Wow, that is tragic.
Praise God he protected you, and the rest of your pathfinder group. If we could only know how often God has stepped in and kept us safe.
Going to the North Pacific Union Camporee last fall we had a miracle. My dad was driving my club's old cookshack. Coming over a mountain pass, the bus was behind, and all the kids were having lots of fun. We noticed the pathfinder cookshack starting to fishtail. It didnâ€™t improve, and soon was jerking around the sturdy F250 ford. The wheels of the trail seemed to bounce up in the air from side to side. Of course, all the kids started praying. My dad was able to accelerate miraculously away from disaster. The bus driver said afterwards he had never seen a trailer fishtail that bad and recover. The way we had hurriedly packed it unevenly that morning. We were able to repack and it was fine the rest of the trip. I was very thankful that my dad was safe, and our camping gear and food wasnâ€™t all over the highway.

That is amazing. I'm glad everything was ok. Always pack the trailer carefully. I have experienced the end result of a trailer that wasn't packed so well. Now, I almost always pack the trailer "my way." I was instructed on how to do it once. Now we never have problems because I have passed on the "trailer packing knowledge" to others (Now I don't always have to pack the trailer myself.).
