our vacation system crashed

You may have read my earlier Instagram post, which went like this:

Photos like this should always begin with "no one was seriously injured". It was a very sudden end to our vacation trip, thanks to a young man who was blinded by the evening sun. Now we have a car jammed full of camping stuff at a tow company in Logansport ... We're working out the logistics. Do I need to tell you a story will follow later?

Which is fine, but things change, and I did say "serious" injuries. I have the traditional airbag rash, strained forearm muscle, and a mysterious gash on my right index finger that we just can't figure out. Emily's right foot is bruised and swollen, and we're in the process of getting an x-ray, just in case.

The dog--and the other driver--seem fine.

That car looks very scary, I'm glad no one was seriously hurt.

It was at least a fairly low speed--and with traffic that heavy, we're lucky we didn't get hit a second time. Getting sore now, though!

I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm glad you and Emily are fine. Do you have another car in the meantime? It might take a little while to get back to Situation Normal.

My daughter brought us home, and the next day the insurance company got us a rental. We used that for the hour and a half drive back to get all our camping gear and other stuff out of the car, which we'll likely never see again. At this moment Emily's getting fitted for a special shoe, and I've got a fun bandage on my finger--and we're both getting very sore ... But still, there's lots worse that could have happened.

Ah, thanks. Considering how much driving we do, I have to wonder whether it wasn't just a matter of time.

Yikes! End to a vacation indeed. Glad to hear no serious injuries.

Take is easy now.

Emily's on crutches now, so we don't have a choice but to take it easy! The "we're okay" aspect of it crashed pretty fast the second day.

Glad you are both OK-ish. That looks scary.

It was quite a shock in the moment, and pretty scary afterward.

Well, Emily ended up on crutches; we don't have a choice but to take it easy.
