    Well, I'm sure Brent is planning on me being the one who goes backwards, so he can get his 365 challenge picture of the day

    You should know that as a kid (around between 12-14 years of age), our neighbor had a D-9 bulldozer just sitting out in the desert (it wasn't illegal at the time). All of us kids used to go out there and I'd dig a few mean holes (by myself) here and there (oh, maybe that's why there are laws now )

    And, when I worked at Ft. Irwin as a laborer (age around 19-20), I ran the skip loader to yank out giant trees (30-40 ft high). Back then, the real skip loader operator could have fun and let a teenager run it while while he made all the other male laborers wrap chains around the tree and attach the chains to the skip loader and I would gradually raise it and yank it up from the roots. No hard hats...the good old days.

    This is all in addition to my operating a dump truck on occasion and the magnet truck (I was the official magnet truck operator).

    So, when it comes to heavy equipment, I may have to show Brent how to operate it

    Watched Brent through the binocs on the highway leaving in the dark...all the red lights on the trailer made it look like a Christmas float. Safe travels.

    Oh it is fun when you do that. I did it right after we got ours. The father in law let out one of those long 4 letter word laced speeches. Wasn't really my fault, the ground gave way behind me, and there I sat. Looking like the space shuttle ready to launch.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Taking it off the trailer is my bet....
