This winter I've spent 4 days off from work not riding, went to PA with some close friends to BBQ and shoot. Other than those 4 days every day I've had off work has been spent driving back and forth from where we ride or putting miles on the sled. My dad has that old school Dutch work ethic where he needs to be on the job to feel productive, but one day I hope to have a good enough crew that I can spend most of the winter riding and only head south to check in on them once in a while. My aim is for 3,000 miles to be a shitty year lol

I'll be at that by Sunday afternoon.

You're dad sounds like a smart man and I hope when he says "jump" you say "how high?".

:bc:

if they are that good they are certainly not going to be doing all the work while someone sits on their ass and collects a big check they will go out on their own.

Your dad earned their respect by being in the trenches with them.

If the son of the owner spends most of his time on vacation, why would you think the employees are gonna bust their asses for him?

Exactly...the likely scenario is that they fuck around all day, collect a check and joke about their boss being off somewhere sucking cock. :lol:

Oh, there is no real crew right now, it's just 3 of us. I'd have to build the business up after pops retires, it's a down the road kind of goal.

I know right....it was a gratuitous shot at his sexual proclivities but in all seriousness most crews can’t be left alone for a few days much less a few months.

3 is counting you and your dad right?

Don't think you can let the other guy fend for himself.

The third guy is actually my mom's cousin, he definitely works slower when we're not around, but he still gets the job done.

Sitting in my deck watching the sleds go by thru the trees. It’s 3:20. Close enough. Just got back from a little spin on my 99 xlt. Beauty of a day. 35degrees and sunny. I’m going to hit the trails hard tomorrow Solo. Definitely not on the 99 though lol.

Nice sled but what the hell is an old fuck like you doing with a sled made for a 20 something? Did it come with a flat brim hat a bottle of Geritol? Looks like a mid life crisis. :lol:
