Marked you off of my list.

Hi, cclarkego; Well I guess I will have to mark you off of my waiting list of Airstream owners coming to Lakewood for parking lessons. Good job and another fine story.

Carol,
Thank you very much for your story. And congrats on your almost perfect backing, an inch is an inch after all, of course that would only be half of an inch from being centered. Can you come to Oregon and give me backing lessons? Again, congrats!

That's it! My newest idea on gainful employment....

I drive all over the US with my trailer and teach the new kids on the Airstream block how to back their trailers up. For an additional fee I will also teach a course in beginner's trailer ownership, "Mistakes You Should Not Make," of which I am quite certain I am well versed in.

I sure could use the back up classes! We have free H2O and electricity! Oh and a portable dump tank. I think someone could make a funny video of all the people trhying to back up with help from their fiends or spouses.

Carol, thanks for all the great stories (bear, mice, backing up). I'm very impressed by your reverse driving skills. Keep travelling to add more stories to entertain us all! My Chessie had a near miss with a skunk last night. Not nearly as exciting as your bear experience....but had the skunk got him, we could have had quite the tale! What would one do if the dog were sprayed while camping? We thought we'd have to strap him to the roof of the TV!

Lisa

P.S. You DO deserve an extra rivet!

Carol,

Reminds me of something my Grandfather told me almost 40 years ago. After I had backed the log truck in next to the shop with the trailer down, including the 90 degree backing turn needed, I was sooo proud. He just said "Hell boy, I've backed up furthur than you have been away from home". Problem was, he was correct!

He was indeed a good backing instructor though.
