    About a ten acre bare ice patch on the river. That was a good time. 36” thick ice and a datsun b210. We were out of control for hours.
    My buddy’s dad built a snowmobile oval race track on the ice,that winter i had a 69 corolla. That was fun too.
    Driving to/from the track would only go at idle, with me pushing.
    Climb in and it would break through the hard crust and spin out. Once i made it to hard pack it was good to drive.

    Have had people pass me on the highway,slide and lose it. One i remember reading his licence plate from my driver side window,as he completed his spin and went in backwards.

    Stay there, dumbass.the world is safer with you stuck in a snowbank...

      Snow is fun to drive in...as long as the rest of the inexperienced idiots stay home.

        Where do you think drifting was invented?
        Blasting through snowdrifts,foot to floor and when window clears,you are full on sideways fighting to keep from getting stuck.

          Yessir! The chance to drive flat out in snow was always some of the best times of my youth!

          Back then, people knew how to drive in it or stay out of the way. I used to tear-ass around the 1.5 mile loop of our neighborhood in 2 feet of snow with drifts twice as big at every chance I got.

          What was the worst that could happen? I was was dressed for the weather and was perfectly willing to walk home if I got stuck.

          But I never had to...:D

          Always prepared for the harsh conditions,last yeat i got a pair of NAT’s boots. They weigh nothing, and they are like mini ovens for your feet. Never had such warm boots.

          I got caught walking too many times in crappy weather as a kid,i know better.

          I completely get that.

          When I was a kid in Boy Scouts during the annual Freeze-out, I learned how NOT to camp in 5* weather with over a foot of snow on the ground.

          Damn near froze my ass off, chowing on snickers bars all night to just maintain enough energy to keep from freezing to death. I was never so cold and miserable in my life. It took me 2 days just to feel warm again once I was home.

          I am all about the gear now and triple redundancy on supplies and shelter.

          I learned the primary lessons of Boy Scouts well...be prepared.

          That was just one of the experiences I had that year, one of the other most notable was going underwater in a canoe in 45* water, 15 miles into a 25 mile trek,

          I nearly died that day. My Dad who was with me in the canoe also nearly succumbed to the experience. Even when he was in his 70s, he would bring it up as the scariest moment of his life.

          Wow. Scary. We go caught in a november blizzard. My 69 corolla.
          Headed home from town,down the highway,guess the little 4cyl could on ingest so much snow. It got soaked and stalled.
          Had no clue where we were. My roommate got out and started walking. We passed the house.
          Spent the night in the car and trudged home at daybreak. He made it back, tried to come get us with another car and buried it in the driveway.
          Like you mentioned, i never felt so cold. 1984/85 i think.

            What I don't understand is why a flaming ball in the hemisphere is called an Asteroid while a flaming ball in your ass is called a Hemmroid!

                    Got the exhaust bolted back together on my jeep, still sounds a little bit louder so I may have a leak somewhere. But it's a vast improvement then driving home with no manifolds. I'm gonna have to replace the O2 sensors, fucker cut all those wires

                        I called them. It's not really worth the hassle. It's less than 70 bucks total in damages.

                        Chris still say someone scared this person off. Lots of work done to just walk away.
                        Can you do a blast email at work? Someone saw him/her.
