    I just learned how to operate a back hoe! I think I must have dug a 1/4 acre of my land up 4 feet deep. Then I proceeded to move giant piles of rubbish the previous owners left in the tank bed... I tell ya I had alot of good fun and built some 8 foot burms behind my targets while i was at it...:D:D:D Im gonna hit it again tomorrow and finish moving the junk in the tank and piling up dirt behind my other two target stands. Then I might just dig a couple more hole outta the way somewheres for the kiddos to play in. I think im gonna buy me a back hoe now:D:D:D

    you better believe it!!! I can only think of 2 other things that would qualify as 'funner' than operating a back hoe. #1 shooting, #2 is rather inappropriate for this thread/forum ;)... :D

    Yeah, I smashed the hillbillyhell outta an old travel trailer shell the previous owner left beside the tank dam. Then i shoved it up over the dam and into the tank bed. Made me feel like a force of nature, or a god or something...

    Thaks for the heads up;), I had a bit or a scare within the first hour trying to move pile of crushed asphalt. I took too big a bite with the bucket and it tried to turn over. Plus I learned rather quickly not to flip it into forward while its still rolling backwards, scariest damn wheelie of my life on a 35000 dollar machine that aint even mine:eek:, but then again, it was fun;)
