Seems that campers and cabins are quite the explosion hazard.....

Always do a safety check before leaving for your trip. A little dishsoap and water is all you need to detect a gas leak. It will form bubbles over the leak site. And invest in a hard plastic propane tank cover--not the soft vinyl ones. It will help protect the tank(s) from taking small holes from gravel thrown up by the tires of the towing vehicle. Campers are fire traps, and will burn to the steel frame in less than 5 minutes. An exploding tank is one of my biggest fears when we go camping, as the tanks are beneath one of the beds. If you smell any gas at all, turn it off, and extinguish any open flames immediately, including your campfire.

Ward E. Tigner is my uncle. His age is 73, not 55.

Just was wondering if anyone had an update on his condition. We stayed next to them in the campground on Friday and Saturday and he seemed like a nice man.

Ward is my father-in-law. We have been here since Tuesday. He remains critical yet stable. We appreciate all the thoughts and prayers. He is a wonderful man and we remain hopeful he will fully recover.
