Among other things I’ve had going on, learning to drive a tractor has taken its place. The extent of my tractor driving is, so far, using it to mow the area around a cabin and pond on property my wife’s family owns about 40 miles from home. I’ve learned a few things:
- slopes aren’t fun on a tractor
- slow and steady works best
- you can bog down a finish mowing deck in high grass
- mowing on a tractor is hot work
But, it is a nice change of pace from worrying about databases and servers.
