Thats fun stuff right there
The part where you can't tell that you're moving at all and certainly have no idea how fast you're actually going is the worst! I still don't like whiteout conditions, but I've gotten more used to them and if I'm in a place I'm familiar with I don't get *quite* as freaked out but I constantly hear people around me experiencing it for the first time commenting about how they can't tell they're moving or how it looks like they're going uphill when they're really moving at half- warp speed down the hill... It's disconcerting to say the least.

Also, if the visibility is really bad go hop in the trees or stick to a tree-line, it gives your eyes something to focus on and makes a big difference.
lol @ Jedi-Snowboarding

Fayewolf, congrats on making it through the day! Keeping your legs super noodly as you said helps, and throwing in speed checks frequently is a good idea on these kinds of days. Still, you never know when you'll hit a patch of ice or, like me on Hood this morning, the edge of the cat track and go flying in a very ungraceful sort of way. These days are good for people-watching and hot-chocolate-drinking if you ask me
