Of course your realize, this means war

OK. This is war. All-out war. Man vs. the driveway. But this time, man will be armed. After three months of using shovels, picks, hoes, wagons and rakes to fight a losing battle with an ever-eroding surface on the 35-degree, 450-foot long slope that, in one rainstorm, went from a smooth driveway to Floyd County's most-challenging offroad trail, I've decided to bring in the big guns. A power grader.

After three months of using shovels, picks, hoes, wagons and rakes to fight a losing battle with an ever-eroding surface on the 35-degree, 450-foot long slope that, in one rainstorm, went from a smooth driveway to Floyd County’s most-challenging offroad trail, I’ve decided to bring in the big guns.

A power grader.

On Monday, I ordered a DR Power Grader, a quasi-heavy equipment tool that its makers promise will restore my driveway to its former glory.

David and Gretchen St. Lawrence speak highly of implements from DR. They bought one of their log-splitters not long after moving to Floyd County and David says the company delivers well-made products and backs those products with excellant customer service. I was further seduced by a well-made video and other excellent material from the company explaining just how the Power Grader works. I also talked to a friend in Carroll County who has one and swears by it.

According to the order confirmation received Monday night, the Power Grader will be shipped via truck this week and should be ready for pickup at the trucking company depot in Roanoke in about 10 days.

Enjoy your few remaining days of rebellion driveway. Your days of insubordination are about to come to an end.

  1. Being a Vermonter I’m proud to hear DR Power Equipment (based in Vergennes, VT) is still thriving.

    The DR powered lifting arm is a big part of the cost but I’m sure it makes it convenient! It makes me wonder if DR and 3-in-1 industries are partnering in some way. I just bought an 8′ wide 3-in-1 Handozer Arena Groomer that looks very, very similar in design to your new DR ( http://www.pecorfamily.com/Blog_202006_2D08_2D18_20Handozer.jpg ). They have widths ranging from 42″ to 8′. I paid $1,299 for mine plus $298 to have it delivered from CA. I’m going to have to call 3-in-1 and ask them if my groomer can be used on dirt roads 🙂

Keeping time around the world

In a period of my adult, professional, life, I spent many days (and nights) on planes flying around the world. For many of those years,
