Mowing Continued

Finally replaced my GPS over the weekend. For the inaugural use I stuck it in my pocket while I mowed the lawn yesterday.

7.21 miles. Most of the distance was riding but a good 50% of the time was on foot.

The raw data can be found here.

 So we bought a house. That's already old news. Here it is:

Clearly a satellite/aerial view, Google Earth in fact. Our place is the one closer to the center, off to the left is the neighbor's place (also for sale, we looked at it, total train wreck layout). Our lot has a good amount of grass, and it needs regular mowing, and to that end I have purchased a lawn tractor, a push mower, and a string trimmer. In case you're wondering, the push mower is necessary due to the fact that there is a fair amount of terrain that the  lawn tractor can't handle. Here's the same image as above, post a little awesome MS Paint work by yours truly showing the property lines in red and grass in green:

3½ hours. And I'm not done yet. Still need to bust out the string trimmer tomorrow for another ½ hour at least. I'm hoping that with regular maintenance I can cut that down to 2½ total, but fuck me, that's a lot of mowing. Sure glad I got the "fast" tractor.
