    You should get out of the truck and shovel a little. Get a standard as well. Pushing in the cluth a couple million times in a season does wonders for the left leg. I walk in circles by March becuase my left leg is so built!

    When your pounding down k.k. donuts all winter and the only exercise you get is your thumb working the plow control you start to get a little fat :nod: Thats why i only use walk behinds during the summer i need to get ready for the winter.

    LOL, it's not the plowing it's the eating! Besides that we should all buy stock in coffee beans! Between the plowing money, and the dividens from our coffee stockwe'll all be doing alright! :p

    I sell Ag chemicals in the summers. We deliver directly to the farmer, so I see a tremendous amount of seat time from April thru August anyway. Then I get a break for about 3 months then start plowing. My wife and I spend a lot of time at the gym to keep the weight off. She is much more successful than I am. Of course, her being a Weight Watchers leader helps her also. I just havn't folded to her pressure completely yet. I still enjoy a beer once and a while. What hurt me the most was quiting chewing last Feb 8th. I packed on 25 lbs in about 3 months. I thought that I was going to explode. Little by little it is coming off again.
