  4. That is something that was drilled into us when I first worked as a cable installer many years ago. We were required to back into driveways. The theory was you had a clear few of things on first arrival and after you were there working for an hour you had a clear view to leave.

    It's something I still do now. In fact my wife and I both back our cars into the garage.

    That's ok. Somebody ran over my Ric (in the case) a few weeks ago. Good thing Ric makes good cases....

    This one takes me back to 1984. I had pinched pennies to be able to afford a boat anchor of a bass. A Hondo II P-bass copy. My three piece band all drove together to our rehearsal space in the drummers jacked up 4x4. I put my bass in the bed of the truck for the ride home. On the way down a country road a dog ran in front of the truck. The drummer locked it up and we slid nose down into a deep ditch flipping the truck end over end...no seat belts. Miraculously we were all unharmed. We crawled out to survey the wreckage. Dead dog, totaled truck, and no bass to be seen. We walked around the neighboring soybean field until we found it. Not a scratch. The action was about the same as before (awful) so no harm done.
