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?

Well, thanks to the "Standby Sams" of the Good Sam Club. If you belong to the Good Sam Club, they have a list of people who have agreed to be "available." I checked, and a Standby Sam was located 30 miles from where I am. And, guess what, that person just happened to have a pair of crutches and a left leg brace that they no longer needed. That was a miracle and a coincidence. So, I returned the crutches I was "borrowing."

Ankle is less painful, not taking any drugs. Pain is just "annoying" but not bad. The leg brace that the volunteer brought me was a godsend. I put it on and put my velcro boot over the top. I can now stand a bit. I'll try to walk if I can.

I'm still going to try to leave Tues or Weds.
