Engine block coolant drain plug....

I was flushing my coolant system today and was try to get to the engine block coolant drain plug and had a heck of a time! I got to it, but had no room whatsoever to get it off! The Taco was on jack stands and i was going underneath to get to it. Is there any other way, or do you have to be super flexible to get to it?

.....I just unscrew the one under the radiator, let it drain into a big-ass-bucket....then run the garden hose in the radiator, turn you heater on and let your engine run for about 15 mintues, then re-fill with coolant mix..
