I've had a cold beer before while mowing. Does this make me bad? :confused:

No, one beer won't hurt. Two-ten might.:D

Was it the 1st one or the 10th :) Well lets see I'm sure somewhere in America there will be a group that will try to outlaw having a beer while sitting in you own living room, just give it time. Welcome to the land of lost{lossing} freedoms !!!!!!!!!!

I have no beverages at all. The cup holder is by my right elbow and I've knocked my sports bottle onto the ground too many times.

Never during, never after. I've done too many dumb things stone sober to want to tilt my chances, even a little. :eek:

I have indulged in a Miller lite or Rolling Rock once or twice while mowing or brush hogging. Some times 2, over the coarse of 4 or 5 hrs. Two beers over 4 or 5 hrs is my absolute limit while operating on my property, one beer more often, and ice water most often. One thing worth mentioning is that if you are drinking and mowing whithin the right of way of a public road, {mine is 30 ft from the road centerline} you can be cited for an open container violation. I never have been, but my mother was an insurance agent for 19 years, and had it happen to lots of her clients.

Bottom line is know your limits, I am 6ft and 220 lbs, and almost always have a full belly[see 220 lbs]. I can handle 2 beers much better than my 120 lb wife, who would be in no shape to operate after 2 beers.

never an adult beverage. I like a cup brimming with ice then watered down. When water runs out, the sun melts the ice and its a perfect temp of water to drink. :D
