    Hahha I never saw the point in raking them, usually there blown back all over the lawn in a matter of hours anyway. My parents used to make me rake our acre+ wooded lot, it's a never ending process

    The subby faired pretty good with the acorns....the Z got a few dings...but I'm at the point where the car is not going to ever be a classic again...so screw it. The CRX didn't get hit at all...the civic will be junked soon, and then theres walters civic.,...it got a few new little dings now....

    next year the thought of extending an overhang from the garage has crossed my mind...I just got to figuare out if I'll pave the driveway or asphalt it...

    A good thing to do if a car is going to be sitting and is "acornable"... Buy the Egg Crate Mattress liners, throw it on the car, throw a tarp over that to keep it dry, then throw a car cover on the car. [​IMG]

    And bags? Who the hell bags leaves? Hop on the mower, blow them all into a pile, rake them onto a tarp, drag the tarp into the woods... [​IMG]

    i caught a neighbor trying to do that. I drove by screaming "ASSHOLE!" as i swerved a little towards his property, blowing alot of his leaves back into his yard... Few hours later... leaves were all gone.

    I have a drainage ditch that runs right next to my house. Its about 4 feet deep and made of rock and concrete. I just rake all of my leaves into it. Next time it rains, water washes them out to a field about 5 blocks away.

    No bagging, no hassle, just dump em off. I do the same thing with grass clippings. :mrgreen:
