    I can tell you from experience that there is almost nothing as exciting as operating heavy equipment. I have a couple of buddies in the excavating business that would let me play around when things weren't too busy.

    Wish I had some heavy equipment to play with, but we have plenty of other 'desert friendly' toys!

    Stop on by on your way to Vega, heck, I might go with you!

    I'd love to play in that sandbox. I've spent thousands of hours getting paid to watch construction equipment being operated, but I've only had a few chances to run any big stuff myself. I have spent some time on a Bobcat and a JCB loader/hoe, though.

    Back in the day...

    My neighbor across the street had a D-9 bulldozer he just left out in the desert....my brothers, his son and I spent many a weekend digging random holes in the desert (I'm sure no longer allowed)

    I worked for several years at Ft. Irwin (military desert training center). The guys let me use the skip loader to pull huge trees out (put a chain around the tree and I'd just lift it out). I'm sure they were all laughing at a 20 year old girl operating heavy equipment (were talking 1974 here). Good thing they didn't have FB back then

    They didn't laugh when I drove a tank

    I didn't see any huge trees when I was there in the early 90"s now I know why.
