This is not what you need on a Monday
So, I picked up my car from the panel beaters on Friday, the front end all fixed from my short, but deverstating interlude with a wombat.  I needed to pickup feed on Monday so I hooked up the trailer and headed off.  I got to within cooee of town when the truck began to swerve across the road flicking the trailer about and scarring the hell out of me.

I did notice one of my wheels passed me as I was trying to control the beast, also thought that this was not going to end well.  I finbally managed to pull the vehicle up off the road, 500m from where I hit teh wombat, I don't kow what the truck and dog loaded with 20tons of gravel that was right behind me thought - but he never slowed down. 

I need to go back to the spot and have a look around - maybe I'm being drawn to that spot by some kind of force that wants me to see something????

I then spent 6.5hrs awaiting a tow truck due to an adminsitrative error with my road side service, it was only 36 degs, nothing to get hot under the collar about.  It wasn't wasted - I did help a cuple change teh tyre on their trailer and they lent me thier phone to call the cook :)

I'm not sure why this came off, cold be something to do withthe wombat strike, somebody took it off and didbn;t put it back on propery during repairs, somebody trying to steal the tyre (brand new) I don;t know.  All I do know is that I'm in for another round with the insurance company from hell - QBE.
