Family Riders out there??

6 posts in this topic

Wondering if their are alot of "families" that do some wheelin. I seem to be blessed having 2 girls and a wife who enjoy the outdoors! grin I would really like to buy another one but can't stand being in debt. However as they grow and grow, can ya still put "life" on hold because of an 85$ payment?

Should I pull the trigger and just do it? I'm looking to buy something about 2 years old, even 2wd might work. Currently have an 07 sporty.

A person has to live a little today, for there may be no tomorrow!!!!!! I have missed opportunities with family and close friends for the sake of money/time. Now they are gone and so is the opportunity.

I will not let that happen again!

I am blessed as well with an 8yr old boy and a 9yr. old girl. They are growing up way too fast. It won't be long and they will be gone living their own lives. I will take every opportunity that is givin' me to spend time with them without regret.

Do what you can comfortably afford. If it is something that you all enjoy, DO IT! Someday you will be paid back in other ways.

I agree, debt is not a good thing. There are things not worth going into debt for and there are things worth being in debt for. You have to make that decision.

Good luck. Hope to see you and your family on the trails.

just turned 19 the other day!! She is the last one in

the nest, and much too busy with school and boys to

come riding anymore.

Maybe she will find a good hardworkin outdoorsy man like her father!!! At least that's what I'm shoooting for, although there seems to be fewer and fewer of them.

we had the same thing happen to us,, I enjoy the woods, as does our 12 year old daughter, and we used to cram outselves all on hubby's quad,, but it was uncomfortable for us all, hubby said he was going to get a new one for me,, but I kept saying "noooooo" due to the debt.. soon though he had a new one sitting in the yard for me,, and we haven't regretted it since!! now it's wayyyy more fun!!!

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.
    • Trump is the enemy of the truth ! 
    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl
    •   *marks "leech brings up someone's location as evidence their opinions are not relevant" on sillytown bingo card*   I'm one "big dave says you just don't understand freedom" away from a BINGO!
    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
