This last campground, Frontiertown in Ocean City, MD turned out to be quite a test. I thought it was going to be easy - the site map showed we had an end site and that our row was a little longer than the one beside of it. I figured I'd pull up past it and drop back into it from the road beside. I was... how do you say it? WRONG.

Wife and I both watched as I intentionally came as close to a recycling container as possible. I say there were "inches" left. She laughed and said it wasn't even an inch. I'm pretty sure she's more right than I am on that one.

But, we got it back into the spot with 2 tries and onlookers beside and in-front of us (so much for a Thursday arrival for less of a crowd!). I got out after it was back in the spot and as we talked admitted, "Holy carp, that went well." She reminded me that I still needed to shimmy to one side about 2' and I shouldn't celebrate yet.

She's right - this is the move that I struggle with the most. Fortunately, she's a heck of a lot better at this than I am. She told me how to do it (to the right and then back to the left and back it up) and sure as snot - she (well, I) nailed it.

We got congratulations for the folks in the motorhome next to us - said they had a hard enough time with their site in just the MH. I felt like we deserved a standing ovation.

Good going. Try pulling a 53 ft AND a 28 ft trailer thru a town with traffic. I've been in places where you just scratch your head and wonder how it's going to happen. It all works out in the wash so to speak.

I'm all alone in the room and LITERALLY laughing out loud!

We call each other on the phone - either speakerphone or the car's bluetooth system.
