We packed up and headed east to Oklahoma City. Towing our little back country 14 foot cargo trailer on Interstate 40 I began to notice that the trailer appeared to be trying to turn left as we were driving straight down the road. After hauling some local cargo and backing and getting our son, Paul to spot me backing into a spot, he says to me, “Hey Man, your trailer looks like it is turning all the time your backing up.” After securing the unit, we crawled under and discovered a broken leaf spring! With Paul’s help, we jacked up the broken side and removed the broken spring. After some calls and internet searches, I found a leaf spring store in down town OKC. We brought the broken one with us and the leaf spring guy told us it looked as if the spring had been cracked for some time and had just finally broke. Armed with the exact replacement, we made short work of installation and even adjusted the brakes. The following day, Leo, our grandson having watched us remove and install the leaf spring declared that he needed to work on the trailer, “Come on Guys.” he said. So we first went to the garage and after gathering all of the equipment he said he needed, we soon realized he had more than we could carry so Leo, being ever so resourceful, recruited his farm tractor and wagon to perform the heavy lifting.

We live and travel full time in our fifth wheel or cargo trailer. We work for the Lord Jesus Christ in Disaster Relief Ministry. When not doing any of the above we try to have as much fun as we can. Possible items you might find here, in no particular order, dirt bikes, quads, hiking, camping, desert living, building projects, stained glass projects, our family, Bible study, RVing stuff, nutrition comments, and just about anything else we can think of....
