Now we don't have to buy a car for me until DH gets back from Boot Camp. I learned to drive his car, which wasn't easy. I still kill it every once in a while, but hey, I'm driving it all by myself now and we saved money. Good thing too because we've got nothing.

I had to learn as a teen to drive a stick. Once I figured it out it was actually fun to drive, but I HATED when you had to stop and pull out on a hill or incline. It's so hard to get that timing down, and then if someone was behind me...oh boy!! look out!!! So good for you it really is an acomplishment.

My parents made me learn to drive on a car that was a stick shift w/ no power steering. They figured if I could drive that, I could drive anything. They were right. Personally, I loved owning a stick shift car, especially in college. So few of my college friends knew how to drive a stick that I almost never had anyone ask to borrow it! It was great!

Congrats to you for learning! It's a great skill to have.
