A Cub and a Cat....

Postby Bigschuss » Tue Jun 05, 2012 6:15 am

Hey guys,

Last month, after much anguishing consideration, I listed my '58 Cub for sale with all implements. Life on my little hobby farm has gotten to the point where I needed an ATV to do many chores that the Cub just can not do...for example, haul sap in the muddy late winter months on rough woods trails. So, I didn't really want to sell it, but with 2 kids, and one income (mom stays home with the kids), I just didn't have the cash to buy an ATV without selling something.

While my Cub was listed, I dreaded each incoming e-mail, PM, and phone call hoping that nobody would offer my asking price. In the end, I had a few offers but declined them. Glad I did. I didn't really want to sell my Cub. I ended up selling off 4 rifles and 3 pistols to fund my ATV purchase. I'll miss those, but not asw much as I would have missed my Cub.

So, a pic of my new 2008 Arctic Cat 700 and my Cub tucked safely back in the tractor shed where she'll stay.

Good choice! Glad you kept the Cub.

Poor tortured cub is hiding in the barn praying not to be sold.
Glad you still have your cub!

I really like your Sugar House. It is even better with the Cub inside. :) :)

I understand the choice and it's difficulty. A few years ago I was worried I might be developing Alzheimers, and decided to start cutting back on some of the stuff I owned. I had several guns I had purchased over the years, but rarely used anymore. I hated to part with them, but my cousin's wife was having an estate sale after the death of my cousin, and I took them to that auction. I don't miss them near as much as I thought I would,and made good money on them. I only kept the ones I use on a regular basis, and it turned out my worries about Alzheimers were unfounded.

Blair, you made the right choice. I've already decided that if I need to fund something, some of my guns will be the first to go to raise the cash.
