It rained a bit over the weekend, so we went on our annual visit to the Painted Hills, hoping the colors would be more vibrant. Didn’t notice a change, but still really cool [1.5 hours from Bend].
I was at a stoplight, watching the cars go by. Along comes one of those long, double decker trucks that transports vehicles. This one had a bunch of wrecked cars..and it’s towing our camper van. Small world. The photo is NO where near as impressive when viewed in person…especially seeing skid marks on all sides, including roof. Got hit right at the propane tank.
Phone call from Ralph: “I’m ok, but I’ve been in a bad car accident.” Sure enough, a few blocks from home, a lady ran a stop sign at a high speed, and hit our camper van. It spun around, rolled and landed on its side. Ralph had to kick out the broken windshield to get out. He seems to be ok, but the van is totaled.
