Icon10 Anyone having as much fun as me in the snow?

Most of you guys are lifted. ha. i stick to parking lots, well i dont stick to **** really when its rainy or whatever you guys know what i mean. me and a buddy of mine went to this big parking lot away from the cops and stuff, it was beautiful. we had to have been the first people there, and we drift the whole lot when a salt truck came. Of course, we're like wtf, we hate party poopers. This salt truck drifts around me and my friend, and then does donuts right in front of us while flashing his brights. when i say salt truck i dont mean a dodge ram, i mean a big *** dually. haha. greatest moment of my life guys. Id like to see some videos or pictures of this winter of you guys, maybe some stories like mine? I searched for recent winter stuff and couldnt find any. anyways, heres my video. sorry i couldnt get the salt truck pulling gymkhana in my face guys....lol.

oh yeah. forgot to mention, a chevy 1500 came a little later, and got stuck. i never got stuck so i laughed. I dont like chevy trucks at all. I drifted a perfect circle around him while he spun tires looking for traction. lol

Nothing like playing in the snow and it does have a practical use. The better you get at drifting your truck in an empty parking lot, the better equipped you will be to handle an emergency situation on the road.

Just watch out for stuff hidden in the snow. I ripped the exhaust off my old Audi in 12-15" of snow. There was a cinder block hidden under a drift of snow.

Yea I agree, As soon as I got my first truck I went out driving in the first snow storm we had. It saved me *** more than once down the road so every chance I get I get to practice more, why not its worth burning a tank of fuel on

Man I haven't seen a single other person around here play in the snow. The people here must absolutely hate it. lol
I actually haven't been out in the F150 much this week, been playing in the wife's subaru. AWD, manual trans, turbo and limited slip make a freaking fun car in the snow. I have found a few parking lots with no salt, no plows and nobody around. I have been teaching my wife how to deal with AWD in the snow. Everyone else here just creeps along the road at 20mph, scared to death. It is pathetic!

Oh you know Ive been playin in the snow!

Got a vid of me and my buddy in his 96 ranger playing but my camera crapped out so no way to upload it.

Theres a big church parking lot literally like 75ft from my front door and every night weve gotten fresh snow this week there has been a dakota and an s-10 trying to play but neither of them can manage a donut. They can however slide 180 and lose control LOL

My brother in law (my neighbor) in his mustang and myself in my F150 have been waiting for them to come back again so we can jump in our vehicles and show them up ha ha.

I WANTED to play in the snow this year....but we only got about 1/2". That sucked. Oh yeah..that and my mom and dad were putting up a fuss about me playing in the snow. Cause everyone knows....its DANGEROUS!! :D Technically, it is. But hey, the fun out ways the danger. (the only reason they thought it was dangerous was because I would of had to drive about 10 minutes in snow to get there)
