Doing it when the kids got out proved to sharpen my mental focus on not hitting the redline and getting my shift points right.
Yer nuts, man.

When I was first learning and could barely drive, I practiced in all the back lots of an industrial park near where I live. After I got decent, I explored all the back roads west of my town...learned a lot of cool shortcuts out that way.
I drive a Phantom Black 2005 GTO M6. I commute in a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited.
