Talking we CAN tow it! AND back it up!

I am so excited! Returned a little while ago from my first rally - NEU's ChillyMan2 - and it was SO much fun. Great bunch of folks

I learned so much from so many generous people, and because of this was able to back all the way up my long, curvy, uphill driveway ALL by myself, no spotter, when I returned home today!!!

Believe me, if I can do it ANYONE can! Lots of little corrections, short movements, and jumping out to check out the situation often. Patience wins here, and it really works! Woohoo!

I feel SO much more confident now, though I still have lots to learn. That is what keeps life interesting, right?

Happy Cat

Good on ya' Cat! Now you know you can do it. Regular campground spaces will be easy now that you navigated that drive. I don't think I'd want to try that! Also glad you enjoyed the rally. Karma to ya!

AS they say " you've come a long way baby" . The step from 0 to 1 is so much greater than from 1 to 2 . Good for you.
