backwards in reverse gear.
It's a little known secret, but I press down on the accelerator peddle with my foot and keep my hands on the steering wheel.
Oh, and sometimes, if I'm feeling a bit wild, I'll even downshift.
being nice to my car and cheering him on...he's an old geezer, but a trooper!
I try to get a good run at it so I make it up and over without changing down . Sometimes depending how steep it is I'll even do it. Got to hate them ones with traffic lights on the incline.
If it's a tough incline, I put the automatic transmission into 2nd, and if t's traumatically steep, I would either scream or close my eyes.
In a stick shift? I'm not accustomed to driving those anymore, but when I do (husband's car), if I have to stop and begin driving again on a hill, I usually freak out and pray I don't roll into the car behind me.
