    I've only skim-read your original post about cleaning the van and reversing problems.

    At least you didn't reverse over the ladder like some idiot would :Laughing:

    Haggers don't beat yourself up, your running a very large rally, running marathons, working, being a husband and dad, take a deep breath and give yourself a pat on the back, for all you do right, your no idiot. :Smile:

    At least, with no ladder, you'll not have any illegal immigrants on the roof when you return from skiing!:thumb:

    And it could have been worse, your Fiat could have juddered before you ran the ladder over!

    Accidents happen. Some a lot worse. There were no fatalities. Metal and plastic can be repaired x
