    well, i had a sinus infection a while back that slowed me down. that got better after 3 weeks and then it hit me again, hard.

    i spent from a wednesday till a friday in the bed. got up maybe 3 times for a total of 4 hours. i didn't eat and finally i went to the minor med (thanks to hoss for taking my truck and trailer home) and they sent me to the ER. i had more blood taken out of me than most people probably bleed in 10 years. no one knew (or at least wanted to say) what was wrong. blood count was way off (white) and they didn't know what was causing the infection. truth be known i was sick and got torn up by the pests. i'm not gonna say i had it, but i was pretty weak from the infection when it hit me again. we are also under an alert in this area now.

    after i got well we had a massive electrical storm come thru and that of course blew up my modem so i am trying to get a system back together now.

    also to make this fit more inline with the forum, walker guys when you do leaf clean ups, do you raise the front height or leave it the same as the rear? what height do you generally do it at also.

    Mike....hopefully you are back in the saddle. Never fun when you don't feel right. Glad to hear it wasn't anything serious.

    West Nile Virus. J/K

    On the Walker I some times set the front higher, most of the time when the pile got huge out front I would hook my toes under the front frame and lift up on the front. You can lift it a lot higher that way than what the pins will hold it up. Of course you can't hold it up all that long, the thing gets heavy in a hurry.

    well, i didn't want to say west nile but i wouldn't rule it out. as i type this there WAS a pest on my desk. don't guess i should burn an off coil in the house! lol

    thanks for the tip on the walkers. the guy i bought mine from said he just pins the front settings up a notch or two so it doesn't bulldoze everything. makes sense to me. i'll have to try it in a few months.

    hoss, i'm just a figment of your imagination.
