Hookin up my first trailer!
 
I'm excited. (:
It's only a canoe and trailer (my bed is wayy too short, 6' bed with a toolbox), so I don't have to worry about killing a new horse trailer or a horse, but it's a first step! :D

I'm pretty sure I'll be able to manage it just fine because I already make turns like I have a trailer attached, haha. But if I do hit a curb or three at least I won't be jerking a horse around :p

I'll put a picture up when I get everything all hooked up (as long as we can find the hitch.. >.> ) because I'll just be too proud. And a picture so we know I made it down to the river xD

I love being able to haul a trailer by myself. Granted my dad is very over protective so he hasn't really let me go to many places hauling by my self. I will say to that I have been driving once since I got my permit and even when my mom is with me I always drive. My trainer always comments on how over cautious I am about hitting things, but I know that one time I don't pay attention and think I have enough room that I will hit something which would end the driving the horse trailer by my self. ha So I guess what I mean to say is just be really aware of everything.

Yeah..Trailer has ended up as a no go. :/
Some old druggy at the gas station jerked his car forward as I was passing him and my tire hit his bumper and he tried to blame me. I'm livid and out $20 just to shut him up. None of the cops in my town believe anything anyone under 30 says, so I just left it at that. I can't wait to move to where the police aren't all corrupted.

So, I'm in no mood to borrow someone else's trailer and drive anywhere..sadly enough. I swear I'm just a magnet for bad drivers and *******s :/ They make me look bad because I can only avoid things so much.
