Default First start of the year.

Finally a nice day here in Connecticut along Long Island Sound.

After a six month rest our 29 started right up. Took her for a nice ride. Canít wait for our grandson to visit.

Anyone else getting theirs out after a long winters sleep? Enjoy.

I've had mine out for about ten days now here in North Dakota. The weather shifted significantly about the 20th of April. It's a little later than recent years, but we'll take it. Last night was a little chilly at the first monthly cruise, but the wind was minimal.

I started mine too for the first time, 2 turns and was running :-) It ran for a few minutes, then it stopped, what the heck it was running good, oh ran the gas tank dry :-)

Got mine out on April 14th on the one nice day we had. And then it snowed.... haven't been out since. Gotta do a shake down run today before the show in Rhinebeck, NY.

MY first start of the DAY: Sat up with a low battery, hand cranked myself & got this FAR!
