I left work early today due to the snow. Driving about 10-15 mph on the airfield road around a curve, my rear just went to the right and I was sliding sideways down the incline. All I saw was the wood poles that are the guard rails for the curve, came inches from hitting them. With my police driving skills I was able to recover without incident:teethmast . Then again on another road, samething, truck slid again, but I was able to recove due to my expert skills:rolleyes:

How did you get sideways at 10 mph? Was it a downhill grade?

I wasn't trying to make a joke, I guess I read your post too fast; you did say you were on an incline. I'm glad you were o.k.

I got my Titan sideways too. That's me about half way through the video getting sideways. Lots of fun!!

I own a house in SC, but I was in the Washington DC area (N.VA) which I grew up. I hit ice at the curve. I love driving in the snow, been doing it all my life and never crashed yet.

EC, Trying to turn that truck into The Big Red Doorstop? :rofl:

Good thing there's no ice under your wheels when you're flying, huh? That could be trouble! :lol:

I didnt like the Impala, the ones we had had front end issues, brakes and no power. My 05 Crownvic was nice, but its brakes only lasted 10k. I wasnt even going fast just about 10-15 mph on a downhill coasting. I did my police drivers training at the FBI Academy which was 2 weeks long.

I was just reminicsing (sp) when I slid my 77 Nova on ice, around a right hand turn and uphill 2 car lengths, at nothing more than 10 MPH. It was a spooky, but fun ride. Many many years ago...

Ice scary, snow holds you in place sometimes. imo.

Same thing happened to my wife, light snow on the road, going 10-15 mph in a curve, hit the gas. She looses the back end and over the hill she goes. She side swiped a pine shrub. It was about 6' round and 12' tall. The truck was about 2 inches from the trunk. Went from headlight to taillight, nice new stripes down the side. Insurance said $3000.00 in damage. Was a sad day. Oh yea, everyone was ok, except for my feelings. She hadn't drove the truck forever and the one day she does she tears the whole side out. Could have been worse. I wish she had police like driving skills!!!!
