Sure Hope Today and the Rest of the Trip Is Better
Started out out for a 3-week trip from south eastern Washington state to the Oregon coast, then to the California redwoods. Right off, the 5th wheel hitch wasn't locked correctly, even though it appeared to be, was checking it and it dropped off on the back of my truck bed. Paint scrapes underneath trailer, no other damage.
Pickup has two small dents, all is easily fixable by me, did body work and custom painting in the early 70s and still do my personal hot rods and classic cars.
2-plus hour traffic delay just west of Eugene, Oregon, 42 miles from Florence, our 2-day stop. Bad 3 car accident, 4 of us couldn't U-turn, had to wait it out. Got to 1000-Trails RV park, pretty much filled, few spots, while checking, some big roots in road made the trailer jump, knocking dishes out and breaking on floor. Thought I took the roof or side off trailer. Was looking at clearances everywhere but the road itself.
When we started, wife had something on floor, which took up a small section of the vinyl floor.
Too tired, grumpy, sore, etc, get call from Realtor to say we own a new house. No noticeable excitement from me, may later on today.
Sure hope today is a better day.
