We retired last October and don't miss work one bit. You will love it.

A guy I worked with a long time ago taught me this for backing up trailers and it really helped me. Put one hand on the bottom of the steering wheel. Don't turn around and look, use the mirrors. Now just move your hand in the direction you want the trailer to go. Once it gets turning "follow it around". Most importantly go slow. You will get the hang of it. I'm still not great at it but can get it done without any laughs from the peanut gallery.
