I have a slightly different take. That trailer is not a new Cadillac or travel trailer. In a logging operation things get scraped and bent. I could not see any damage. If it had bent the tongue they would probably heat it up with a torch and pull it the other way with the truck to fix it. The repair would take about 15 minutes and cost about $15 dollars. That manuever was an example of extraordinary skill. I am sure that is not the only trick that driver knows. If you needed to hire drivers to haul logs in that environment where would you find them? Not one driver in 500,000 could pull that off.

Bruce, I agree he is a skilled driver but I would like to see that done with the trailer loaded with logs. But I am wondering why he backed down the road a ways then turned around. Ususally in these environments there are turn around points.

It's a dirt logging road. My guess is that was the turn around point!

Regards,
