Your First Drive

When you were a youngster, did your dad ever let you drive the car? On private land perhaps, where the laws regarding licenses did not apply?

Nope, he never did. To this date, it still pisses me me off to think that he never gave me a chance. He didn't even teach me how to drive. I had to pay for my own driving lessons.

I remember a little teaching done by older family members, siblings and cousins but nothing major. I ended up taking drivers ed in school and just doing it the old fashion way. I guess I did fine seeing as I aced the class.

I don't actually remember it, but there is a picture of me on my dad's lap and it seems I am driving. :) I was older than most kids when they get their license, but I am just happy I got it.

We used to own a large farm in Tennessee, and by the time I was 12 years old, I was driving my dads old Chevy all over our farm, by myself. I was tall for my age, and could reach the pedals easily, so I'd drive out to the pig pen, or the pond, or the chicken house or wherever.
