RV rims are torqued at 400-450 pounds. I have also heard and read that they should be re-torqued but I'm almost as dumb as Tim and did not have mine re-torqued.

With that said, ever see a picture or video of a truck tire running down the highway all by itself? Can and does happen so I would put my money on whoever changed that/those tires did not torque them right. Can happen.

So when was the last time any of you found yourself suddenly flat on your back?
A few years ago my neighbor set a stack of 10-12 of those hard plastic chairs out by the road. We often will do that with various items and Miraclesly they disappear. As I was on my way to deer camp I thought those would be great around camp. Now some were cracked so we discarded those and ended up with 7-8 sturdy chairs that everyone uses around the campfire. Setting out in the weather year round has evidently taken its toll on these plastic chairs. A few of the younger guess have leaned back in some and broken off the legs. Myself, I was setting level, visiting with a couple of guys when we hear a snap, and before I could make any move to get up. Yep flat on my back!

That was Monday, today it hits me, I can barely move.

Tim,
When was that last time you weighed yourself on an accurate scale?


Okay, just had to throw some humor (humour for Martin) in there. Not a funny thing to happen, don't ask me how I know.
See your local pharmacist. Percodan worked for me. Not from the chair breaking but flat on my back for 96 hours at a time for Osteo.

I don't like those plastic chairs at all and try to avoid them.

DOORWAY TRIGGERS:

"Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was?
Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.
Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts andmemories from the next. Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale."

It's not age, it's the door! Whew! Thank goodness for studies.

I believe I have heard that study before & as I recall, I tried returning to the prior room, thinking the memory would return.. To NO avail!

However, once I sat down, that triggered the memory - so I get up and return to the other room again --- You guessed it, memory block again...

Dave be wary of revolving doors, they could done some major psychological damage!

Tim, I had a rolling stool slide out from under me as I was sitting down in the garage about 15 years ago. That was the first compression fracture in my back. I remember seeing a quick flash of stars. And it hurt for months. Maybe you should get an X-ray?

Luckily I took the blunt of the fall across the upper back and shoulders. The parts I didn't have trouble with.

I'm just sore, could of also been aggravated by the two deer I've loaded in the back of my Ranger since the fall. I'm telling you, deer camp ain't for sissies!

Tim, I've just read a story on Sky News (UK) of the death of a hunter near Yellville Arkansas who was attacked by a deer he thought he had killed. Was that a sad coincidence with the story you told of a 'dead' hog rising or the same event?
