MG...you're in good hands in this forum. Tons of great advice. Hang in there. It'll go the way its meant to go and with the hard work you've put in you'll come out on top.

Straight Backing

I agree. Right now i driva a 24ft box truck and drive a local route. Majority of my stops have no lines so i always find something as a marker.sometimes its as simple as the bumpers or tire tracks... fins something as a guide when backing. It helps tremendously!

Yes. Always focus on your reference no matter if it to your left or right. The other day,I had to focus on a truck because there was no lines.
