    Default Trailer backing 101

    Not sure if this has made the rounds yet but I thought it was pretty good.

    This one shows the importance of a good alignment on a trailer.

    Not the same kind of fun as the others but Fords pro trailer assist looks pretty cool.

    Thats no fun. One of the best things about going to the lake is watching people trying to back their boat down the ramp.

    It's like going to Pismo Dunes on the 4th of July and setting up camp on the closest safe spot to the Oceano ramp.. It's amazing how many people will setup their camp on sand that was obviously wet at the last high tide..

    Oh no.. Don't get me started on boat ramps...lmao! One year at Nacimiento. We brought our beach chairs and score cards. We judge everyone from 1 to 10. Less then a Minute (yes it can be done) You get cheered! At 5 Minute mark.. Heckling started. If you stopped on the ramp for anything other then a mechanical. Like loading, unloading or (god help you) wiping down the boat. You get Boo'd and most likely things like water bottles (hopefully empty-ish) chucked in your direction, if you didn't move. Of course, the severity of said encouragement /punishments was depending on how long the line was on the ramp.

    The rangers had a love hate relationship with us...lol
