Hi, after re-reading this story it sounds like one of those jerks who did this on purpose just to get a kick out of freaking someone out. Also, maybe Dan will explain, but this might be what he meant by a HedgeHog.

Nope!

Basically, its a hedgehog! Sometimes he goes camping with us. As they are nocturnal, we really don't see him much. He does make a racket at 3am though! He is about the size of a softball.

Now our iguana is about 5 feet long. He stays home.

My daughter recently told me that dogs in NJ needed to be in seat belts when traveling in a car.

True! Actually, in a harness that buckles into the seat belt slot.

Of course, since they passed the pet-buckle-up law, where the Heck would a New Jersey resident even find that kind of harness? There can't be much of a market for them yet with only one state having the law in place.

To find that type of harness You would have to investigate which N.J. congressman owns stock in the company that manufactures them. Sal.

Back in my Hi-Lo trailer days I had a semi in front of me blow two tires. What I did in effect was a high speed swerve maneuver to dodge the giant tire carcasses in front of me. I didn't use sway control at that time since the Hi-Lo's profile was below the top of my van, and also with its top down had a pretty low center of gravity.

The trailer did the whip as I did the double swerve. I missed the tires. The trailer did one rebound arc as I got the TV straight and then fell right back into line with the van. I pulled over literately shaking since it all happened so fast and quite honestly my reaction was more automatic than planned.

I walked back to check the hitch and connections and found everything was fine. I popped open the door of the trailer and found that the force of the swerve moved the contents of every cabinet against the doors which had all popped open. Those contents were scattered all over the floor of the trailer.

Scarey stuff. After that incident I've tended to make sure that all 18 wheelers get an extra cushion of space between me and them.

Dan and Dawn - glad you guys are ok minus some adrenaline.

I thought I was in trouble towing the trailer home this past Sunday afternoon. As we hit the exit ramp ("s" shaped ramp) from the interstate the rain was coming down hard. It has not rained here in weeks (currently experiencing a drought) and the oils on the road quickly made a slick surface. As I went around the curve the exhaust brake cut-in and the Hensley slipped to the opposite side throwing the trailer weight (30' Classic) and it started to push the rear of the truck around. Luckily some quick steering and throttle solved the issue. Yep - my heart was beating quickly!

Wow! My heart is still pounding after reading that one. I had a close call with a knucklehead like that and the thing that really killed me was that he had the nerve to flip me off after saving his bacon.
