  11. I appreciate so much the way Bob taught me how to back-in my rig on the last campout at Skinner Lake. I have known Bob for so many years but he just seemed to \’take me under his wing\’ on this campout. He was so encouraging and positive in teaching me, for my first time, how to BACK-IN instead of DRIVE THRU park my rig. He spent the rest of the evening giving me pointers and teaching me little things that he has learned over all the years of camping.
