Do NOT use the trailer brake lever to "drift" the trailer through corners!!

Think everyone else got the basics.

"Never" is the best time to try this...seriously?

G-town, Just a little levity. Don't want people getting too bunged up.

One thing to know, plan, adjust.

Another to stress out about the million variables.

Hoping that was the case...

I understand your LOL moment. Others with less experience,...maybe not.

Batteries...

Most of the time my first PTI is conducted in morning darkness. Thus my flashlight must be in good working order. Everyday this week it's been at or near zero degrees f in my neck of the frozen woods. Battery life degrades quickly, 60% faster when it's sub-freezing. Keep a stock of fresh replacements handy.
