OK, technically it was a tree but it looks like I hit a rock – or a boulder, which I’ve already confessed to the world and the insurance company. I’ve been reading true insurance claim quotes to make myself feel better. I’ll share a few with you here. They only help a little since I fear they place me in questionable company. For example:
Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don’t have.
The photo on the left could aptly be named RVBD – RV Before Debbie.
As you know, I managed to mangle the new RV, 10 days after buying it.
If you’ve been reading along, you know I tangled with a tiny palm tree on the way to this site. It was a small but mighty palm, leaving it’s frawn marks all across the back side.
I started to slow down but the traffic was more stationary than I thought.
The second photo is RVAD – RV After Debbie. Sad photo, that one.
Time was tight, so we drove straight here after the mishap and prayed that the kitchen slide, which took the hardest hit, would slide out. It did.
I don’t know if it will slide in? Sure hope so! We’ve been here for exactly a month, with a week or so to go. At this point, we don’t know if our rig is getting called back to Louisiana or will stay in Texas.
If it goes to LA – they probably won’t need gate guards. Either way, we’ll drop the RV off at the repair shop when we leave here. Which means we need a place to stay, and hopefully, to work.
I’m wondering about renting an RV from Cruise America? They have a branch in Houston. It wouldn’t be ideal for gate guarding since the smaller ones don’t have a bedroom door. They don’t even have a bedroom – just a bed, but I think it’s doable.
I looked at some of the other RV rental sites – $400 a day! Yikes! We’d be better off not working and paying $110 for a motel in Houston that takes pets.
Even though Henry doesn’t shed, never goes to the bathroom inside and makes less mess than I do, finding a pet friendly motel or RV is another issue.
Any ideas? Right now, I’m leaning towards Cruise America. Do you know anyone who’s rented from them? Or anyone in the Houston area that has an RV for rent if I promise not to drive and have Heidi do all the driving? 😉 Any input is welcome!
I was backing my car out of the driveway in the usual manner, when it was struck by the other car in the same place it had been struck several times before.
I asked the repair shop about rentals – they had no idea. We just fix ’em, Lady.
They did say they think it will take up to 2 weeks to fix the 5th wheel. Yes, I really made a muck of things, didn’t I? On the up side, they’ll fix the run away toilet and see if there’s a mouse housing complex in the works somewhere.
I was driving along the motorway when the police pulled me over onto the hard shoulder. Unfortunately I was in the middle lane and there was another car in the way.
I was just getting to the point where I could look at the backside without feeling sick when we discovered that I’d also scratched the sticky-out fender on the truck. I hadn’t noticed the scratches underneath the caliche. I’m going to ignore those. I can’t afford another deductible or more Prilosec. They’re just cosmetic and there’s always caliche in Texas. It could have been worse…
The pedestrian ran for the pavement, but I got him.
