That's a beautiful property. You and the kids looked like you had a great time. You can't put a price on days like that. Thanks for sharing that.

Was it your steady hand or the youtube feature that takes the shake out of the video?

Well I finally had enough time to sit down and watch the whole vid. That was some priceless time spent with the Kid's and some really nice scenery. Thanks for sharing with us Alan.

Oh, it was definitely the 'tube feature. I almost didn't post it because of the "earthquake footage look".

I may put it back to original footage as it really messes with the words and kind of has a fisheye look

Didn't use any more than mowing for an hour or so. The Gear Drives would do a little better, but the hydro is great for creeping thru/over stuff.

Thanks for sharing the video Alan! I have woods too, but trying to drive a GT through almost any of them would end badly. Most is so steep it requires a 4WD ATV!

Wow Alan, I wish I had been up there with the Caterpillar, I would have had a blast. Of course I would have done some awesome hill climbs and donuts in the middle of the woods LOL.

Which reminds me. I need to pick up some new "No Trespassing" signs...

:poke: Slow & leisure, that's what tours are all about Casey. It's not a 4 wheeler, for Pete's Sake...

Your trial ride and video, inspired me. Thanks. I'd been meaning to do this for some time.
Testerday, I took my Kubota w/Fel and hoe, out into the bush, and started fixing up my trails.
They where Ok for the Gts, but a bit lumpy. Basically, I started knocking down the high spots, and
filling in the low spots. What a difference 6 hours of leveling made. I might actually be able to run
the mower on it eventually. Gotta snip off some roots, and maybe drag an I-beam around on it.
