If you use the front blade, or get the little loader bucket that goes with it, either get the wheel weights or (both) fill the rear tires (use a tube style tire) with saline solution or anti-freeze. They get tippy. Also, you might want to retrofit a rollbar for the same reason.
If you do the saline, make sure the wheel interior metal is well coated with paint or preservative.
The turf tires aren’t worth a crap if you use it off the lawn; the lugged tires will chew up your lawn. Chains over turf tires make a decent compromise for the winter.November 3, 2014 at 11:47 am #8699

I think the angle grinder is my favorite tool. Even more that the chainsaw. There is just so much that it does well. But even more than the chainsaw, it has some real finger pruning capabilities.
Glad you didn’t get more than knuckle deep.
By the way, now might be a good time to invest in a full face helmet for the scooter. You seem to be on a roll.October 24, 2014 at 9:37 am #8669

I haven’t even taken a gun off the rack yet.
The kiddos have had stuff every weekend day. On the plus side, the oldest qualified for the state cross country meet as a freshman (freshwoman?) On the down side, watching cross country mixes the thrill of youth track and field with the visual appeal of an F1 race. You watch them run by once, and clap. When it is over, someone tells you who won.
Both kids decided they want to ski a lot this year.
January of ’16 is looking good for me, though.October 13, 2014 at 9:28 am #8634

You can’t have too many guns.
Just by way of example, in case of a zombie apocalypse, you want plenty. By the time you figure out zero hour has arrived, most of you good local gun stores will have already been looted.
As to the rest, mostly they aren’t good buys. Especially for me. I have sold exactly ONE gun over time; a Browning A Bolt with a screwed up barrel. I like to fondle the others too well. Even the ones that I go years without shooting. Consequently, I just buy what I like any more (at least within reason).September 17, 2014 at 3:56 pm #8395
I loved those old McCullochs. Even though I almost took a leg off with one once. Cutting a branch above my head, and at the time I thought saw chaps were strictly for pussies. Only ended up cutting 1/2 of a leg off my Levi’s, and scratching the skin. Gave me a new appreciation for torque and momentum.September 15, 2014 at 3:49 pm #8378
Hello, country bumpkin.
It snowed here Friday. 81 yesterday. We truly get some schizophrenic weather.September 15, 2014 at 3:47 pm #8377

All is well. Just busy as hell.September 8, 2014 at 1:05 pm #8330
Over/under, or a pump 870 or SX2.
Both ways are mechanically reliable in the cold and mud. Less to go wrong. All three always go bang.April 21, 2014 at 8:59 am #7869

You didn’t waste much time there.
You must be the kind of guy that takes a low mileage used car and immediately puts a dent in the door and takes the trunk lid off. I mean sure, you can throw the groceries in the back a lot easier after that, but dang….
