I'm actually pretty good on ice.
My first car had the smallest tires possible, and was a stick shift with what seemed like an 80 pound clutch, no power steering.
You get good driving on ice in that, you have to. Ha.
Living in Minnesota and driving a manual you do learn very very fast. Although we have been lucky this year with the snow. Out east has had by far more snow then us all year. It's suppose to be around 50 this weekend though haha
I played hockey and we had last names on our jerseys. So what we would do is give each other nicknames so you wouldn't yell your last name on the ice. Other teams would try to yell your last name and get you to pass it to them and cause turnovers.
