Out of the driveway



The trailer is hitched and on the road. We practiced backing up and driving around the block. See that ditch. Ditches are on both sides of the road with a little driveway from the road to the house. Backing the TT into the driveway takes sheer force of will.

We are so thrilled to finally learn to hitch it up and begin to learn to back it up. After asking, we found our massage therapist is an expert. He was here to teach us this morning.

LOLOL...if we left today, we would have to call William, the massage therapist to back it back in the driveway. But camping will come soon. I am renovating the inside. Pics of that soon.

Ah yes...been there, done that. Well, actually, do it everytime I go camping. I have a 5 foot deep and 5 foot wide ditch. A standard size driveway and a standard size road. I've gotten pretty good, but I keep my wife back there and tell her to start jumping up and down and yelling like a madwoman if my tires get too close to the edge of the driveway. It's an adventure every time.

That is the way to learn how to back up. I would also consider a wide open parking lot on Sunday when no one is at work. Usually any large office building have good parking lots.

Don't forget to look up when backing. Large tree limbs etc.
Also get you communications/ signals from you spotter.
My wife and I have 2 small walkie talkie's which we use.
