OK, so I have to admit I avoid the highway like the plague and take the much nicer scenic side streets to work. Along the route there's a very steep grade hill that I usually traverse with no issues whatsoever and its actually kind of fun. However, today, for the first time, I got caught at a red light right in the middle of the hill. Never having been stopped like that on a hill, I was trying desperately to figure out what to do when the light turned green. So, when it did turn, I had it in first and tried to keep a few fingers on the brake while slowly giving it some throttle so I wouldn't roll backwards. Sounded like a good plan, but of course, I stalled her out. Fortunately, there was no one behind me so I turned her back on and tried the same tactic again but this time with more throttle and it worked so now here I sit at my desk wondering if there's a better way to start out on the side of a hill like that??
