    It's still very warm here in arizona so most of us are still boating. We do however have the same crappy gas as everyone else, starts going bad at a couple of weeks and can cause major proplems in 4 stroke outboards in about 4 months.A little stabilizer in those small engines and boat motors etc can save you a bunch later.Don't mean to sound like a commercial but every spring I see alot of unhappy people. they never had to use that stuff before! well the gas nowadays sucks so just save some problems and do it LOL don't forget to drain those exhaust manifolds and engine blocks,camper water tanks etc. ..jeff

    I'm looking forward to winterizing my lawn mower but then I always look forward to that.

    The way the rains have been coming and temperatures have been going up and down I may be mowing in January. Man, I'm getting tired of it. A five gallon can of Roundup is looking really good.

    It's definitely time to break out the Sta-Bil and add it to the gas can. However, it's not time yet to drain the lawn mower for the winter. It is, however, time for me to start shopping for a small two-stage snowblower. Since my surgery, I doubt I'll be able to do extensive snow-shoveling any more. Murphy's Law being Murphy's Law, I'll spend the money on an Ariens and then we won't get any snow worth mentioning this winter!
