Magnetic hill: the Optical illusion that baffled us all.

Hello, Will again. Today is day V(5) of our trip. Today we went to a hill called magnetic hill. It got its name because your car rolls uphill. I might comment later explaining it.
Supposedly its a big optical illusion. We thought you had to do something crazy to get it to work. Its simple. The steps are:1) drive though the valley. 2) do a U turn. 3) drive to the bottom of the valley. 4)put your car in Neutral. 5)take your foot off the brake. You roll!
Totally crazy. Against all my scientific knowledge (which is higher than normal because my mothers a mathematician and my parents are all geniuses).
