    Re: Do i gotta?

    "I wanna" turned in to "do i gotta" about 15 years ago for me when it comes to anything to do with snow or the cold. We don't get a ton of snow..maybe 50-60 inches per year on average, but I hate the snow and the cold. I used to look forward to running the snow blower or running my dad's plow truck for him. I also used to do a lot of cold weather stuff for fun: skiing, sledding, ice fishing, winter camping, etc. When I hit 45, something changed and I just can't stand the cold anymore.

    Looks nice in woods and fields.
    You don’t need ice/cooler.
    Drinking beer around a fire when sledding
    or ice fishing is nice.
    Pretty much everything else about it sucks.

    Me too. Zack (youngest son) lives in suburbia. He wasn't meant to live there. Each snowmobile had had some minor mechanical failure a couple years ago. Zack wanted to know if he could have them. Big brother bristled, but I said, "Neither of us have troubled ourselves to use them or fix them in years. Why do you care?"

    Zack has them repaired, he's pestering me to go on an all day ride Sunday. It just doesn't appeal to me.

    Vermont natives don't ski. It's almost universally true. Kids ski in the school program, but few do as adults. Mrs. B is of Norwegian decent, her father thought it terrible we didn't ski. When Seth was 9 we took it up again. I had a friend with a family vacation home here, he & his family got heavily into the activity. For a number of years he & I went mid week sometimes, & on weekends. We were FAST, probably too fast.

    My friend got hurt, lost his nerve. My sons got VERY good! I held them back. Mrs B proved too cautious for me, I'd ski halfway down, wait for her. Frequency of ski days tapered off, I haven't been in a few years now. I just don't have the urge, & with Covid, crowds do NOT appeal to me.

    I cut wood, repair machinery, & build stuff in spare time outdoors. Most of this week daytime work is outdoors, just not appealing to recreate outdoors also.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    " We don't get a ton of snow..maybe 50-60 inches per year on average..." I have always admired an optimist. I abandoned NJ years ago after I got out of the Seabee's and we really did not get weather like some of you folks here. I don't mind snow as long as I don't have to live in it. Jim

    As we've never had more than 3 inches a year, snow is just good fun for us. Apart from if you have summer tyres (winter tyres aren't mandatory over here). Then it sucks for about 2 days a year.
    I was in my 20s before I'd even seen a snow drift big enough to jump into...

    I wanna work on welding but he interested in driving. If hecwants to can get in about anything and run it with couple minutes instruction.
    I got no interest in winter sports either. I got buildings to keep the snow off, indoor parking and even heated parking.

    At 14 I had my oldest daughter loading dump trucks from a sand pit, she kept the pit floor nice and level and never had a problem guessing how much made a load in each truck.
    Nowadays she has her own 6,000 acre wheat farm and plenty of equipment to play with.

    My daughter never got that proficient at that age on the wheel loader or mini X. She could however, at age ten parallel park the 6x4 JD Gator (no mean feat) inside the orange cones wed set up along a curb.

    Nowadays at age 20 she lives and works in NYC. and runs up huge Uber bills. LOL.

    In winter the beer moves from the beach to a cozy bar. Snow has no negative impacts on volumes consumed...

    After 3 kids and 6 grandkids, I've seen my share of first time drivers. We all managed to survive. One of the biggest reasons I left the city to come back to the farm was so my kids would grow up here.

    In theory only based on your observations or participation ??

    And most likely not executed in a controlled environment I'm guessing ....

    I wasn't smart enough to leave. Been here on the farm the whole 70 years.

    It has taken years of extensive testing and experimentation. I am confident in the final data set. Not necessarily a controlled environment, but sometimes real world testing yields the most accurate results.

    Nope, but every once in a while you have to step out around the corner and make some yellow snow... and more room.

    I see you didn't like the stock steps on your loader either. I need to do something like that with the CAT, but it articulates right at the front of the cab and things get tight.
