hi everyone
wow didnt expect this much responce.im not too sure i would like the idea of sitting over the top of the ditch ,looking down (and not falling in )  while the front wheels are still on the laneway,that must  be a wierd feeling!!
i guess i wasnt clear re the mail box (which i just cemmented in this summer) i would be comeing in from the other direction....so when im driveing home i would be makeing a right hand turn into the drineway and the mail bow would be on my left.
gee busted knuckle thats real tempting..just how much money are we talking here  Grin lol lol back it in on the first try ...mmm do i get to keep your 45 footer if you dont make it  Grin ..just kidding..
a friend of mine bought me a set of laneway marker,because they had a hard time backing down my laneway at night in a s.u.v. (i will not mention what sex they were )

Scottie, my bet is that no way are you going to come in from the right and turn into that lane. I seriously doubt if you can even back in, but no way are you going to pull in.

Don't ever bet with a pool shark, or in this case, a bus shark.  I've watched Bryce back up and believe me... he CAN do it.

A lot of difference between pulling in and backing in. That mailbox would definitely, in my opinion, prevent pulling in from the right.

man thats an Idea for Arcadia....Conversion Rodeo

Hmmm, I check into this.  One other thing to remember when turning the bus is that you will be sitting in front of the front wheels. You can actually be sitting "off the road" while your front wheels are still on the road when turning.  Jack

Scottie,

Now that I can see the 3rd angle, NO problem.

yep I say no problem for or aft.

I would stone the radius of the lane a bit more just to give you some wiggle room

Yep. With the new photo, looks like plenty of room if you swing wide into the left lane.

Not a problem if he's like the guy that drives the snow plow down here (keep in mind we only have 1 for KY, TN & MS LOL that they share), after he hit it hard enough the first time it'd be spring B4 the tow truck would attemp to remove it from the trees! LOL!

What's it worth to you if I park this in your driveway for you to take a picture of it sitting there MINUS the load of course???
