What I love are the pull throughs that you have to back out of. Guess we're just too long but too often new spring help has not really learned the park yet and that giant tree and the narrow road does not make an easy exit.


I have also had to back in to pull throughs because of the angle and/or a obstacle in the way preventing you from pulling in straight.

Off the narrow road you had to back between a large boulder and a tree.


What's up with campsite landscapers putting a big boulder on the other side of a huge tree in the entrance of a camping slot?

Sadist sob's, lol!
Mother nature was the landscaper, would have took a VERY large piece of equipment to move, they built the road around it.


I'm sure that in that campground the boulder were put there deliberately as every site has one or two.

And that's because there are thoughtless campers like me who trample on the grounds. I was even given a note by a park ranger for having my parked 4runner off pavement arriving late one evening.

Looks like you both got grounds for divorce, lol.

He, that you don't know how to direct a husband backing the trailer... and you for the above.

But will it be alright if he do the yelling after he finds himself on sticky wicket on your directions?

Lol

And this makes me weep.

My wife directs me by telling me how to turn my steering wheel -- and of course, she doesn't know that with a trailer, it should go the other way.

As a woman, I would suggest there are three types of female responses to helping a man back up the RV:

1. The woman who is tired of being yelled at that she is doing it wrong, so purposely does it wrong to get him to stop asking her to help.

2. The woman who just doesn't want anything to do with any of it in the first place. So will not even bother trying to make an effort at it.

and

3. The woman who will eagerly become a master at it.

Each of those responses is in direct relationship with the three male responses:

1. He has to do everything himself, so no matter how efficient she is, he will complain that she did it wrong so he can do it himself.

2. He doesn't want an interactive experience, but just wants a target he can see in his mirrors (the target may or may not be where he aims the vehicle).

and

3. He realizes she knows better than he does and just listens to her.

Put those together in various combinations and let the hilarity begin. [emoticon]
