Us Canadians know a thing or two about winter driving. We kinda need to, you know, in order to survive up here. When there’s snow or ice on the roads, we know to take it easy, or else we’ll end up in the ditch. When you’re driving in traffic, that’s absolutely what you need to do.
However, snow and ice on the ground gives us unique opportunities that people living in warmer climates don’t enjoy – like the ability to drift your car just about anywhere you go. You know what drifting is – maybe you like to go drifting yourself, or maybe you’ve just accidentally done it while trying to avoid an accident. While police probably wouldn’t take too kindly to you doing it in public, there are tons of people that just go out drifting for fun – because if you know what you’re doing, it’s TONS of fun!
I personally am a fan of drifting, though I certainly don’t do it nearly as much as I did, say, 6 or 7 years ago. Funny how growing up a little bit has that effect on you. That being said, if I ever found myself in a completely empty snow-covered parking lot late at night, I wouldn’t hesitate to reach for the e-brake and do a little sliding around… And hopefully keep it out of the cabbage better than this guy:
Canadians don’t even seem to care what they’re driving when they go drifting… Just look at this guy!
What if you could go drifting in a tank, though? How awesome would that be? For most people, the chance to drive a tank comes only in dreams. For U.S. Marines training in Norway, it’s a daily occurrence. And you know, if you get the chance to drive a tank on ice and snow, you better be doing your best to drift that thing! And they did!
Well, that looks like the coolest job ever… Aside from the, you know, going into battle part.
