Cautionary tale- trailer maintenance.
Just got home from a little mayhem. Heading out for a Sunday put in on San Juan. Hub came loose on my trailer and welded pieces of the bearings to the axel. Smokey wheel with axel grease everywhere. Got a reasonable tow back to rifle truck and trailer ( happened just outside of parachute) from ace towing. He even attempted to fix it for me at autozone but couldn't pop the piece off the axel. Part of my party was leaving Carbondale tomorrow, so they came
Down and grabbed all my gear. We Borrowed a new trailer, all set to leave tomorrow and will have no prob making Sunday put in.
Annnnywaaaays, friendly reminder to Go get your bearings re packed and trailer checked out. Lucky this didn't happen around Dewey bridge, where we were planning on camping tonight. I'm sure some of you are on top of this stuff, but if I save just one other group from highway shoulder drama. I've done my job.
