344. You purposely go out of your way, just to buy a truck, that has the same color as your garden tractor.
345. You enter a state of depression, whenever your tractor don't start or run right.
346. You plowed a garden for everyone in the neighborhood, whether they wanted it or not, just so you can have more seat time.
347. You're willing to shell out almost $500.00 every four years, for battery replacement, in order to keep your collection running.
348. When complete strangers call you out of the blue, to see if you are interested in buying a tractor, or if you have a certain part for sale.
349. You take a picture of your collection every year, even though you haven't changed anything on any of them, or added anything new.
350. People know you as the John Deere, Allis Chalmers, Cub Cadet, etc. guy, but don't have the slightest idea what your first or last name is.
351. When people ask you for advice on buying a tractor, and how big of a tractor to buy.
352. Your tractors run better than any of your vehicles.
353. Some of your neighbors avoid you, because they are tired of listening to you talk about tractors.
354. The only way you can sleep at night, is to think about tractors.
355. You can't drag your butt out of bed early in the morning, Monday thru Friday, to go to work, but you're up at the crack of dawn on Saturday's and Sunday's, just so you can work on tractors.

358. You don't hang around wealthy people, because they can buy anything they want, whenever they want, and that upset's you.
359. You play the Lottery everyday, hoping to win enough money to buy that tractor on Craigslist.
360. You run down the Street, looking to see what kind of Garden Tractor it is, that you just heard starting up.
361. You can swap out a motor faster than your Lawn and Garden mechanic.
362. On an adverage, you have in your ebay watched list, at least 12 different Joe's Outdoor Power auctions.

Holy smokes Troy, you have been thinking on this havent you??
If you come up with another couple dozen we can change the title to "Johndeerelfmans top 100 symptoms of garden tractor-itus"
Lots of laughs here, thanks to all who have contributed! :worshippy2:


#100 check! #110-methinks one only has to keep the eyes shut, true passion in the heart and still throttle up...
Just found this thread and it's bound to be a seller when compiled and published.
