No, I wasn't intoxicated.

I'm camp hosting right now. The day after Labor Day I fell and sprained my left foot to the point where I have some MINOR (according to the doctor) torn ligaments. I was supposed to leave September 11, but I still cannot walk on my foot. I'm on crutches. The rangers let me stay an extra week, said it would be helpful to have a host here. Doctor said it would hurt for two weeks. I hope they are right.

I travel solo, so I don't have a spouse to set up and take down the RV. Trying to do this while on crutches would be not so good. I'm hoping after this weekend I'm at least at the limping stage. Driving isn't a problem, it's the trying to set up an RV while on crutches and wearing a velcro boot.

I was fortunate in that a friend was visiting me at the park the day I fell. Friend took me to the doctor and helped me out in the hosting stuff. After friend left, trying to get around on crutches is exhausting but I'm managing.

Anyone else have an RWI experience?

Ok, when I was about 15 and staying at a campground with my dad and sister, I was running in the dark, stepped on a rock and rolled my ankle. It hurt some, but on the 3rd day I felt good enough to play some tennis. Of cource, I stepped on a tennis ball with the same ankle and REALLY hurt it. It swelled up like an orange and I couldn't walk on it.

At the same campground the next year (it was a membership place we visited every year), I reached for the side of the pool and dislocated my shoulder. Dad had to drive me 30 miles to the nearest hospital.

Do those count?
