    Just an update...

    I still have the truck. The trailer is being traded along with the Exmark (probably) for a 2003 6X16 open trailer and some cash this year. A new Ferris SD 36 will replace the Exmark (probably, I may go the DD route). The Dixie is for sale and has been replaced with a 2003 Dixie XT2800. A Stihl trimmer now rides with the Shindaiwas. The MTD stays at home and a 1990ish Crapsman mower took it's place. The Grass Gobbler has been replaced with a poly GrassPacker (highly recommended!).
