I bought a scratch and win ticket once, I won nothing.
It was a scratch and lose.
Just the anticipation of winning made me sweat.
I found the whole process rather overwhelming.
I sure miss that doller I spent.

This isn't really a chat thread so if you want to get back to what you would do if you won the lottery I would appreciate it.

A house surrounded by Crown or agricultural land with the kitchen and master bedroom facing east and living room windows facing south/south-east; the livingroom would have a real, wood-burning fireplace and be open to the kitchen. There would be a large, heated shop wired for 220, and the back yard would be south-facing & ideal for a garden and greenhouse.

My first purchase would be ...oh selfish me.... a new GMC Canyon Crew.
2nd, A fairly level tract of land in Oyama, around 10 acres.
If it was a real big win.
I'd like to see The Vernon Motorplex diversify and expand with a true motorcycle Flat-track.
Moto-cross park. and road course, With a full, comprehensive vehicle usage training facility.
Start an Association or, fund an exhisting one, to lobby Gov't so as to get away from the present day vehicle
(car, bus, m/cycle, big-rig) licencing mills that we presently have that only teach how to pass the exam and little else.
and, to implement a special licence requirement and training to pull any trailer, from utility, to travel, to monster 5th wheels.

Basically, a road safety initiative thats true focus is on safety through knowledge of "ALL" vehicles
that use the roadways.
You want your car licence, you still have to take a course on Motorcycles and Big-rigs so as
you have an understanding of their capabilities and characteristics.

Wow, so much to do...better get started...649 t'night,Max on Fri., sounds like I'll need 'em both :127: .

Nice DB, I will admit I didn't get it why bikes look like they can move so fast until I began riding, it isn't fast as it is a different kind of maneuverability that they can do. Trucks, ya they can't just stop on a dime but people don't know that so even if they had to ride with a driver a few days to see from the inside that there is a difference and take a desk course that would probably greatly change how they would bolt out in front of a semi rolling down a highway. Some great ideas there Dude...
