Anyone see the show this past week? There are 4 teams left and they all got outfitted with a (I think) Suburbans each pulling a brand new Jayco Jayflight travel trailer, looked like 30-footers with the living/dining area slideout and the bunk bed floor plans. They traveled through Utah and toYellowstone and saw some really spectacular sights.

It was funny seeing one of the teams teenage daughter pulling that trailer all around the west......none of 'em could back the thing though, and they had to ask a total stranger to back it up for them....he did it with no problem...lol

Anyway, just thought I'd share that...back to your regular scheduled programming? ;D

Ah, city kids... I've been able to back a single axel trailer (or a double for that matter so long as it's a trailer and not a wagon) since I was about 10... But then I had to fill that trailer with what the bull left behind and go empty it and back it in again so it could be refilled.

What I found sad was that one family kept talking about how "ugly" Utah was.....excuse me???? Utah is one of the most beautiful states in the 50. How sad.

Not being experienced towing maybe they had white knuckles and didn't take their eyes off the center line to look either side of the road or they forgot to remove their shades. ;D ;D

"Ugly" has more than one meaning

To us folk here in the great white north "Ugly" means "not beautiful"

However to some folk "Ugly" means "not nice"  or if you like "Mean"

In context:  "I was ugly toward my best frinend"

So perhaps they meant Utah was unfriendly, or that it was unfriendly to them due to the nature of it's roads

In any case... I do have to admit a major source of amusement is folks backing trailers, folks who would have problems backing a Fort Escort into the same site that is

What are those tips... Put your hands on the bottom of the wheel and to go left push left?

Easier to "put brain in reverse" for me

It was the no-class Weaver bunch from Florida and they were definitely refering to Utah as "not beautiful". One of the idiot teenage girls referred to a small mountain as ugly and that it looked like a "pimple". They continued on saying how much they hate the state and how sorry they feel for people who live there. All the while, the show's cameras were showing breathtaking, spectacular views...lol!

I'm from sweet home Alabama and i've never been out west, but I intend to go someday!
