Amen to that. (Except I spell maneuver differently down here.
) I remember at first turning my head to look back--I could see over my pop-up--and having my hands at the top of the wheel. What a bunch of mental gymnastics that was...especially if someone was saying, "Turn the wheel the other way. No, the OTHER way." Having confidence in yourself and your rear view mirrors is the ticket.
