Good job good luck! Somebody will see the value You hope....
HahaIt's been a while since I've checked in so it's time for a short update. We finally sold our farmhouse and barn in Pennsylvania so I'm no longer making a weekly 5 hour round-trip trek to mow the 9 acre lawn. We kept the remaining 55 acres and leased it to local farmer to make hay so I no longer need to brush hog. It was a tough decision as this was my childhood home but old age is catching up. The house was in great shape but a 1916 six-bedroom house, 8 stall garage and barn requires a lot of maintenance.
Back in Ohio, I re-evaluated our lawn care which takes 7+ hours (mowing, trimming, edging). So, after considerable overthinking, I finally purchased a Scag zero-turn and cut my lawn care time to just 3 hours! A zero turn mower is a game changer and I should have made the leap years ago.
Since I'm retired, I'm not exactly sure what I'll do with an extra four hours every week....maybe I should jump back into refurbishing the pile of snow blowers in the barn.....just sayin' View attachment 167640 View attachment 167641 View attachment 167642 View attachment 167643
I have a very similar unit that has a small Honda GX engine to run the compressor. I have both the standard SCUBA mouth regulators and a pair of clear diving helmets for it. It's cool being able to walk around on the bottom and have the unit float on the surface and follow along....The neat one was a product called the Scuboy.
I did a lot of SCUBA in golf course ponds fetching golf balls when I was in junior high school. I've been a lifelong snorkeling enthusiast and have done open water in Bermuda, Jamaica & Belize in addition to extensive freshwater snorkeling in lakes, rivers & quarries in Maine and the rest of the northeast US. I first tried SNUBA diving (surface compressor, regulator on a hose and snorkeling gear) in Maui about 20 years ago. And then about 15 years ago tried the helmet bottom-walking in St. Thomas. After those very positive experiences, I started acquiring my own hookah rig with the little Honda 4HP GX....We've done tourist SCUBA a few times, down in Mexico, etc...
