Ok, this is Pepsi at 400 6th St. SE in Cedar Rapids. The purple arrow points to the docks.

This place is such fun lol. How would you approach this?

That's a good one but I'll let newer drivers take a stab at it first.... Hurry up people... I love these things

I'm wanting to say I'd just back in off of 5th Ave... even though it's blindside you're not having to try squeezing the truck in anywhere.

Yep.. you really have no other choice as 5th Ave is a one way.

Back in blind side from 5th Ave. Get in far enough to pull forward and straight beck. This would make me nuts.

It would make me see if there was a yard jockey for $10. If so, I'd drop the trailer, then bobtail over to that Habitat for Humanity Re-Store for some


"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.
