Thanks Big T. That was a hell of a trail to be on. something about the length of trailer comes to mind on making turns. It doesn't automatically follow the way you want it to. Hope a lesson learned.

No they don't. They off track and cut a shorter arc than the tractor does.

Looking at the map, that road looks plenty big enough (207, not the one he got stuck on). I wonder why it's restricted?

Roads can be restricted for several reasons. The obvious reasons are weight limits, low clearances, tight turns etc. A lot of times it may just be they don't want the through traffic.

They are going to let my student finish training. They asked my opinion and I told them that he owned up to his mistakes and understands what he did wrong. So it sounds like they are going to chalk this up to an expensive rookie mistake. They will seek further evaluation from his next mentor.

Im done training until probably the end of January. Im going to head to Oregon for Christmas with my son and then back home in January for daughter's birthday. I don't like taking students that I can commit to finishing.
