I am officially completely nuts! I just (11pm) got home from a trip in which I drove through a tornado, down roads still being opened by fire departments, and loaded my trailer by lantern-light, since the entire area was without power. And all this for what? GT stuff, of course! A new-to-me Swisher 44" trail mower, and a Simplicity 5212.5 LT, both in very good condition, for $225.

 

BTW, anybody want the Simplicity?

Josh, the good thing is that you survived to tell the story which is just as important as the find and capture. Glad you weren't hurt.

Thanks, Brian. Actually, the worst I was actually in was some heavy rain. All the truly dangerous stuff was happening just about half an hour ahead of me. The guy I bought them from said he really needed the cash, or I would've postponed the trip.

As my wife would say "Are you completely nuts?" and my reply has always been "Nope, only a handful.".

Over the years I've driven a thousand mile round trip on a Saturday/Sunday to buy I car I'd never seen, went over 200 miles a few years back to look at a Pacer wagon that I didn't buy, went 150 miles between work and dinner to get my Gilson. WE can't help ourselves...

Mine is so sure she never asks any more!

 

At least its official and you finally admit to your problem. PS, there is no cure!!!!!

 

"Hi, I'm Josh and I'm addicted to GT's!"  "Hi, Josh!"

 

And what part of the story makes you NUTS?....Oh, staying up so late and having to get up early for work! :poke:

 

Yeah, home at 11:30 and out again at 6:30.

 

I see nothing out of the ordinary here!

 

Odd thing is, neither do I!

 

Glad the tractor and mower were OK. Oh, and you too.
Got any pictures? :D

 

Too dark last night, left before dawn today. I'll get them up this evening.

 

Nuts, shoot, that just your human GT nature :thumbs:

 

simplicity.....What's the story, run? mower? 

 

Marty, its a 5212.5, just an LT. It supposedly runs, needs a battery. PO says it floods on hills, sounds like a needle/float issue to me. Deck is in excellent shape, even has a good seat.
