I usually leave it in gear and bump it with the key. Saves having to do a bunch of fancy footwork in a precarious situation.

Switching from auto to manual wheeling is tough. Last time out was much better for me, but still stalling on occasion. Would be nice to have an anti stall while braking downhill over rocks. Not liking pushing clutch to restart and not being in gear.

It doesn't help when wheel bearing on front passenger wheel is loose (now fixed) making you have to double pump the brakes to get them to really bite. I've tried keeping it in gear, but thought it couldn't be too good for the starter. Ended up using e-brake in those cases.

Don't forget Janey was stick, as well as my series. I actually prefer it over auto. As Ren says, you can crank the starter in gear and go.
