Well, let's see now:
6 stitches in top of head after testing the tensile strength of the king pin plate;
8 stitches just at the eye brow line after falling off the steps of the rv when my hand slipped on the wet hand rail and the dog took off to the left;
4 stitches in the lower butt cheek, narrowly missing the femoral artery and the "twins", after attempting to clear a low fence and impaling my leg on one of the pointy things;
1 poop shower after attempting to drain the black tank into a blue tote and forgetting to release the pressure cap/valve. Went to see why the hose was bulging and kaboom! just when I knelt down beside it. Craptastic event.

This is just a short list, you know, for an early responce to the post. Gimme a couple of days and I'll come up with a few more!

Cheers and Thanks

Mike

Have fell out of the back of the camper once......or twice. But dayum those 5 little aluminum steps are hard to hit when they turn into 10!
Not my fault, I blame Jack................Daniels.


Best was allievieating the camper of its air conditioner about exactly 4 hours before the first night we'd ever camped in the camper where it was hot enough to want AC.

Again, I'm blameless, lol. Just wanted to wash the grime off the old girl and my spotter said all clear to pull into that car wash! Best part was after pulling back out and assessing the damage, our 13 year old sitting in the back seat calmly removes his headphones and says why didn't you just use that outdoor wash bay over there dad?

Wait, best part was actually that the AC didn't get wiped completly off the roof, just sufficiently mashed up where it left a hole in the roof a raccoon could've fit thru and cost probably 1 mpg in fuel economy due to the additional wind resistance of a semi vertical mount AC. Then it rained like a horse p___ing on a flat rock for about 2 days straight!

And I was worried about tire load index.......silly. The real perils come from above!

I’ve done a few of those things while out in the camper. Not saying which ones, but a few. Had a new experience recently the first morning back home after being out a few weeks though. Woke up in my bed, looked around and thought dang, the camper has gotten big! WTH [emoticon]

I cut my lower leg on the sharp edge of the screen door as I walked in closing the door behind me - but it took having the dog get his noggin cut on the same door for me to buy a millfile and round the corners....

I realized how hard it is to be humble.

NRALFR reminded me of one.Related to getting home after being in the camper for 4 months, the **** flush pedal wasn't there on the toilet in the middle of the night. It only took 3 or 4 attempts to realize that the house toilet has a flush lever on the tank![emoticon]
