I have a weird mix of the two stories - a slip & FVRH.....
Easdale weekend, got back home at just after midnight, was pushing the trailer into the garage, drizzly night and to this day I still don't know if I put my foot on a wet leaf, a slug or what, but out it went from under me, and down I went....
I still don't know if I met the Jockey wheel or winch handle on the way down with my left ear..... First I knew of it (having landed on my shoulder it was eclipsing the pain in my almost not attached earlobe!) HAving picked myself up, cursed quietly under mny breath & finished parking the trailer was the huge puddle of blood on the drawbar as I went to pull the garage door down!
Into the house, checked the mirror and 2.5 hrs later was thanking the team at FVRH A&E for (literally) stitching me back together.
As it was a Saturday night I also got the feeling they were glad to see someone whose injury wasn't a direct result of being ratted after a night in Falkirk!) One of my "Fellow customers" was entertaining from where I was sitting, but I'm so glad I wasn't on duty in there!
Anyway all back to as normal as it's ever likely to get. Now seriously looking at an electric winch to do that bit of the day's entertainment!
Just goes to show - it's not the big "mid Atlantic / 30 foot waves" kind of accidents that most of us see......
Hope you guys get back up & running soon.
