    new to teh forum...wondering if anyone can give me any info on the following
    were getting read to build a circle driveway into a lot with 245 ft road frontage. is there a method for determing how deep we will need to go into the lot so we can drive into it from either direction and make the turn without too much difficulty.
    hope the question is understandable.

    A friend (not spouse), a big parking lot, a Sunday morning, a ball of string, a steel tape, some orange cones and a lot of chalk.

    Drive it around in a circle. When you feel comfortable, have your friend start making chalk marks. Then measure and record your marks.

    You'll be surprised how much you learn before you go putting anything down on paper.

    Plan ahead. You may someday upgrade to long bed and a longer 5'er.
