Are you superstitious? Do you believe in signs?
Several months ago I headed to Atlanta on Wednesday morning for the Scott's Show pulling the dreaded trailer. Everything seemed fine and 4 1/2 hours later, I pulled up at the show. I usually drop off my trailer the day before the show as they do not allow me to park the trailer in the condominium complex. The trailer did not want to come off the hitch. It was freezing cold and I turned and turned until it just would not turn anymore. I finally managed to inch the truck away, breathed a sigh of relief and pulled away. Six am the next morning, pitch black and sleeting rain and I'm ready to hitch the trailer back up and pull into the building for my allotted set up time. The hitch will not lower. It will only spin and spin and spin. Rushing into the building, I find a friend who is almost finished unloading her large box truck, borrow said truck and begin frantically unloading everything from the trailer onto the truck - in the dark, sleeting rain.
Next month, the trailer has been fixed and I'm off again to Atlanta. There is a crazy merging of lanes combination exit from I-95 to I-16 in Macon. The forecast was for severe weather and I was trying to beat the weather. Part way through the exit people began honking and pointing at me. I immediately pulled over and found this:
Next month, I'm headed to Texas for the Marburger Show. I arrived in Atlanta with no problems and headed out with plans to drive half way, meet my son in New Orleans and had dinner reservations for 8 at Delmonicos. An hour later, a horrific noise and this:
And yes, those are the tires hanging off the back! The opposite side is hanging off the front. It seems the trailer is too wide to sit properly positioned on the ramp. They have to raise and hook it by the axles.
