Ok, here's the story. .
About 5 or 6 years ago, Vicki, her Daughter and I, another couple and their Daughter went to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, The small town we stayed at is 4 or 5 miles from Lake Superior. The average snow fall is 17', we went to snow ski. This trip was in February, with at least 12' of snow on the ground. we stayed in a motel, the temperatures were around -10. After the first day of sking, we all cleaned up to go out to supper. There was a couple of inches of snow in the parking lot which was huge, and only had 8 cars in it.
yours truly thought this was as good as place as any to do a donut. So I did, a perfect 360. Came to a stop at least 40 feet from the road. The Daughter thought it was great. Vicki wasn't so excited, "Why do you always have to do this" her exact words. Bout that time there are flashing lights in front of the truck, whoops. The officer walks up to my truck, ( a crew cab long bed Ford). I roll the window down, and he says, "Don't you think your a little old to be doing donuts" " and your wife agrees, Vic was just shaking her head.
I don't remember what I replied, I was polite. He then says, and he couldn't have been much over 30. " You know you could flip your truck and injure your passengers". Yes officer was my reply. I was like 52 years old. I wanted to tell him, you know what, I have been doing donuts since before you were born. I can handle this. No ticket.
Beautiful country up there in the winter.
