Oh My Gosh! I haven't laughed this hard in ages! Y'all just tickle me!
I even read some of the responses to my hubby... we just rolled with laughter!

Guess it's all sooo funny because we have all been there...more than once!

I went over to a site next to me when someone was parking his unit and before I could say anything he told me to buzz off.

So, I watched him get all settled in, disconnect his trailer, put the jacks down, slides out, power hooked up, awning out and when he went to connect the sewer, it was plugged. Which was what I was going to tell him.

When my wife and I travel by plane it's almost always to a place on water. We like to pack a cooler and go sit by a boat launch. Never fails to entertain us for a while................

Sounds like my DH wrote some of these. Having to give him directions is almost grounds for divorce! I love it when another camper offers to help, and I think DH does too. He seems to accept directions from someone else much easier than he does from me, even though they probably tell him the same things; the TT gets situated much quicker with fewer temper tantrums and everyone is happy. So, fellow campers, please don't stop offering to help when someone seems to be having a difficult time getting into a spot. If they don't appreciate the offer, it's their loss.

I have a wireless camera (vison stat Mobile awerness) to help me hook up my trailer to the TV so I dont have to keep getting out of the truck and like someone said - I get out of the truck and ass the camping spot before I back in since I do not have a DW and my 5 year old isnt much help either even though she wants to help.

I had a camera I was going to mount to the bumper just for backing up but the field of view wasnt enough for what I wanted so I gave it back to my brother.

I also got a chuckle out of the some of the comments as well

It must be me but never once have someone offer to direct me in. Guess I was the entertainment for the day.

Being new at this stuff and especially going at it solo I would had welcome a few good do-ers. Now I think I would be a little more picky....does this mean I'm getting better at this?
