    Re: DIYer identifier

    I like to do things myself. Maybe I'm cheap or whatever, but I do have my limits. If it's a gas line...I go to the guy with the license and the know-how. I won't buy the parts, as I figure that'd probably just cost more in the long run. But if it's a simple water leak, Dad taught me how to fix that. I can use the torch and sweat the pipes together.

    I got lucky and have a Dad that can do just about anything. He can build a deck, put up walls, install heating and a/c, and can even change the oil in his truck. He taught me to do all that, and build things too.

    I'm in my 40's and have never driven a tractor though!! I've even flown a plane....but never had the chance to drive a tractor. I'm a product of the suburbs. You don't see a lot of tractors when you're in housing subdivisions. Maybe someday, I'll get the chance to tool around in something better than my F250.
    I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
