Plus, most of the newer ones have automatic transmissions, even and hydraulic everything else. Electric starters is a plus, too. Don't let the size of the equipment intimidate you, nothing is going to stay in your way once you get moving, LOL.



Back off woman! :shock:

I don't think there's any intimidation with the size. :shakeno: I think it's more the uncertainty of the controls. 8) But I guess if a woman can do it... :D


Opps... Here it comes! :D

Yes, but size does count! ;)

Oh, you silly boy. That is almost too easy--you can just fill in the blank. My favorite would be, "Show me the bulldozer controls that require a (male's body part) to drive it."

Oooooh boy, if you are going to correct the grammar in the posts, I am in trouble, LOL.

The controls in most pieces of heavy equipment are joysticks and if you play video games at all, you should do very well. Or even if you can chew gum and walk at the same time.....

Sorry -- the whole thing with apostrophes just makes my spine crawl. I consider it to be such a simple rule to remember, yet I've seen store signs in my college town that show people can't keep it in mind.

One of the ones that REALLY drives ME batty is when people use Effect (as in the result of a causative action) when they should mean Affect (the impact that it has on something or someone), and vice versa. Misuse of cite, site, and sight is another. English is such a confusing language, isn't it?

English: the Rock Soup of languages! Here's a link to the T-shirt ("The English Language: Carefully cobbled together by three blind dudes with a German dictionary") and a link to the original comic strip.

Hah, I agree UrbanSteader. Survival shelter and cabins are much more interesting. Somehow I don't think grammar and spelling are going to be a particularly valuable skill when TSHTF. Important for many careers? Yes. Please learn and use correct English. For survival, not so much.
