Gary, take your time backing. It is not as bad as the 'experts.' make it out to be. You are stressing yourself over nothing. Several weekends ago I went to Evergreen and hope to this weekend again.

Duane, you don't have trouble backing your rig because the horses do all the work!

The seasons are changing. Yesterday morning I was greeted by a loud assembly of spring peepers(frogs) doing guess what....peeping! They were as loud today even with the 21 degree temp. They are cold blooded and can survive temps as low as 8 degrees. They peep to be heard by a potential mate so as you can imagine it's quite competitive.

Also yesterday when daylight arrived I counted over 30 turkey vultures in flight overhead. Today there were well over 50. Those that choose to continue north should make it to Hinkley in time for the celebration. We have seen black vultures around the area most days this winter but they are greatly outnumbered by the recently returned turkey vultures. The easy way to distinguish them is by the color of their head, black head=black vulture and red head=turkey vulture. They like to nest in abandon barns and we have a few around the area. They also like the road killed deer still here.

Wow! And to think all I look for is warmer temperatures.




Today is my personal best for most consecutive days alive.

This week will be warm up here with 60's everyday in the forecast. Torn between camping or cleanning up the yard. Adding some outlets and lighting in the basement today. Ihave to keep reminding myself that its still early March and winter can come back quickly. Randu

I am not stressed per say just anxious. I have a CDL and drove big trucks for quite a few years but it has also been quite a few years since I towed something bigger than our 35' travel trailer and that thing backs so easy it almost feels like cheating.
We cant wait for Evergreen. It is one of our favorite destinations.

Well today we did the deed and signed for our new 5th wheel. I must say I was a bit nervous towing home a 40ft 5th wheel after towing around a travel trailer. The size was intimidating but once underway I found it to be a piece of cake. She drove, turned and stopped just perfectly and backing her up was a breeze as well. We did have a pleasant surprise. I am not sure if it was a screw up or a model change but our unit came with the Lippert leveling system and outside stereo for no extra charge. It was supposed to come with power stab jacks and outside stereo was not even available. I am off to bed. It was a looooong day.
Congrats on the new rig Gary.

Fred, you should work as a naturalist. As always I enjoy your insight.

Coldest day on the 10 day forecast is mid 50's. I can deal with that!
