Backing up is hard to do

...if you've never done it before, that is.  There is definitely a bit of a learning curve to backing up a teardrop trailer.  And when we took Billy on his shakedown cruise last month, we did so with minimal backing, and the help of an experienced campground host to guide us into our back-in site. So, over the past 2 days, we have put in about 5 hours(!) at the dusty dirt lot of a local park, practicing our backing skills.  Well, so far Jerry is doing all the driving.  It's all I can manage just to work the darn walkie-talkie, trying to give him directions when I'm not even sure what he should be doing!


In a couple weeks, we will take Billy on a real trip.
