Oh, and beaver ponds up to and over the road. Beaver ponds here tend to have swamp all around them - so ya, the ditch is the swamp. I have no problem backing up generally speaking.
Though I suppose, if I was absolutely stuck, I'd manage to do it. If I REALLY had to.
I think she thought you had trouble backing....
We stayed overnight at DH's cousin's place in Chattanooga on the way to Virginia. They live on a narrow road, and UP a HILL. On top of that, the driveway makes an additional 90 degree turn before it goes UP, and it had rained recently.... I got Tootsie out and walked her up, in case DH and the trailer went sliding back down, and I could barely climb up on foot.
When you get to the top, suddenly it levels out, and you are IN the front yard. And it's wooded. The really fun part was turning the trailer around in the wooded yard. We had the slide-in on the truck, just to increase the degree of difficulty.
