    Well i think that i saw the one to top all of you. OK i was getting ready to go to the store, and i heard something coming down the road, so as i looked to see what it was, i saw a 10 speed bike, with a 2.5 gal gas can tied with rope on the handle bars, and being puled behind it was a 3.5 hp Murry push mower, the guy on the bike had it tied about 3 ft behind him and "they were booking it" :dizzy: Now i do not feel so bad any more. All i could think of was the poor little wheels on the push mower moving down the road at speeds in excess of 15 mph ;) Now that is one way to save on the over head, turn your mower into a trailer and power the rig with peddle power ;) Well now i m big time. :cool2: OK now you all have your work cut out for you. TOP IT!!!!!!!!

    How about a guy using an electric weedeater getting the power from a generator strapped to the roof of his Escort?!

    Tuesday morning I saw a man pushing a old push mower with a rake balanced on the handle bars and a one gallon gas can sitting on top of the push mower. Had a pair of shears stuck threw his belt. He would probably like to have had a bike to pull his equipment! Thiis was in an upscale neighborhood too.

    This is one of the reasons I always keep a camera handy. Weather it be my digital or a cheap disposable. That was definitly a kodak moment.
