Driving a Manual

This weekend, Charles decided that it was time that I learn to drive his BMW, and look what happened!!!!

Just kidding, this is not Charles' car :) All went well. I didn't do as bad as last time driving his manual. I actually did quite well besides the fact that I don't always remember things. Like that I have use the clutch when I stop. It is hard for me to remember which peddle was which. Charles said I was too aggressive in shifting, but we can work out the kinks. I am doing quite well at starting from first gear though, except for those few times when I forgot the clutch altogether.

They say that driving a stick is to save on gas, but I am not sure that holds up for me.
