Somehow it seems to have showed up a month early and then been taken away again, there was a lull sitting at the end of our driveway for a week a while back... but they hadn't actually ordered it yet, it's like the company listened to what they initially said and got the dates wrong, and ignored the actual order.
Anyway, we don't really have space to turn an 18 wheeler around, but Bill was hanging around to help get anyone unstuck who got stuck. So Bill came up with a plan to pull the trailer around sideways with his logger, a trick apparently he did a lot in the past when logging. The driver thought he might pull it off in our turnaround past the house, but he did it by driving down past the turnaround to the unimproved road where we hadn't put any rock down, so he couldn't back up. Bill had set up to pull the trailer down so had to drive the skidder through around and pull him back up, then he swung his trailer around.
Later that day the next truck arrived. His trailer was longer but his truck was shorter, he only barely made it in without losing his trailer off the edge of our road. I explained to him what had happened with the previous driver and he had a different idea about how to turn around, he had me knock over a bunch of stuff and flatten out what I could with the tractor to give him a bit more space, and actually pulled the turn off. It was pretty impressive to watch, I don't think anyone thought he'd actually do it.
