when i was in Germany last Christmas i decided to go to the Zugspitze, the highest mountain in germany.
I tried the day before new years eve, but had to turn back due to the heavy snows making the roads to dangerous to drive on.
I decided to try again on the day of new years eve and made it. Apparently you get a great view from the top of the mountain, but it was snowing so hard i couldnt see much more than 30 feet in front of me.
On the way back to Salzburg in austria where i was staying at the time, i reached the top of a hill on the autobahn, only to loose control of the car on the way down. I did a 36, bounced off the car in front of me, and then hit the barrier in the middle of the road. Moments later a Mercedes gracefully glided past - going backwards... ending up about 100 yards in front of me. As that car hit the barrier, a car driven by a Swiss man bounced into the barrier just feet behind me.
