Wireless Backup Cam - Funny Story
Just a little funny story....
I have a inexpensive wireless backup cam set up on the back of my travel trailer. It's not a "great" unit, but it works... I have it suction cupped to my windshield out of my field of vision, but close enough to peek at it here and there when I want clarification of where the ass end of my trailer is. Anyways...
Was driving between Amarillo and Ft Worth on Saturday, and glanced at my monitor and noticed a car following me very closely. I mean this vehicle looked to have it's nose under my bumper it was so close! I did a little swerve and looked back into my mirrors and there was nothing there, not even a shadow. I looked back to the monitor and the car was gone, and the screen flickered and it was back again - then it flickered back out. That's when I noticed a motor home going in the opposite direction with that same TOAD attached to it's back bumper. I chuckled at the odds at which something like this would happen.
It was then that I realized that if I saw a car behind me, imagine the driver of the motor home when he glanced at his/her monitor and the car was gone! I laughed even harder thinking of what must have run through their head if they noticed the screen like I did. I would have had a heart attack and crashed if the TOAD that I'd seen behind me for miles and miles and miles was suddenly gone.
