    Not as bad but last night I ran over a discharge hose that will cost me $50 to fix and the next lawn completly tore off a wooden gate that will cost me $75 to fix.

    Its the time to do fix these that really hurts. First time all season I did any damage.

    Maybe you should consider carrying some Slime and a small compressor with you. It's helped me more than a couple times. I had a couple flats in one week, at the beginning of the season. Went through and slimed ALL tires.

    Well i shat myself about 25 miles from the house in the middle of the heat on a busy day. Had no clothes to change and had boxers and shorts on. Damn it sucked soooooo bad words can;t explain. I would have taken that day over mine anyday of the week.

    without bad luck you'd have no luck at all. Sorry to hear about your bad days, hope things turned out ok.
