    I don't think that guy ever crossed a line in the whole video? My hat's off to him! I'm impressed.
    Snowflake, I've seen guys back doubles into slots and I've seen several guys back up a single with a converter attached. I've tried it a few times on a weekend when no one was around, I never did have much luck doing it. I guess my hat is off to you too. I've been driving about 30 years ticket and accident free but I cannot add backing doubles to my credentials.

    I pulled doubles for a little while, I never even tried to back them up except for about 15 feet or so after I would pull into a spot, I would pull way forward straighten out, and then back- back up. That sounds funny back back up. Anyway you know what I mean.

    Backing a set is not hard after a little practice.....
    We do it a lot when we need to back a loaded set up to an empty....
    Doubles don't off track near as much as a long box, it would not be hard to go through curves like that.
    I'm not fully convinced that the video was recorded in forward motion, and not played in reverse

    I wouldn't be suprised, if he pulled out and didn't shift it would sound the same, and look the same in reverse.
