The Lost Toad

My wife & I started full-time RVing, October 1st, 2016.  We bought a 31′ Forest River Forester and spent our 1st 2-mos on the Oregon and Northern California coast, then went inland, headed for Las Vegas.  Well we needed transportation while parked, so bought a couple bicycles, bike rack, locks, etc.  All’s cool until we winter in San Antonio and start renting cars to go see the River Walk, go shopping and sightseeing, etc.

Well, when we got back to the Seattle area, in May, we bought a vehicle, had it wired for a flat-tow!  Now we’re all set, right?  

First trip, dry camping in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, near Mt. St. Helens, I take a right hand turn and for some reason my “worry-wart” wife looks @ the turn and backup mirror and says, “The car’s not there”!  Naturally, I found out how fast I could stop the rig!!  She had forgotten, in the car’s newness being towed, that the right turn signal turns the right side camera on, instead of the rear.  The car was there, but I sure didn’t laugh at that time!!  I just said, “Don’t do that again, you’ve learned now!”
