Grade six boy does 72 hours of lawn mowing to get RC truck.
Grade six student Ryan spends summer lawn mowing his dads school yard sized lawn, to get traxxs 2wd ford raptor. Ryan’s dad said that Ryan would have to use made money to buy the car which is why Ryan did the lawn. Ryan’s dad lives in a area of spring bank that has lawns the size of school yards. Because of that it took Ryan 6 hours to do the lawn, 50$ each time. Ryan said that when he got the ford raptor he felt like he was in a dream.
What motivated Ryan to get the Rc truck was when Ryan was in Canmore. Ryan and his friend decided to go the the dirt park. But instead they ended up watching a person who had a rc truck. When Ryan was 5 his family went camping, on that camping trip there was a adult driving his rc car. So that’s what motivated Ryan. Lawn mowing for 6 hours a weekend every second week was sort of boring, but Ryan’s dad had gotten a radio station set of earmuffs so that helped, the main thing was that at some spots you can hardly tell where you have mowed and where you haven’t so that got frustrating.
The RC truck goes roughly 40 km as a top speed but if geared differently it will go 50 km. Ryan got to use a ride on mower instead of the average push mower that is found in the city. Before Ryan got it he did a few days worth of researching to get the right one. Also because Ryan was using the lawn mower he had to help his dad do maintenance. When Ryan the reporter asked Ryan’s dad what he thought about lawn mowing and the rc car, he said that he was very proud that Ryan had done the lawn well and safely. he was happy Ryan found something he was passionate about.
After all the difficulties and lawn mowing Ryan did get his Rc car. Ryan’s thoughts after the event where happy ones because now he has a good quality Rc car, and now he has a summer job! Next summer Ryan plans to do his dads lawn also.
