Our daughter had her head split open by an idiot child throwing rocks - 4 or 5 stitches.
I filleted my left knee on the curled over part of a pipe that was driven into the ground - 6 stitches.
Some wonderful burns, cuts that should have had stitches, crushed fingers in doors, scrapes, cuts and bruises galore!
It's camping. Stuff's gonna happen.
We are now known as the go-to people for medical emergencies. It's a neat feeling to help, especially when little ones are really hurt.

While walking thru a campground, a large dog broke his collar and attacked as we walked by their site with our dogs. My male defended the family successfully until I was able to jump and pin the other dog. Lots of scrapes and scratches that day.

The big causality was I had to drop the oil can I had just opened.

We've got a Weimie and I can say that that's odd for that breed. But of course every dog's different. Hope you're ok.

Yes, I agree, they are usually not agressive. I was in shock that she bit me. I was riding a bike on a paved path around the lake in the campground. As I aproached the couple and two youg kids kind of surounded the dog. It was dodging around looking between them like a dog does. Just as I passed the dog lunged and bit me on the calf. The people were great about it and drove me to the ER, paid for all. I hated it for them as the dog was quarentined for 10 days but all seems to be well now. I think the dog thought it was protecting them.

Fosters? I would have had to keep that other dog... while the owners were sent to Botany Bay to get you a refill!

(I rarely blame a dog for being bad; just the two legged creatures that are supposed to be responsible for them)

I blew out my knee 200' up a rock face while camping in the San Juan mountains. My Army buddy nearly 2 hours and lots of ropes and slings to get me down. Thank God he went with me.

I agree.

What was bad is when the dogs owner came over and grabbed his pup he says "dude-do you want to hit my dog?" WHAT?! Just grabbed my two and continued on the walk.

Camp host goes over and talks with the owner and finds out that's the second time he has broken off his collar. Camp host called the rangers and they were packed up and gone within 60 minutes- before the rangers even got there!

Forgot;

Banged my noggin on the awning arms this last trip out.

Nope, not just once
not twice
not even three times


FOUR TIMES!
I've got a roll of that orange hunting tape (for flagging trails) that WILL go with us next trip out.

No cuts, just naggervatin as all git-out. Left some hair hangin' in one of the awning arms.

After 4 hits to the head, I'm sure you can be forgiven for being a little forgetful.

Heck, at my age I don't need an excuse for being forgetful. /snark

Unfortunately my brain ain't like a computer....can't just defrag it. Things are a little scattered, fractured and cluttered.... unimportant things gotta be purged. Sometimes not-so-unimportant things get accidentally deleted....like; THERE's FOUR AWNING ARMS in front of the RV Weezer!

I think I got all four of 'em.


I see lots of folks hang those fabric wind twirly thingamajigs on their awning arms. Newp, ain't goin' there. No blood yet...I'm good!
