    So this weekend my nieghbor up my camp had to do a small roofing job and the guy that owns this building gave him keys to his equipment. My friends went to work... I just went to drive some equipment. It was really fun because it was my first real time driving a skid steer. The guy had a new holland skid steer, a clark fork lift, and a Kubota Bx24(which I had always wanted to try, but the engine just didn't seem to be running right). It was alot of fun and we are probably going back to finish the job next weekend. I took some pics:

    Kubota fun!

    my friend cut some high grass in the back when the kubota overheated, I had cut some grass in the front and striped it real nice, but forgot to take a pic
