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.

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!!!

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
