ColTomParker: 26 point turn, just like they taught us in Drivers Ed.

Personally, I would have just backed down.


Well, you could stand him up at the gates of hell, but he wouldn't back down.

Acting like an 18 point turn is some sort of magic, calm down.

When I'm playing Dirt Rally and the car turns around impossibly on a road like that I just admit defeat and hit the restart button.

cryinoutloud: There's nothing there.  He could have pulled up where it flattened out and turned around.  Duh. There's buildings there.  He was just doing it to show off.

Heh. A friend of mine has a small gold claim up in the hills around Darrington somewhere. It's a tailing pile on an abandoned mine that never did really produce much but a little hard work can show enough color to pay for the gas to get up to it so it's a good excuse to go up and fark around in the dirt. It's on a long old trail that is just about as wide as a Jeep. When I had my '72 Blazer, we were headed up there one November, the weekend after Thanksgiving. We came to a point where there was a large tree that had fallen over the trail. There were a couple of feet of snow on the ground, no place to turn around, about 100 foot drop on one side and the cliff on the other. We ended up reversing down the trail, maybe about three miles before we got to a spot that was wide enough for me to do that. It took maybe a 10-point turn to get the truck turned around and I had to lean the LR wheel off the side to get that.

4-spd manual for the win. Can't do that with an automatic. God I miss that truck.

There was probably a bus or transport coming the other way.  I'll bet this wasn't the first time the driver had done something like this.
