    I went Saturday morning too, I thought 10am would be early enough there'd be no one around! It was way better to feel out my car with only a dozen other cars.. Sunday looked crazy!

    I saw some folks auguring the ice on Saturday and get almost the full auger flight into the ice before water came up.. that's gotta be pretty solid.

    I've parked a drilling rig weighing over 90 tons on ice about 18" thick. I don't think Ghost lake is much of a worry with ice over three feet thick.

    I'd like to drive on that lake again. In the past, I took the SASC winter driving class, on the lake. So much fun.

    Looks to me like he's in the middle of clapping - trying to pose for a "hands off the wheel" pic.

    You should take a performance driving school to learn how to keep your hands near the wheel. Maybe shuffle-steering?

    If you can’t drift using only your knee, are you really Canadian?

    I thought it was the discomfort from holding the wheel of a falsely labelled M vehicle.

    You're right. I can't recall, but I was mainly trying to hot-dog around the course and everything was pretty loose.

    You’re for sure not flailing enough if you’re not turning on signals or wipers

    At least back in the day, when posers did it they didn't face the online scrutiny like today.
