Wow, well done!! How long has she been practicing that trail? I wish I'd been that good of a driver at 16, let alone 9!

The first time I drove any sort of vehicle was in the CA desert when I was 15, in my mom's 4Runner. Unfortunately, I proved to be good at stalling it (blame the clutch, which was the original and had over 250,000 miles on it at that time :) ). But it certainly made learning to drive way more interesting than just going in circles around a parking lot!

Well first day driving my truck and about the 4th time doing the trail. First two were with me copilot, then by herself after that. I had it in double 2.28's low and she ran in 2nd gear. There is one spot where the mirrors will fold in if it's not hit perfect. Theory was she was going to hurt in any worse than I ever had.

I'm definitely impressed! I very much doubt I could have done that well at age 9 on the fourth try.

The only problem is that she might have enjoyed it so much that she'll ask to buy that truck from you when she's old enough. :)

She did ask about that already, go figure.
