This is a true story....

Thanksgiving week I went to the desert for our annual gathering. Since I had some time off, I thought I go early and get some quality time in our need rig.

I met one of my friends at a rendevous point just after dark. We found a spot and parked for the night. Now it is pitch black in the desert on a Tuesday and hardly anyone around.

Had a nice snack and dinner and off to bed. Awoke to a beautiful sunrise and walked around to find a large enough area to accomodate at least a 12 RVs with trailers. Located a beautiful site but it was kind of difficult to get to. There was not really a road to it but that what made it so appealling. It was off the beaten path.

My fellow camper took the lead and I was following. During the evening I had taken some 8 oz tonic water glass bottles out to make some adult beverages. I put a 6 pack in the cabinet above the sink. You can probably image what happen next on a rough desert trail.

One dip too many and multiple explosions from the back of the RV. I turned to look back because something hit me in back of the head! What I saw was foaming water, glass pieces and shards everywhere! My heart sank as this RV is less than a month old and I have tonic water and glass everywhere. Tonic does contain sugar so now I have a sticky, messing new RV in the dusty desert. Great!

It took me three hours to clean the mess up. Thank goodness I brought my big vacum cleaner with me because I know I would not have been able to get all of the shards of glass up with out it.

So if a bottle of tonic water can make such a mess, I hate to see what a real grenade could do!
