    JP. did you invent that thing? It is cool....

    Additional features possible.....
    a hand crank and gear system for more traction and less pushing (unit moves slower but with more torque)
    a pedaling attachment with gearing

    No, my cousin did. I'm just trying to help him out by spreading the word.
    The skinny tire wouldn't provide enough traction as a drive wheel I don't think, not to mention the extra engineering and materials would drive the cost up to that of a small snow blower. Frankly I think he needs to get the cost down, but it does work well. Takes a little practice at first. The technique is to push a little and fill the blade, then push down quickly on the handle which throws the snow. Much easier on the back than regular shoveling.

    How the heck is Eric in Level 1? I can't think of anyone who splits more wood by hand!!! Anyway, I got past Eric, Elk, and BeGreen, but can't seem to beat Goose!!

    17,100 but my key board started to walk on away on the desk. I guess a little to intense for it.

    Goose is on the "juice" and is should be banned from the game or an asterick should be noted after every time he competes.
