    Well i'm on his side. It is a bit fun to use. I took these pics this morning while waiting for the bus. I was outside the truck when the bus came and he wanted to get a few moves in before getting on the bus. I assume it was for bragging rights on the way to school.

    Good stuff Playboy! I got two boys at home that love raising & lowering, angling the plow. My 4 year went plowing with me a few times last season...never in my wildest dreams would I guess that someone could fall asleep while plowing.:)

    My 2 year plowed my driveway with me last week, he can't talk real well yet but he sure was jabbering away...think he had fun.

    Isn't it a good feeling when you make their day? I haven't had enough snow yet to take my boys with me but as soon as there is a school closing and I have to take a sick day to stay with the kids, they'll be with me...

    My 7 year old loves to plow with me . He knows when I put it in drive he drops it and when I put it in reverse he raises it. It makes it fun.

    My dad is like the grounds keeper at his office for overtime and plowing is one of the things he does there. I have been going in the truck every storm plowing with dad since i was 6 and have been plowing that place on my own since i was 8, decent sized parking lot with some smaller areas for the company trucks. Ive gotten very good at plowing and cant wait to be doing it on my own next year.

    Guys, my dad started me riding on his lap just steering while he opporated the plow, shifter and pedals. Then i started using the plow control and steering, then, i just ended up doing it all, i learned in steps when i was really your and that really helped me.

    I guess one of the things that make it fun is that is it sorta like destruction. You go in and see the nice smooth snow covered surface and mess it all up leaving big piles every where. My son thinks it's a robotic shovel. He was mad that I took the plow off this morning.

    When your a old and have kids of your own you'll be plowing with them thinking of the story you told us with you and your dad.

    my favorite is plowing on christmas morning looking in at all the customers opening presents with their families and knowing my wife and little boy are waiting til i get home to do the same. i can honestly say that is the only time i wish i had an office job.

    I experienced that last year. I have 4 kids. 12(G)/ 11(B)/ 6(B)/ 4 months(B). we have a snow man kit and last year we only got to make one snowman. The wife and kids wanted to make one every big snow storm. This year we'll do more. I got the kids snow boots and water proof gloves for Christmas.
