I ordered an electric ATV for my oldest son.  It should be here tomorrow and available for some mountain cruising.  We’ll see if this was a good idea or a bad idea fairly quickly.  As I type this, my son is getting placed in timeout for the 2nd or 3rd time today, maybe the 4th.  Stay tuned for updates.

Onward!
