Hope the wrong people don't see this. When I lived in Ohio a busybody old lady called the police on her neighbor who let his 13 yr old granddaughter drive the truck in the pasture when they took hay out to the cows. They hauled them both off, him in cuffs and her with CPS. Don't know what ever came of it, but it was quite ridiculous.
I was in 6th grade when I started driving tractors. My cousin was still small enough she had to kick the shut-off with her foot to stop the 684. Unless it's a real POS or the end of a really long day, it's hard to peel me back off the seat once I get there. Always been that way.
When my sister went to grad school at NC State, they had to take water samples from the river near the city's sewage plant, she was the only one who could back the boat in the water. One day they got stuck, she went and looked over the tractor and brushhog that were sitting there, started it up, and pulled the truck out. Everyone else was trying to figure out who was going to walk up the hill to get cell service to call their advisor to find out what to do.
