I'm still in Montreal. Tonight, on the way home, there was a bit of snow on the roads. A caller in to a local radio station exclaimed: "Everybody's forgotten what to do when it snows!" 30Km later, I pulled into the hotel up in the Laurentians. Snow driving. Three times a week to Stevens Pass sticks with you for car control in snowy, winter conditions. Just like riding a bike. Time will tell if things are so sweet going back DOWN the hill. On a bike or in a car, I have found going uphill safer than going down. After all, going up the hill, you WILL be able to stop. As in skiing, an "oops" can result in a long slide. I just hope those AA pilots don't forget what to do in the snow. Luckily, expectations are higher for commercial airline pilots are higher than we expect from road users.
Subject Matter Mostly it's about local transportation cycling, as it exists in the here and now. It's got a smattering of other gratuitous toy recreation thrown in to keep y'all a little off balance. For those that don't know me, toy recreation means English & Italian cars, aircraft - and downhill skiing.
