It's kind of embarrassing how long this goal has been on my list. I think if I were to dig into the archives, it was on my original 101in365 list in 2009. It's not for lack of trying, really. It's just that it's not easy to find someone who has a car with a manual transmission (who is also willing to let me possibly ruin said transmission by not knowing how to shift properly)!
If you have a manual car and are in the area, I'll be your best friend if you teach me how to drive it!
Missing this one yet again. Not for lack of trying! I actually made much more of an effort this year to try to check this one off, but finding a manual car has proven to be more difficult than I imagined! Next year I think I might try to get an international driver's license so I can rent cars abroad... which also means needing to be able to drive manual since that's what most international rental cars are. Who'd have thought this one would take so much effort before I even get in the driver's seat!
This one is becoming more and more necessary. I'm finding myself wanting to get out of the major cities when I travel and I need to be able to drive a manual car to do that!
