Everything Goes Wrong

Have you ever had a trip when everything goes wrong? Dog gets car sick, grey water tank over flows, water pump springs a leak, slides quit working, etc., but still had a good time.

I've had a trip like that, but it was in an airplane, not the MH.

Well if something doesn't go wrong with the MH then it's something we forgot. In most cases you can do without what ya forgot - however 2 trips ago we forgot the margarita mix and we were in the middle of no where. I thought about just doing shots but that usually leads to an early evening!! Luckily there was a c-store a few blocks away that actually had mix! And we found that using a iPhone- lol

Highway 101 in Oregon, they make the bridges about 2 feet narrower than the roads... 18 wheeler coming at me in the oncoming lane. As we passed, I nudged the front tires to the left and they missed the curb on the bridge.

The back didn't follow soon enough, caught a 10 inch or so curb at about 40 mph, damned near flipped the coach.

I've since learned pretty well where the corners of my coach are.

SPI Coaster, I usually carry diet sprite and lime juice. Not as good as a "real" margarita but is pretty good for a low cal, sugar free margarita, and most places sell those ingredients. Just saying..

My honeymoon with my first wife was a situation where everything went wrong. She contracted a viral infection two weeks before the wedding, the most intimate details of my honeymoon planning were inadvertently relayed to my father (we worked in the same office and had the same first name) the blushing bride got carsick on the way, and the hotel was filled with a family reunion full of people that had the same last name as me, but were not related.

I think that scared me off of a honeymoon for my current spouse, whom I've been married to for nearly 23 years.
