Playing with my stick

Jeffrey turned 30 on Thursday. As a life milestone, he thought he was ready to give manual transmission driving another go.

We tried this is my Honda Civic several years ago and the parking lot time went well, but on the road? Well, let's just say it's been a few years since I was willing to try this again. The little red car is a bit easier to drive, though a bit diminutive for a 6'4" human, but I thought, we can at least try.

So this morning, I had him read the CarTalk guys' guide to driving stick shift. Then he watched this video here.

Then we hit the church parking lot.

Two hours later? Cruising the Biltmore area of Phoenix.
