In most of the sticks I've driven, other than some of the older 3-speed jobs,
you shift towards you to go from 1st to 2nd. No need to take your hand off
stick in the first place if you're on a straight piece of road...

It's getting to 3rd gear that's the tricky part. :)

Duct tape is like the force -- it has a light side and a dark side, and it
holds the universe together.
