I saw one as it happened , on the way home from Horse Cavalry event once.... it was big Winnebago motor-home though  
The older style tin box design... it happened on 1-95 about mile or so in front of me.... I saw it flip in a big cloud of dirt & dust and motor home parts....
it was on it's roof and the folks were already crawling out of it .... minor injuries,  but the Motor-home was a sight ! and belongings all over the road and apron... Looked like bomb had hit it.  

I was towing a goose-neck horse trailer, so with all the help from others, the Cops said we were obliged to pull on less we add to the snarl.

Probably had a failure of some sort, axle,tire, along those lines. Have had them here on old ones getting pulled out of the park. Now, a lot of the oldies just get torn down on the spot instead of pulled. Frames sometimes get repurposed, though Roll Eyes

Sure did, Major.  I can't go into any details, but the broad explanation is that the fire is on multiple properties, and now there are legal issues, insurance problems etc.  So, I may be going down in a month or two, or I may decide to say heck with it, and do something else.  We'll see. Smiley

In other news, our dig is coming closer and closer to "daisy pusher" status.  She runs around our meat rabbit cages and snaps at their toes, runs around the turkey coop and tries to get them, and chases the chickens around the chicken yard.  We usually just apply a steel BB for these offenses, but yesterday she got out of our yard, and into the neighborhood.  She chased some one of our neighbor's chickens until he chased her off with a well applied broom.  After that, she got into another neighbor's yard and wanted to play with his dog.  The problem is, this neighbor is a K-9 unit in the sheriff's department, and his dog is recovering from a stabbing.  Shocked

Our dog should thank her lucky stars for heavy gauge chicken wire and vigilant deputies with pressure washers.  Undecided

Afternoon y'all.
Bought the '88 Suburban last night. My co-worker and I stayed at his parent's house last night. I got home 'bout 11:30.
The body and frame are in better shape than I expected. It came from NV and has been stored during the winters in WI. It runs kinda rough. My co-worker's father advised new plugs and wires. I'll do that in a week or so.

A friend of mine has a .30 Blackhawk, says it's the LOUDEST firearm he's shot.

The mobile home was on a fairly narrow 2 lane road, I guess the driver was trying to keep it all on his side of the yellow line, probably got the wheels of the road and onto an embankment. Don't know for sure, though. When I went by there was nobody there, just an upside down trailer and lots of orange warning signs, tow truck was already gone too.

In other words.......TOAST. Turning it back up right would probably just make it worse. Probably will have to be torn down in-situ. Roll Eyes Tongue

Yup, it's toast-back end is torn completely "down" to floor level. Probably they'll just flip it over, tow off what remains, then pick up the scraps in a dump truck.

Lots of people around here used to live in these old ratty trailers-but when the scrap prices went so high, a lot of them got all the metal peeled off and sold, then the remains often just got abandoned.

Good Morning gentlemen.  Coffee is on the brew and tea is icing down.  Smiley

The weather is supposed to be around 90 today, with scattered clouds and 10mph wind.  The alps may get some (more?) lightening, so CalFire and the USFS helicopters are on stand-by down in the big city.  The National Guard armory has also issued advanced warnings to its members that they may activate to fight fires this week.

My plans for today include driving an hour to set up camp for the county fair, driving an hour home, then magically disappearing to my fishing hole before I get roped into something like...washing turkeys. Roll Eyes

I did manage to take my little brother out to do some scouting for deer season last night.  We went to "my spot" where I do most of my hunting and waited.  It's a bowl on the side of the mountain, about 250 yards across at the widest, and perhaps twice that from top to bottom.  We normally see about 15 does there at any given time, and sometimes a couple of nice (read "4x4 or better) bucks.  The does were there, but only one little forked horn.  That's okay, though.  Deer season doesn't start for another month anyhow. Roll Eyes

All the slick cars are startin’ to head out.  Weather was perfect all week, just a little on the warm side the first part.  Had 57 to 580 thousand cars registered for this year’s event spread out vover six different venues.  All in all it was a very smooth Hot August Nights.

Sunny and 87 today.

Yeah, that was a slip of the fingers.  Supposed to be 58 thousand.  This was the 30th  Hot August Nights and we were up about 2 thousand cars over last year.

Take off another zero, and you still have more cars than any two of the other towns in my county put together.  Shocked 

All went well today.  No storming, weather was about 90 for the afternoon.  All fair preparations went well and we leave tomorrow for the week.

Morning all.

Coffee has been drunk, cereal has been eaten, laundry has been...almost packed. Roll Eyes  We don't leave until noon, so there's a few more hours for packing.  Plus, it's only 45 minutes away. 

On a side note, turkeys look really strange when they're wet.  Grin

My oops was just a little compared to the one the paper made.  They used the word thousand instead of hundred in the count of registered cars!  They printed a correction in today's paper.  I was beginning to wonder where they could park 57 thousand cars around here.
