The thing is fun to drive, it's like a go kart almost because your sitting right out front, and it's peppy, it's got alot of power, especially when it builds boost.

Another day of no mowing here. The ground is so soaked that you can't get on the lawns. I tried to cut where I store my stuff and there's a thin layer of water all over the ground and it's high ground.

Well, light rain this am. Then it dried up for a bit, then light rain again. we just kept on going at that point. Finally stopped working at 6pm because it got heavier. We just had a downpour here a little bit ago. I really am hoping for Friday to be dry all day.

It stayed sunny and hot all day today, the ground is still squishing like mad when you walk on it though. Going out tomorrow and friday, probably 14 hr days each day just to try and get most of my mowing done.

heres what I accomplished today, got all the pieces cut for the bed, and got the frame rails welded on, amazing how welding 2 pieces of channel can stiffen the frame up. Not much to look at though.

Thats the dinky garage that's going to be ripped down in a couple weeks to make room for the shop.

On a side note, whats everyones thoughts on this wrap. It's a very rough drawing the guy did just to get an idea if the concept is what I want. I like the idea, but it needs something different, it's almost like too much blue. And the name won't be white on white of course. Whats everyones thoughts? More grass, like a taller closer view of grass and less blue sky? I didn't even want it wrapped, but my friend that does the stuff wants to get more wraps on the road to promote what they can do so he's doing the wrap for what a normal set of logo's would cost
