    Always wanted to find out where AvE is from! By his driving videos it looks like somewhere Meritt/Hope area.

    Kinda what I was thinking but I'm leaning more to Kamloops.

    Definitely not Hope, because he have to cross the coquihalla!

    I had lots of laughter watching him! My wife doesn’t like him because he cusses a lot!

    Yeah, there is that.
    My wife looks at me and I put my headphones on so she can't hear it.

    Yeah, I can't handle the guy.

    There are plenty on Youtube who behave themselves like civilized men.

    My dad taught me that anger and profanity has no place in tractor work or repair. Just makes everything worse. It is just a machine made of parts, it can't hear or feel you.

    I’m actually in bed all day!!! Picked up some nasty flue from my kids, who got it in school!
    That’s why I’m “talking” too much today!

    Take a few days to kick the bug off.

    I remember those days, the kids would bring something home and leave it with mom or dad.
    Don't miss that stuff at all.
    The younger guys at work (when I still did that) used to bring it into the shop.
    The one guy called his young son a petri dish, kid was always bringing something home LOL

    Grandson is too far away to visit on a regular basis, don't have to go to work anymore, I have had a good winter sickness wise.

    Laptop and bed, good combo for getting better.

    I actually worked in bed this morning! Tried to correspond with OEM which is in Austria by three different avenues, about new to me piece of equipment, then being reading the operators manual for the same thing which got me nowhere on the things I needed to know!

    Mind u it might be different in canada...i have accounts at new holland and kubota...never had a problem with either...all six of their mobile guys are good. Deadbeats dont survive long around here....u do it once and everyone knows in no time. Besides it is better to have a good name around here...your always working for the cousin, sister,brother or someone that knows someone....90% of my excavation business is word of mouth and repeat customers...so u screw one link in the chain....it all falls apart...but on the other hand i rarely get screwed for the same reason
