But i got an addiction... not to any drugs or anything. But something that burns more time and money. It is called Garden tractors. And I have some ways to tell if u got the bug. And be sure to add ur own.

1. every time u see a gt u get all excited
2. if ur wife said it is either her or the tractors and u pick the tractors
3. u start caring 100 dollar bills around with u. Just in case
4. u spend more than 2 hours a day on Gttalk
5. u will do anything for free as long as u can take ur tractor.

anything else guys

I don't have any new ones, but I have an extension of #1...You get whiplash from jerking your head from side to side while driving through the country because you don't want to miss one hiding in the weeds!

Hmmm, I already decided long ago on rule number 2, and I haven't had a serious relationship yet LOL.

I have another rule for you to tell.. #7. You knowingly chose to overpay for GT parts and pieces you really want... because you already budgeted to do so!! LOL

Also,

You never go more than 5 miles from home without ramps in the back of the truck.


You reach into your pocket to get that $10 bill(to buy a super gulp) beside the $100 bill, and you pull out the
head torque specs, and sequence for the entire Kohler K series.

#8 For me anyway;
Your car sits outside the garage during good weather and bad so that your tractors can be inside warm and dry.

You can identify more than 2 brands by silhouette, across the lawn, at dusk, behind a shed in the tall grass while driving.

You are really incurable if you can name both brand and model.
