    How you know your day is going bad.

    Here's a picture of what happened to an unlucky camper at Pismo Coast Village in Pismo Beach CA in the first week of January. Due to a downpour of rain coupled with some high winds, two trees were uprooted. Luckily no one was hurt in this incident, but I think those campers will be looking for a new trailer. PCV staff says that two trees fell that day. The good thing is there`s a Grand Design dealer a few miles down the road.

    We`ll be going there next week, let's hope for nice weather.

    Stiff happens just glad it was not us. That is a nice park (or was when we stayed there).

    Wow! Really surprised the rig held the weight of that tree off the ground. Glad no one was hurt.

    El rojo, I was thinking the same thing. I've seen mobile homes and block homes not fare as well as this rig. Glad no one was hurt.

    Yep that would be a bad day. Also not the time to find out how good your insurance is. Likewise surprised that the trailer held the weight of that tree. Must have been a slow fall.
