Home with the fiver

Today a friend used my truck to haul our Cameo home, but when he got to where we keep it he let me back into the back lot, it was a great feeling of accomplishment to do that. Not ready to drive yet but gettting there.

Way to go Dianne! Backing up is the hardest for me. If you can back it up, driving it forward will be a piece of cake.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I like that. You've done more backing than going forward.

As others said learning how to back a trailer is very important so it sounds like you are on the right trail.

You'll find out at the campgrounds when you back in correctly the first time nobody will have been watching. However, when you have a bad time backing in, and everybody does every now and then, the whole campground will be watching.

So get there early so you can watch the circus. Great sport watching people park their rigs.

NO,NO!! I didn't back it in,Tom did!! He isn't suppose to drive for at least 6 weeks after surgery,maybe even longer. He has weakness and limited vision on the left side,so he did get some directions from the friend that towed it in,but he did great!
