Rucio's new blankie

My last trailer cover, a horse trailer cover made of that standard polypropylene fabric, turned paper-like in the UV or whatever, developed a bunch of huge rips so I decided it was a bit too far gone to salvage. I found a reasonably priced new cover from a guy on ebay who markets these specifically for FGRVs among other types of trailers. I got the Scamp 13' model, which I suspected was not a lot different from the Burro 13' model and $20 cheaper

I have been thankful for the southern exposure of our U-Haul South Philly Self Storage Center of Excellence parking space - no snow has accumulated on the roof, and my little solar trickle charger is keeping the battery alive and well.

My fashion accessories there are a result of cracking off the end of my fibula 5 and a half weeks ago when I made the incredibly stupid decision to go out on a training run when there was a lot of ice falling from the sky. I now have a bunch of hardware in there and am just getting back on my feet this week. No march marathon for me (I was aiming for the Bataan memorial death march in White Sands) and there goes my ankle modeling career. It would also have ruined my plans to do a couple of winter camping weekends at Assateague Island, but those plans had in mind winter temperature lows of sat 30f, not 10f.

At first I thought you had ski poles but upon enlargement I see your issue. Sorry Jen.
