File Under: What Were You Thinking?

I apologize in advance for the blurry photos that follow; I had to take them quickly since our neighbors were inside their trailer at the time I took them.

The scenario; a wet, gravel-over-dirt campsite that slops downward from the back going down towards the front. Which means an unstable base for your RV. Most RVs have jacks of one type or another to stabilize the RV and keep it level. However, they are not meant to hold your vehicle in place.

Non-campers may not "see" what I'm referring to but anyone who has set up a trailer or motorhome should pick up on it right away.

Do you see it? No? There are no wheel chocks to prevent this trailer from rolling down the hill if the mud underneath shifts at all. Inexperience? Stupidity? Nonchalance? Who knows? We will be leaving before our neighbors do so we'll miss the show that may well happen if they crank up the jacks before they hitch up, losing what little anchor they have. Good luck with that.

Envisioning one of those babies getting away is a scary thought.
