Jaysin, I am not sure it would be much fun without the family, but it also has perk benefits, $ for repairs/upgrades is easier to justify when there is a kid asking/begging/crying for a ride.

Once I was old enough to appreciate the damage I did to my fathers tools growing up I was amazed at the ease with which he took it. He explained by noting that the broken dial calipers the dull blades, the temper removed from pliers, etc.. were cheap education compared to a college and I learned a great deal. Additionally he passed on his interests to me. I am sure this is tougher if you make you living from those tools, but I think of how many auctions I have been at where the kids just want to get rid of dads stuff, I want my girls to be a part of what I love even if it is a bit of a pain to get anything done with little fingers spreading ball bearings in the dirt...

I need to redo the skis more curve at the ends and shorter, right now they are too much for such a small vehicle.
