I am 32 now, I started driving tractor as soon as I was old enough to reach the clutch and brakes on the old ford 3000 raking and teddering hay. We lost the farm in upstate NY when I was 15 and Dad moved the family to MA to find work. He stayed in farming in one aspect or another working for a Nursery in MA and now a vegetable outfit in NH. I never stopped working, since learning to drive that tractor I have never been unemployed for more than a couple of weeks, I have been at my current job as an auto tech for 12 years. I still help Dad with the tractors at his job, and we are working on resurrecting a Massey 204 in our spare time. Would love to someday get back to my farming roots and the simple things like driving that 3000 in circles in the hayfield for hours on end (although with a little better seat LOL). Life was easier then. So many young people would benefit from a little hard work and discipline today, it is refreshing to see that these values and work ethic are not totally lost on the next generation.

I think you are right on the work and discipline. It gives a person experience on working together on something to accomplish a goal.
