I grew up about 4-5 blocks from that hill and a couple years it actually snowed enough to sled down it.

It's funny you say that. I grew up in Jonesboro where the road across our back yard was steep enough to sled on. When it iced over, people would come from all adjacent neighborhoods to sled down the hill. Talk about fun! The mayor would actually order traffic shut down there for the sledding because it wasn't at all a major road.

Then old Mayor Zuber died and they elected some jerk who wasn't aware of this event and he started putting sand on this road when it iced over. No wonder politicians get assassinated.

My house now is on top of a giant hill. If we ever get snow I'm going to have to have every kid within a mile radius on my front lawn.

This is very unlike you Joe, but I knew there was another side of you. Very nice and very nice hill at your house. Kids would love sledding there.

Hey buddy get your hands off my old lady You know what happens when you roll Snow Man down the hill. The snow balls get very big and that is why the Snow Girls think he is cold blooded. I must get back to the freezer this LA weather is kicking my ice hole.

LOL, I did not know that particular route. But I agree it's amazing we lived to adulthood. I have lots of stories but I don't want to appear to be too stupid all at once. But there was that time I plugged a DC slot car motor into our AC wall outlet. And that Cherry bomb in the neighbors mailbox with a time delay fuse (a cigarette burning to the fuse stuck in one end) And the flaming tennis balls soaked in gasoline. And the bottle rocket wars.... Oh did I mention wheelies!!

There was one neighbor named Peter Davis (who passed away I believe) whose father was a vet in the 60's and they had a baby chimp who would get on the back of Peter's Honda SL100 and they would ride wheelies up and town Dillingham. They even made the newpaper with picture!

LOL, today PETA would be on the scene with a lawsuit for endangering chimps with cruel and unusual punishment. But I swear that ape loved it!

The ride back up is a blast as well, the old heart hits about 172 most of the time. Makes it that much stronger. About five times in a row is enough.

LOL, I remember going down thrill hill on my 10 speed in the mid 70's and it freaked me out. I really thought I was going to die! But I made it! whew! Never again.......
