Thanks BTB! I am just having fun and very thankful for the wealth of knowledge all of you are willing to share with a newbie like me!

No doubt, right?! I'm told this one is "'bout three hunerd" (according to the lovely farmer who gave it to me
). He even brought it to my house! I was so excited when I got home yesterday! I saw it on the front yard, ran in the house, changed clothes, ran back out, and picked the tire up. I'm very happy to say my almost 13 year old daughter watched me pick it up. She said "OH MY GOD, MOM". She was shocked. Ha!
Full disclosure -- I put it up -- then rolled it 1.5 acres to the back, back yard. Then for fun I flipped it a couple more times. 10 min later, I was like, hmm... the back of my right knee kinda hurts... thats weird..... lol. Still lifted last night, knee/calf/thing is still sore today, but I stretch it out and it's good. Just tightens up when I sit or dont move too long. I'm sure it will be all good by Monday!
