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?

I don't know about others, but if you arrived in a campground, came over and asked for help getting setup or loading up to leave, I would be very happy to help you.

I think this would be the same way for most RVers I know. Only thing would depend on what you needed such as with a 5th wheel or Motorhome. I can do it on a 5th wheel and help follow instructions on a motorhome to connect up your service needs.

If you need to travel, ask someone in the campgound with a similar RV and hit the road.

There is a long story behind this.. Maybe some other time.


Edit: checked your blog.. Looks like you have a MH... so it should be even easier. All needed would be leveling if necessary and shore services.
