{DISCLAIMER: In order to make Tanner's accident easily understood to the audience, Tanner has used the description of "backing up" to explain his accident. Due to legal issues and the complicated details of the actual event described in this podcast "backing up" is a term used for timing consideration by the editors of Rocket Motivation.}
