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

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!!!

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
