I did an outing without hubby and took our Tin Hut. My mom, daughter, and my mom's little adoptee. Heading for Blue Lakes and had never been there before even though I live an hour away. Wanted to do some hiking also. Sent my mom and rest on ahead to scout out a spot for the trailer. One short thought, was I should have fired up the walkie talkies. Anyway, I headed on up and went into the camping areas. So I'm hauling this trailer heading up and around these lakes. I don't know the camping grounds and they look very tight. I am not a backer upper at all. I had to stop and ask people if sooner or later I was going to be able to turn around sometime. Assured that eventually I will be able to do just that. Went all the way to the end til 4 wheel drive roads and the last campground was the most promising for a trailer, but I did not see the rest of my party. So I went back to the gate. Did have to put the truck in 4WD once to get up a hill. So I went the other direction and got down in a spot that was a tight turnaround. I think they need a sign that says no trailers beyond this point. YIKES!!!!!!!!!!! So saw no one and then I just sat at the road waiting for the posse. They finally showed up and they found a spot down the road. Good!!!!!!! Cause I don't think I saw anything in the campgrounds that I could handle.
The road they found for me to navigate was tight, real tight. I have a wide body trailer. Tight gate, go slowly between tree on one side and rock on the other. And then had to do a tight turn into our camp choice. Good thing I have just a 22FTer.
Spent 2 nights out in a very pretty area and then had to go back out home. Tight squeeze but had mom check to see if that gate would open wider which it did. So got home and as I was coming into our yard to proceed to the back my husband said "stop stop!!!!!!" He was concerned I was cutting it too close to go around our other truck parked in the yard. Gee!!!!!!!!! no sweat!!!!!!!!!
If only he had any idea where Tin Hut had been the last few days, he would lay an egg!!!!!!!!
