Today is day #3 of my “troubles”, and it is by far the worst. I can’t seem to get comfortable in any position, and right now I wish I had a strong narcotic pain killer rather than the ibuprofen. Maybe by tomorrow I’ll feel differently though.
My thanks to all those who have wished me a speedy recovery and who sympathized with my plight. I just wish I had been aware enough to avoid it – I can see in my mind exactly what I did, how I was doing it, and where I went wrong. I lay awake last night thinking of how I can do it correctly in the future, but never came up with a positive answer. Instead I got out of bed and began to write down all those things you think of in the dead of night, that you forget when you are wide awake and trying to make a list.
Here are some photos of the loading up process:
I should be out driving it around right now, but a couple of people came by to visit and that tired me out a bit, combined with being awake in the middle of the night last night and up earlier than usual this morning. To top it all off, the bright sun went behind clouds, and I see much better on a sunny day, so I will test drive tomorrow. Maybe I’m just too afraid to try it out yet? No reason for that, when I had no problems with towing a 34′ fifth wheel. I think I’m slightly overwhelmed with the mounting process, and I know it is something I will never try to do myself.
