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?

GUILTY - well, almost. My wife drives the motorhome, I drive the car. A couple years ago, we were camping in southern Indiana on our way to Pigeon Forge. She tripped over something that should not have been there, but it was a state park and they allow tree roots to encroach upon walking paths. She drive herself to the urgent care in town (I had to watch the two kids). They said she fractured her wrist and gave her some vicodin. Next morning she was to go to the local doctor. We checked out of the state park and drove up to the doctors office only to find that they take unscheduled patients after 4PM. We expected to be in Pigeon Forge by 4PM, so she got some more vicodin and cradled her fractured wrist and off we went. The only real issue was Louisville, Lexington, Knoxville, then the stop and go down US441, but the vicodin helped. When we got home, she had surgery the next day, a couple of pins and she can almost get the same range of motion.
