I'm sure I'll find myself there too! It's just fate isn't it!?

I'm a total freak about google earthing anyplace I plan to go, like to the point of being OCD about it. I drove my wife nuts in our 40' bus over it

But ya know.. it's our responsibility as RV'ers right? To be aware of what's happening, AND what's about to happen?

Experience?

My thoughts about this are: Very little experience in pulling a trailer, possibly too many beers, maybe not enough planning ahead.

I actually can relate, but that is a story for another time. Not going to criticize or make wise cracks. It could happen to anyone.

Hello plasma 800:

My parents had a similar experience back in the 1950's. They had purchased a new 29' Terry trailer and were on their first and only long trip to Yellowstone Natl. Park. Somehow they managed to get onto a dead-end street. They unhitched the trailer from the tow vehicle. The residents in the nearby homes came out and helped them to push and shove the trailer around by hand. Dad re-hitched and after thanking everyone for their help, they continued on their journey very embarrassed by their experience.

Dad claimed there were no signs indicating that street was a dead-end.
