Came up to Tauranga yesterday, was a great drive. Only problem was that I was silly enough to stop the car on the side of the desert road with the two front wheels deep in snow. Now, I drive a front wheel drive car, so after I stopped, I immediately thought ‘how the hell am I going to get out, its snow dammit, not gravel’. Well, let me tell you, it wasn’t easy. After almost burning up my clutch (forgot to take the handbrake off – now that is stupid) and destroying the car (full rpm in reverse) I managed to rock the car back and forth to get it back onto the road.
Funny thing is many cars went past, but no-one helped out. That’s just sad. I would help someone if they were stuck in the snow. It’s just a nice thing to do. Shame on everyone who drove past!
Anyway, I filmed the mountain, and ill see what I can do about putting a clip up here when I get back home.
