The past few months have been some of the hardest for Good Ole George and I - both emotionally and financially. Was planning on heading for warmer climates as I can't stand the cold. Then my brother-in-law fell off a trailer and broke his neck so headed to Washington State to help out as the hospital they air-flighted him to was an hour and a half from their home. He had an angel watching over him that day. He was in surgery approx. 14 hours but came through with flying colors. No paralysis and is doing physical therapy and whatever else he thinks he can get away with (think my sister has eyes in the back of her head!)

After I returned to Idaho, spent a few days in the Boise VA Hospital due to a service related injury and have to go back in January for surgery. At the RV Park, I was way down at one of the ends and while in the hospital, had quite a few parts that relocated themselves to another RV. I have never stolen a thing in my life and can't even comprehend what drives a person to do such a despicable act. It wasn't the reflectors, sewer hose or the other little things that bothered me so much as the leaf spring U-Bolt and nuts did. If I had not noticed they were missing and drove somewhere, couldn't I have lost my axle? I can't stop thinking about what would/could have happened to George and I!

Ben, this is really a good RV park. I should have let management or my neighbors know I was in the hospital. The park would have stepped up patrols and did a walk around my RV to see if anything was out of place. They helped me get the parts and have also put up another street light. The spot is no longer used for long term residents either. They did way more than I expected them to do. I learned that getting to know your neighbors goes a long way towards feeling safe and secure also. Another lesson learned the hard way...
