TV cab. Fortunately, they were still on the highway and didn't jackknife themselves. The fool who caused the wreck didn't fare so well; his truck was totaled and they were loading him into an ambulance when I went past on the opposite side.

I am glad all is well. Truck and trailer can be fixed. That was certainly not a 2x4 falling off the back of a pickup. Take care.

That had to be extremely scary to go through. I'm glad to hear that everyone is safe.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
