Driving at camp

I know times have changed, but how old were you when your Dad or your Pap let you get behind the wheel on the dirt roads at camp.

Re: Driving at camp

I was 8 learning to work the clutch and shift three on the tree in an old 1956 Dodge pickup. I was 13 when I started learning body work on that old truck for when I'd turn 16. Dad sold the truck when the plants closed thanks to imported steel. I never got over that and had 4 trucks like it since.

Re: Driving at camp

i was 9 when i got to drive on the back roads of Surveyor.
we had a old black/red Fiat 4 speed.
i would drive and if we saw a deer,dad would hop out with his old shakesphere recurve bow.
I know now that is not legal but back in 1969,it was for meat on the table.
Dad never did get a deer with a bow,EVER.

true pleasure is a pair of red eyes coming at you in the night

Re: Driving at camp

My sons were about 8 driving on my lap. This year at 11 they are driving my truck with me in the passenger seat.
