I haven't driven a trailer in about two years. The ponies and I just haven't had anywhere to go. And I have actually never hauled with Jorge since I just got him last year. So I was feeling a little apprehensive about the drive. I was hauling Sally the Sundowner to the trailer place because she was a trade-in.
|First and last time Sally and Jorge worked together.|
|Frida and Jorge getting to know each other!|
I have to pull out into the road and back in to park it properly and unhook. I didn't want to do that while the roads were busy. I live on the corner of two state roads, so it can be a little hairy.
Fortunately, Sunday morning was quiet, and I got Frida turned around and unhooked all easy peasy. But this is where my clumsiness comes in... I hopped out of Jorge to see how much further I could go back and I landed in a rut and turned my ankle. Thus, I very successfully turned and backed my new giant (in my eyes anyway) trailer up with no issues, and then manage to hurt myself getting out of the truck. Sheesh. Fortunately, ankle isn't too bad, and is almost back to normal already.
|Parked and unhooked safe and sound. Yes that car was there the whole time, and NO I didn't hit it!|
