Post your thoughts on snow and mud

some people here in cleveland didn't agree with me doing donuts at a playground one night, it was muddy and fun as hell.

Well, I'm 18 (which doesn't mean a thing ), but I'm with you... I love doing them, but only when the weather's bad (mud and light snow). And I don't do them around parked cars or in busy areas... but I've been chased away numerous times by people who are so mad you'd think I'd kidnapped their child or something...

I'm 29 and I still do it. After I turned 16 and got my licence, myself and a friend used to go to a local industrial park late at night after a good snowfall and practice our winter driver skills. We set up a mini circuit and we would time eachother through it. This was back in the days when rear wheel drive imports were still on the road. I had a '78 Toyota Corona. Nothing special, but I came to love and respect rwd cars in the snow. For the past 10 years, I've been driving fwd cars and I've never realy enjoyed driving them in the snow. Now that I have an AWD Subaru, I've been so looking forward to winter so I can get back to having fun on snowy winter nights.

hell yeah, i think i need friends like you guys, the snow here is great, two inches here in an hour and a half...fun to me.
Now that my 6yr setting kicks in i still am a responsible person, i only do it in playgrounds at late night and in the industrial parking lots....no cars, kids or anybody, not even the cops...way to fun when you have a subaru...

Hehe, I was just kickin up some deep mud this weekend. I had a blast, but I had to drive straight to the car wash because my tires were sooo off balance. One thing I love about this car, when it has mud splashed on the body, it looks awesome!

oh yeah, and for everyone elses info, the original topic was donuts on grass @ schools n stuff, and tearing up the property... not about whether playing in the mud + snow is fun.

Sorry to be suck a jacka$$, but I'm getting sick of the debate...

I live in Mentor, we have to hook up sometime. I know some great places to get our cars muddy. Have you checked out the CEI trails? I went through water that went over my hood, people couldn't tell what color my car was. I have way too much fun in the snow and mudd and gravel and dirt and........

yea uh huh..your mature chris.

the topic died yesterday on egroups.

so you have the be the "mature" one and attempt to make the cleveland area owners look like idiots when we try to look at it from a mature staindpoint.

The "point" we were attempting to make to you vandalizim(?sp?) is wrong...it's not cool...maybe my one comment or many comments i made to you didn't get through your thick head.

And yea I like to go out and play in the mud....but I don't sit here and brag about it to everyone and act like i'm all cool.

Like I said before.

Grow Up.

YEAH!! I love doing that stuff, and I have to hold myself back from acting like a kid(normally the gf can help that )
this week....I wanted to get my car dirty....so I pulled into an area that I know has a large muddy puddle...but when I pulled up it was a large LAKE! (ok it wasnt a lake, but it was a big ass puddle..>VERY BIG) So I sat there, thinking how stupid it would be for me to go through it......then I backed up a bit....and Slamed on the gas!!! Went right into the puddle, and as soon as I made it out, the car stalled. AHHAHAH I dont care...it was crazy fun! I did not do any damage, there was just alot of steam comming from the hood scoop(its open). Car started back up, and I drove home..pretty happy
Keith
I dont even want to talk about the fun with snow..I dont want to jynx myself and not get any. LEts just say 50 foot power drifts into snow banks!! YEAH!! ( try that with the windows open and a passanger..they dont like it for some reason )

Edit :do I always type this bad?

Chris,

Let's not take this out of context now... You were talking about going to playgrounds and ripping them up like all you were into was destroying the place. Hell yeah screwing around in parking lots and stuff is great fun, but ruining property is another story, the one you were originally talking about btw. If you're looking for friends that condone what you were talking about originally, well look elsewhere buddy. This isn't a flame, I'm just setting the record straight on the opinion of "some people here in cleveland".

Later,

Chuck b.

I thought he was talking about a parking lot of a play ground, not the actual play ground. Not to smart, lets try to have a little more respect for other people and property.

guys, come on it's mud and grass, i could see you guys yelling at me if it was fresh grass and new grass or even stuff with nice flowers that the PTO put in, but it is an empty field that could fit a football field in it, the grass was never cut, i think maybe twice the whole year cause the city got on there backs. They have a parking lot that is fun and thier playground isn't close to the field. it is there playground but they play football in it, now they can play mud football...haha Have fun and don't speed!
Also make sure you guys do lots of donuts and leave your mark,,,,lol
