Over the past couple of days, I saw a guy towing a toy hauler, loaded with a couple of ATV's, obviously without a WDH, his tongue was almost scrapping the ground. A few hours later, I get passed by another yahoo, doing 65, and his trailer is swaying so much, it looks like he's rocking a cradle.
I just thought I'd share, and say once again, many thanks for all your helpful hints, and tips. They have made my travels safe, fun, and ALMOST worry free.
Absolutely agree! Seems like you find the largest number of idiots on the road over a holiday weekend - which is the very reason we stay home. These people have no clue and are just heading to "party hardy". Our DFs that we used to camp with have turned into boaters and are at the river this weekend - no thanks, think I'll pass on that. We're just going to have a nice, quiet weekend, grilling burgers and enjoying being out of the line of fire. Happy 4th!!

Actually "Stupid" is something that there is no vaccination for, not removeable by surgical proceedures and it appears not to be "bred" out of a family by 2 smart people having children, so it must be a recessive gene!
"Stupid" knows no racial, cultural or ethic barriers, doesn't seem to go away as the stupid person ages, is a leading cause of accidental death and unwanted pregnacys.
And ever since our very first human experience with "Stupid" was when Adam, despite being warned by God, took a bite of that apple anyway..we have been stuck with stupid people!
What are you gonna do!

If you spend much time on the road you can't HELP but see lots of inadequate towing rigs out there. Probably the most common is the "V" shaped outfit with the back of the tow vehicle taking a bow and aiming headlights at passing airplanes. I try to get away from them as fast as possible and just HOPE they (and anyone around them) make it safely to their destination (and that their destination is nowhere near where I'm going )

We used to camp at a state park about an hour from home. Each time we were there it seemed there was another family there that would pull a really large popup with a Volvo sedan. DH stopped to talk to them once when his curiosity got the best of him. Seems they also live about an hour away and just tow it on the 4 lane highway that has an exit into town and then the relatively short distance to the park. He insisted it towed just fine. Scary part is he had no sway control and no WD. We still refer to this fellow from time to time when we see other people towing with a less-than-safe looking set up.
fordsooperdooty...What are a stupid man's famous last words? -- "Hey y'all, watch this!"
I thought that phrase included "Hold my beer" in it somewhere.
I passed a camper about the size of my Kodiak that was being towed by an older Ford Ranger. It had a WD hitch on it that was cranked up tight and appeared to be towing fairly well, but how it was getting up the hills around here is beyond me.
