Not 10 miles from the house, and glad we had good brakes

We were just leaving town last Friday going on a little long weekend camping trip and the new axle & brakes on the old Scamp paid off. We came around a tree-lined curve on a back country road to see a garbage truck stopped cold in the road, and a pickup truck coming alongside in the other lane. With ditches on each side and nowhere to go I had to just stand on the brakes and stop quickly. Everything worked as it should and there was no particular drama except the guy loading garbage in the back of the truck may have had to change his shorts.

I might've needed a towel after that one too!

I'll say. Glad everyone's all right and that your axle and brakes worked like a charm. If it would have been my situation, a pair of depends or otherwise adult diaper would have come in handy for me.
