    OH the advantages of a short wheel based tractor.
    I thought for sure he had gotten the rubbish bins but He had a good memory recall of how he got into the parking area in the first place.
    backing out is never the exact same procedure in reverse but if you watch your trailer wheels going in and you have a good concept of angular distance a driver not a steering wheel holder can usually get them selves out providing people are cooperative. I figure since there was no one trying to screw him up by attempting to direct him that after the first few cars were allowed to pass another car noticed what was happening and stalled traffic to the left further back.
