Ya the theory is the same. A bumper hitch trailer is probably tge most contrary piece of equipment ever invented to back up.

I hope to get ununemployed soon, too. I would like to stay in the field I have worked in since 1979.

You'd surely lose patience with me before I learned to back one up.

What most people don't know is, the longer the trailer the easier it is to back up. Although in a truck you can't see much which sucks.

You haven't met her... I broke her gun right in front of her. She made a screwdriver and kissed me. So, she's pretty easy going...

I would think long and hard before you mention her nice a$$ to her - - - she will hand yours back to you on a platter!!!
Very, so, professional!

I'm glad - - - I still say if they know you are knowledgeable about safe firearm use and training many women will seek out your company. As long as you are a gentleman good long term friendships came become common.
