A sand shoe is the flat plate on the bottom of the landing gear.

It will take a little time but you will learn to guage where you are to do it right. To do the blind side just do it the other way. There are tricks like this to doing the off-set too.

ops: This is why I don't go teach on the morning of my last day at my regular job. Good catch!!!

I think you have your mirrors backwards?

Ah, OK. The rest of it sounds right to me. Just wasn't sure of the mirror thing without jumping in the truck. You explained it well Ridge IMO.
