I’m sure all of us that have been RVing for a few years have encountered a few unwanted surprises in our travels. Here are a few photos of some of mine.
The first photo doesn’t look like an unwanted surprise but it was a real nail biter. It was our departure day from Yellowstone and we were headed out toward the east exit. The road was under repair and had been stripped to hard packed dirt which was getting quite slick because a light snow was falling. Although it doesn’t look like much, it was a steep mountain grade we were heading down. I really had a white knuckle moment when I encountered a large tour bus coming up the grade, I believe my wife closed her eyes and held her breath.
This next photo was on the road to our destination campground in South Dakota. WHAT??? I’m pulling a fifth wheel that is 12’6” tall and 8’ wide. I was very nervous as I continued on. Fortunately the campground was just around the bend which was long before the tunnel.
The next photo was taken at Meramec State Park right here in MO. Although the sign is obvious in the photo, it’s not quite so noticeable sitting up in the cab of the truck. The state also hung some yellow warning tape in the tree. The tape was even less noticeable than the sign.
OK, this last one is more of a “what the heck” surprise. Really? Low flying aircraft? Again my trailer is over 12 feet tall, how low do these aircraft fly?
