In a thread a week or so ago there was talk of if a toy truck would help a noobie understand how a truck reacts to turns... especially when backing. The mor I thought about it, the better the idea sounded. I couldnt resist. I ordered one of these:

I actually play a game called euro truck simulator 2. I have a wheel and pedals. It helps me with backing.

It all helps, I used to play parking simulators on my phone while I waited 4 hours to get in truck again. Everyone thought I drove for years. I said nope, I just don't waste time with bs complaining how much the school sucks. Make the most of it.

At night if come home and go over my mistakes with a toy truck and decide what I would do differently. It clicked fast like this. I also have euro truck! Go get er done!

HuntinDoug, please forgive me for interupting your thread, but I have been curious about something, and wanted to ask you about it ever since you joined our forum. One of my closest friends is also a Luthier, and I know that he is a member of a Luthier's Guild, and active on some Luthier forums. He builds acoustic guitars, but I was just curious if you may have ever met him or heard of him. His name is Steve Kinnaird and he lives in my hometown of Nacogdoches, TX. Ever heard of him?

I don't know Steve... But, there's not many of us out there, so it's not uncommon for us to know each other. I was a member of a luthier forum for a couple years. I build mainly electric guitars. Kind of a different animal altogether than an acoustic. Steve is probably on an acoustic forum if I had to guess.
