Driving Skill

I'm sure most are like me and consider themselves quite adroit at handling a big rig whether it is a MH or towed. But this guy could teach a lot of us the art of turning around in a tight place.

Logger turning big rig with trailer.

Clearly both the hitch and the trailer were designed for this, but... wow!

That's good, but can he clear the toll booths on the Sam Houston Expressway?

I'm not sure I would be out on that cliff in my car.

A few miles from our house is an Anheuser Busch plant. One of the so-called "truck routes" has the semis make a sharp right-hand turn at a narrow intersection with an oncoming left-turn lane at that right turn where the stop line is way forward of where it should be to allow semis to make that turn easily. There's also a metal pole on that right corner with the wiring to the intersection stop-light. I've always been amazed the regular route AB semi-truck drivers make that turn, easily threadding between the curb, pole & oncoming left-turn traffic lane without hitting anything or riding up on the curb. And they don't swing wide to make that turn either. I've watched other semi drivers jump that curb, graze the pole or make the left-turners back up, but not the AB semis.

Wish I could say the same for me.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

In my experience that's a moot point anyway. Most ignore the line, or have no clue as to why anyone would have 'wasted' the paint to create it.
