Another kid! Good luck with your biz. How far do you want to take landscaping? Like as a full time job, on the side, etc? I sure wish they would let 14 year olds drive around here. Even just for work. That would be cool too.

hey i understand i wouldnt want the typical everyday 14 year old to be driving either. but i grew up on a farm and still work on our farm. driving tractors, atvs, and vechicles was part of the job.

Good luck. If you just stay with it and put a good name out there for yourself then things will happen. Good things.

I have been driving since I was about 5 or 6. We have a timeshare on Nantucket Island, and you can drive on the beach there, so when we would go fishing in the morning my dad would let me drive on his lap(I only got to use the steering wheel, he did the gas). And on the beack there are like premade ruts so you dont get stuck trying to makeyour own, and it was basically the same thing that you see at the amusement parks with the gikarts when they're on the steel tracks, so even if you wanted to, you couldnt drive the car off of the track, same thing as that, but with a car, and you can go over lanes. And from there(10 years later) I can drive on the road with my dad in the car. Illegally of course, but seeing the cops around here is a fairly rare occurrence. Not to jack this kids thread, but I truly believe that kids should be able to drive legally at a younger age than legally required(obviously older than 13), as long as they go through the same test, even harder if they want, as long as they've had practice, and will be using it to do good for the town such as landscaping and stuff.

Thats how I learned.... Not to far from there either. My little brother somehow managed to pop our izuzu trooper out of the tracks and practically chase some people up the dunes before my dad stopped
