RV boo-boos: RV industry poster child. NOT!

“Life’s an adventure—Go RVing!” So ran the slogan of the RV industry for some time. One self-described “inept newbie RV-lifer,” Jennifer, might be the candidate for exactly what the industry wouldn’t want to portray.

Jennifer attempted to take her new motorhome up a “ridiculous dirt path” in Idaho. She instead came close to tipping it over, and ended up lodged in a nearby ditch. Fortunately, a passerby stopped to help her out. When—in a nearly miraculous fashion—her cell phone worked in the back country, she was able to summon a tow truck to extricate her from the ditch. At least the cellular industry worked! She concludes, “For being so stupid, I sure am lucky.” [3 pictures]

Dirt road?…That’s a Forest Service highway…She had better stick to the asphalt roads…
I hope she’s having learned and is enjoying our R.V. world.

Perfect counterpoint to the ‘always carry a gun’ crowd from my earlier story retold by Nancy Dixon in todays newsletter. “Fortunately a passerby stopped to help her out.”
