    What lane did he start the u-turn from? Maybe @expedite_it or @LtlAnonymous can draw us up a diagram and we can get another thread started on this. Lol!

    He started his turn in the left lane.
    Four lanes and two shoulders is doable.
    I guess no one ever told him STAY ON THE PAVEMENT!!!

    Silly novice. I have completed U turns on 2 lane roads. It's all about the position of the trailer.

    He had to have started that uturn from the left lane to go that far up the hill on the other side of the road

    I'm guessing he tried doing this in the early morning, maybe around 1AM-4AM when nobody was on the road and probably didn't see how far in the grass he was or that there was a ditch there. Being loaded that heavy and driving on grass is always a bad idea. This guy is the reason MEGA's will automatically fire you if they see that you tried to do any U-turn. Just drive the 10~20 miles to get turned around.

    yeah, I don't know why he didn't start by getting on the shoulder first. That would've gave him an extra 3 lanes(2 lanes + left turning lane) to make that u-turn, especially if he did this at night when nobody was on the road.
