View Full Version : What are the ages of lawnsite members?

04-11-2007, 10:25 AM
I'm curious to know the average age of the members that actively participate on this Forum. I've seen many posts with very young members and I find it interesting.

I'm gonna try to set up a Poll for this thread. Please be truthful when answering the age poll.

04-11-2007, 05:58 PM
yep. me too. 24. Hitting the big 25 in June.

You should narrow that 18-30 to be 18-25;25-35; 35-40; 40 and above. JMO

This will narrow down the younger LCO's that you were trying to find out about.

I was thinking the same thing. I would guess a good portion are in the 18-25 range.
Myself: 38 this year.

I know what you mean, seems like it's right around the corner, 20 years ago I could hardly see 3-4 years down the road, now it's like 20 years is but a stretch... I swear I wake up, get dressed in a hurry, skip breakfast and rush out to go cut 3-4 lawns, I go to look at my watch to see if it's lunch time and blam another month just flew past me some kinda way, that's if I'm paying attention.

I'm 40.

04-12-2007, 12:07 PM
39 NOW 40 By the end of the season

04-12-2007, 12:15 PM
You know you're an old when......

You wear a depend while on your ZTR
You mow a lawn and then realize it's not your customer
Can't remember the difference between a weed wacker and wacky weed
mulch starts smelling better than you
Say things like " why I remember when there were only push mowers ! "
Advil doesnt help anymore
Thought hydro drive was a boat
Used to buy at a nursery but now live in one

Hey I started when I was 19 . By the time I was 23 I had 80 maintenance accounts, and was running about two jobs a week, I did most of the work myself back then too . I wouldn't want my 23 year old self to be my competition now .

Well, I turn 44 soon. Been at this business long enough that pretty soon you young'ens will feel it in the college classroom.
I suspect the eye candy might make me feel better, but if they keep running down the hallway screaming, I don't know for how long.

04-13-2007, 11:12 PM
43 here in new England.

Maybe old enough to operate a mower for yourself, but not legally as an employee, if your profile is accurate.
