i passed it. i think the hardest question was what to do when u see a stop sign..lol

i also went and looked at the trailer. the guy has used it once just to haul mulch then it sat in his garage and he stored stuff on it. the brand is Carry-On which isnt the best trailer out there but it will still hold up for me to haul mowers and mulch. im gonna offer him $850 cash for it and see what happens.


im tempted to pull it with my John Deere down the road and put my scag on it...lol

might look kind of geeky running a small john deere rider down the road pulling a 6.5x12 trailer...lol but if it serves my purpose.

well this has been a great week for me picking up equipment.

i got the scag,

then i went and bought the 6.5x12 today for $900

then my parents and grandparents gave me an early birthday/christmas present of a 1997 Ford F-150 4x4. its a slick truck. they gave it to me early because i got my temps and they wanted me to get some practice time with the 5 speed. gonna go get my new trailer tommorrow with it,


so all in all im happy and got basically a new rig for $900
