I can remember when I was 14 in Saskatchewan and we would go to town, my uncle drove part way and he would straddle the ruts then he would let me drive and I would go 50 feet and slip into the ruts and stay there all the way to town, I didn't have to steer.

It'd suck to forget something and have to turn around.

Right now, the ruts in the ice on the streets is like this in places. I have
to go to an intersection where the ruts break up to get out of them.

We had ruts in four inches of ice - horse trailer tracks wider than the ruts, made it very "interesting" - fortunately we got a foot of snow that filled in the ruts ! :- )

I have heard that there used to be a sign on the Alaskan Highway that said, "Choose your ruts carefully. You will be in them for a long time!" Since then it has become a metaphor for "life."

When I see Dave Wells photo, it make me think when I was a teenager I was visiting my Uncle and his family in KCMo
O and my late cousin went out and was dinking around Kc and he would get in the trolley track's and they would do the steering. when he wanted to make a turn he would steer out and he would again steer out and if there was a track there he would drop in the tracks and go on. Now this was long after T days, and it was a 46 or 47 FORD coupe. All our Family were For People and to this day I am to the bone marrow FFFFOOORRRRDDDD!

No problem Don. I don't know if I've seen this one before or not but it certainly looks like it would be a well known photo. Of course it's great for new people here and guys like me who can't remember anything. :-)

Great photo but I wouldn't want to drive my T or A through it. Tim
