Adentures with U-Haul (U-Hell?)

Submitted by G-man on 4/22/05 at 12:46 PM. ( ) 69.240.148.44

After 8 long months here in lovely Pennsylvania I finally graduated PIT, and was ready to go home to even more beautiful Washington state.How does one haul 22 mounts cross country you ask? Why in a U-haul trailer of course!
Unfortunately hooking up trailers must be a new procedure for U-Haul employees, and spinning down the confusing nut on the trailer tounge is gosh darn confounding (let's see, was that lefty loosie-righty tighty?)
Fortunately , although it is a small truck, the Toyota Tacoma proves quite capable of stopping runaway U-haul trailers by merely using the tail-lights,tailgate and bumper.Leave it to the Japanese to design tailights that will engulf an entire trailer toungue-should the need arise.
I may someday see Washington again, with a renewed appreciation for its beauty-till then I flounder in U-Hell.

I talked to Shawn earlier this week about hitting the Matanuska valley in July.I will be in Anchorage for a wedding, but have 9 days to beat the rental car.I was going to move there before coming to WA,and just might yet.Hope to come home from that trip with some lifesize.


Yeah way!

When you posted a while back about wanting to hunt sheds in Monta-a-ana, I tried to hook you up with a bud of mine in Havre. Did you guys make contact?

Jeff's a good friend. He will give you my e-mail address if you ask. I talk to him daily. Stay in touch. Wolverine is next up on my list. I won't put it in my house unless I killed it. Lynx & wolf are there(among many others)


Did you not double check the U-Haul workers actions?

Anytime I rent a U-Haul I double check, then about 25 miles down the road do another check. Also cross the saftey chains under the tongue of the trailer, it takes the slack out.
