    Study your 5&10. Makes life a heck of a lot easier if you know it going in.

    They are very strict on knowing 10point and 5 seeing habits word for word. Probably 8 keys lifting and lowering and yard control as well

    Throw down some ice cubes in a parking lot and practice beforehand.

    The best way to simulate ice is to carry a 40lb box up a flight of stairs wearing roller skates.

    Will it work if I use ice skates instead?

    In my part of the country you earn ice driving street cred by finishing in the top 4 on Mario Kart 64's Frappe Snowland course.

    If there is a Hockey Rink anywhere around, maybe they will let you do laps at full speed with the Zambonie for practice?

    Almost as much fun as walking the stop off, glancing behind and seeing the truck sliding down the road.

    Looking at that Clarksville course on Google satellite shows how much of a joke integrad is.
