the 45 degrees and all that finally made sense to me! i was able to offset right and offset left during a test, str8 line backing and i messed up on the parallel parking. i turned the wheel the wrong way at the end! i only had like 3 hours sleep the night before, i was so tired ! my knee was trembling by the time i took the parking test! the examiner said i had it in the box almost! but i steered the wrong way at the end! :( but now i will pass next time for sure! i can't double clutch yet but i am rather good a doing the

puerto rican triple clutch! lol

i am sure i will get the rhythm down!

the more i get into this course the more i respect what you guys do!

every one of you are very special!

even my sock puppy "espy" is amazed at what you guys do all day long!

yeah at 56 i am having fun with a sock puppet!

the instructor says it's good to joke around, we need to break the stress and lighten up!

so out comes my sock puppet! lol

by the way my facebook is "victor perez"

remember what "espy" the sock puppet says

be happy or be very well medicated!

:D

Double Clutch:

To engage and then disengage the clutch twice for every gear change.

When double clutching you will push in the clutch, take the gearshift out of gear, release the clutch, press the clutch in again, shift the gearshift into the next gear, then release the clutch.

This is done on standard transmissions which do not have synchronizers in them, like those found in almost all Class A trucks.

Learning new skills does not come as easy as it did when we were 20 does it? Keep up the hard work and it will all pay off.
