The Showdown

So that "tomorrow post" I referred to in my last post was actually code for "next week". I'm sure you've all probably figured out by now that I'm not an every day kind of blogger. :)

Anyways, after our pretty drive around campus last Saturday morning, Ryan and I drove by an empty parking lot that NO ONE had driven on. It was a wide open expanse covered by untouched snow and it was beckoning to Ryan and his beloved SUV. So of course, as soon as Ryan saw it, he looked at me with a grin on his face and said "that parking lot looks way too clean" and turned in.


So we played around a bit and remedied that "clean snow" situation.

We did a few donuts and slid all across the lot...

...slightly left our mark.




Part of the 6-inch snow shelf dislodged itself in the process.  Just goes to show how deep the snow really was...

It was so fun...too bad Matt missed out!

But then...just as we were turning out of the lot to head home, lo and behold, guess who just happened to drive by...  The Three Amigos!  And they said "Hey, what are you guys up to?  That looks like fun".

...and into the parking lot they turned...



And the showdown between the SUV's began.

Introducing The "Hoe":

And Team F-150:














Gentleman, start your engines...


First up, the "Hoe" demonstrates a perfect donut...

Sliding to a stop, he shows the amateurs how it's done.

Up next, Team F-150 assesses the situation and strategizes their plan of entry for donut #1.






On your mark, get set, go!

The driver of the F-150 enters his donut at a perfect angle.


narrowly missing a rock, he kicks up a spray of snow...













...and some mud.












and completes his donut with the skill of an expert.














but wait! he isn't stopping...






he keeps going...

and adds a figure 8 to the end of his run.

The competition is too close to call.  And the lone judge (me) gives them each a perfect 10.
and after both vehicles left their marks and we all felt better about the snow not looking so clean anymore...we all drove to breakfast.
