    Wrecked my van

    A dog just appeared! I swerved to miss it, hit a giant curb instead. I was tuned in enough to know there was no other traffic on the road, but sure overlooked that 14" curb!

    Popped both tires on that side. probably more damage, needs mechanical inspection. Meanwhile, insurance pays 80% of cost of rental van w/ handcontrols.

    I had just bought a cellphone, and keep Triple A. Independence is all in the details when you are suddenly single after 27 years.

    Way to plan ahead. One never knows! I came pretty close to loosing it last Saturday. A car crossed the center line, I headed for the ditch. I was running along a six inch drop, waiting for the right spot to get back on the road.......when low and behold! a driveway coming up fast!

    I took the chance and got back on the road, but it was nip and tuck for a few seconds that felt like minutes..... I'm just glad there was nothing coming the other way or I would have had to hit the driveway. Lord, the close calls can make you gray!

    That having AAA is a good idea Betheny. I have'nt had it for years. Is it expensive these days? It would probably be a good idea since I don't drive a new car anymore. In fact it's getting pretty old. The Lord knows a phone call is about all I'd be good for.

    Will it cover you in any car, or just your own?

    Good-oh on the cell phone and AAA, Betheny!
    Things can happen fast.
    I'm very glad that it turned out to be only a nuisance and inconvenience, rather than major problems. There are enough of those all round here.
