Default What do you do in winter?

Just a thread to find out what you guys do in the winter, e.g Our winter is here in New Zealand and we havent raced for about 2 months and i am deciding weather or not to start racing electric indoors to keep my skills up through the 'rainy' season.

Should move over here, one more KIWI won't make any difference over here, half your population live here anyway. (joking).

You could always save your money for next race season.

Just joking.
I live in Southern California, and it's usually sunny down here, so we usually don't have that problem.
My brother lives up in Washington state, and he usually races electric during winter.

Summer is starting to kick in here, but last winter I spent most my free time making rubber stains on the hardwood floor with my Xray M18.

When the batterypacks are charging I plug in my Serpent Virtual RC game port adapter and do some Big Scale Racing (www.bigscaleracing.com); it's a slow 1/5 car game but it's still R/C and I get to know most Dutch tracks with it.
