Mini me... by Torklift Jen
Looking back to my humble beginnings of truck camping there were many learning opportunities and tips that I should have picked-up on in regard to all this truck camping stuff.
I am reminded that all I really needed to know about truck camping, I learned in kindergarten.
Like coloring, stay between the lines on the highway and go a little crazy when you’re off road.
Don’t run with scissors, but it’s okay to run up a sturdy set of scissor steps.
If you got bad suspension you were in some heavy-duty trouble and you were going to be in a world of hurt when you got home from school. Now with good suspension you can carry a heavy load home and not feel a thing.
Kissing a toad will not result in a prince charming and will result in me looking very silly kissing my little tow behind car.
I learned that if you tie your toy truck bumper to a string attached to your bike and take off down the driveway, the bumper will get pulled off the truck and the part will end up in your baby brother’s mouth and then you’re in a heap of trouble from mom. The worst! Frame-mounted tie downs are always best.
Pick up your toys and someday your toys will be pickups.
Training wheels are not for babies. They were just good practice for driving my dually Ford F350.
Time-out is a good thing if you’re prepared with your best toys and can sit and enjoy the quiet.
I think I’ve got all these new concepts down now and can put them to good use as I grow into “Torklift Jen”.
