That was my concern. The Pilot Sport PS2's that are on the back aren't to found of slick conditions. After I manged to get the car out of the parking spot I went for a little drive to see how the main roads were. As I was coming back home, I ended up turning the car around in the middle of an intersection close to the house. Luckily there were no other cars around. I wish I still had my PZero Nero M&S's on the back but that's a whole other story.

Speaking of the weather, I was out last Friday during the real bad snow. When I left the club at about 4am, I couldn't see the streets. I tried driving home but I ended up almost hitting a light pole so I parked at a gas station and had a friend get me in a 4x4. I told someone at the gas station that it was stuck and they said it was cool to get it later. I came back Sunday morning and they towed it.

If you left the club at 4 am, it sounds like you shouldn't have been driving in the first place, but I don't know the whole story. Sucks they towed your car though.

Last year, during the only snow/ice storm we had, I became stuck in a gas station parking lot. I went there well after the storm began just trying to get a few things because I had no idea how bad it was going to get. Both exits for the station are uphill and proved to be too much for my car. Did the same thing you did, called a buddy with a 4x4. We had to use a shovel and rake to clear out a path from the pumps to the parking stalls just so I could park it. The next day, the car wouldn't even move because of all the snow packed in the rear wheel wells from my attempts to leave. It was basically solid ice by that time.

I'm not sure what you're meaning. I'm thinking maybe you mean if I was drinking? I'm not a drinker, so I was cool to drive.

I even had trouble getting the car home once I got it back. My driveway is steep so I couldn't even park it properly. I finally got everything shoveled, but it looks like its gonna snow again. I'm not taking the car out this time if it does.

Yeah, I was talking about drinking. Do you work at the club? I'm guessing it closes at 2 a.m. like most do.

No, I don't work there, just hanging out. Maybe I should clarify, this was a club of the exotic variety. They usually close a little after 4.

Ah yes, that clears it up. Was it Christie's?

Not this night. A friend and I tried Chester's, but it was really weak so we went down to Players Club, which turned out to be great. I went to Christie's a few weeks ago and we had a good time. I actually tried to run by Christie's last night around 3am, but they were already closed, must have been a weak night. Haha, I sound like a fiend, but I can't sleep sometimes, so what better way to kill time.

I hear ya. The last time I was in G'boro for "play" we went to Christie's for my friends bachelor party. What a night! They decided to bounce to a different club and the limo left me there. They couldn't find me right before they left so a joint decision was made to have the limo come back and get me after I realized they had left. The reason they couldn't find me was because I was doing my thing up in VIP.

I do make it to G'boro quite often but it's usually for work. Our corporate office is there.

Yeah man, sounded like a good night. Tonight was possible outing. It's supposed to be a birthday bash for one of the ladies at Players Club, but weather is sucking again, so I don't think I'll be making it out. Who do you work for that's out here in GSO?

Oh man, sorry to hear. Did this happen on 85 or a secondary road? Why were you down here?

BTW, everything goes in this thread. Nothing shall be labeled as "off topic."

damn mike, that sucks.

when yall are in greensboro you should check out The Gold Club, its a really really really nice looking gentlemans club. actually. since most of our memeber base is dudes, i think we should have a meet there sometimes. but the girls are hot, and the place is classy. drinks are a little expensive though. i think one time house vodka was like skyy for like 6-7 dollars a shot.

We have a Gold Club down here but it's getting close to the bottom of the barrel. I hope the one up there is much better and not related to the one here. The two best ones here are the Men's Club and Uptown Cabernet, but the Gentlemen's Club is also nice. BTW, I can practically see the Gentlemen's Club from my office. It's only 1/4 mile away.

Welcome to the forums. What color is your M? Any mods? I used to see a couple different ones driving back and forth to work on 77. Did you take 77 to and from work?
