Oh My God..... I parked the Trailer!!!

Today we drove to Seward which is about 100 miles south of Anchorage. A lovely drive even in the rain. We checked out a couple of campgrounds on the way into town and rejected them due to parking lot settings and decided to take a look at the town campground. Ed and Colin parked the trailers at the side of the road and walked in. They decided that this campground was much better and radioed us on the walkie-talkies to bring the trailers in. I watched in amazement while Margaret drove her trailer into the campground. Ed was standing at the side of the road waving me in, so I got in the drivers side, adjusted the seat and put the truck into drive. I really thought that once I was in the campground he would ask me to get out of the truck and he would park it. Was I ever wrong! He just started giving me directions. It took a couple of tries to get the correct terminology (anyone who knows me well knows I get left and right confused). Since the steering wheel is circular, clockwise and counter clockwise worked for me. Anyway, I managed (with directions from Ed and encouragement from Zaph) to park the trailer. Next I got to set the front jacks, unlock the hitch pin, and unhitched the trailer. Unlocking the hitch pin was fun — I’m too short to reach it so I had to climb into the truck box and wiggle my way around the trailer till I could reach it. Next time I think I’ll just get my step stool out of the trailer! After all the hard work of parking and unhitching the trailers Margaret and I decided that we needed to be taken out for dinner. A drive around town resulted in the sighting of a pair of bald eagles sitting at the top of a spruce tree.

I did it, I did it, I did it!!!

Please, oh Please.... Can I have some??
