Let me first apologize for this vid. It was shot with my cell phone at a second's-notice.. after several failed attempts with a different camera that eventually reached the capacity of its memory card.

Although I tried to prepare the best I could; I still had so much trouble.... that I was about to throw in the towel. Straight-off; my O-ring/starter-belt flew-off and slipped in-between an inaccessible gap in the deck-flooring.. GONE. Shocked OK.. I had another. I made a "backstop" to prevent that from happening again. Then the nut on the switch for my electric starter fell-off.. causing the button to go inside the housing.. UGH.. So I had to fix that. Then my replacement O-ring/belt flew-off somewhere "behind me" in the grass.. which took around 15 min. of searching to find. Then I had to refill my 25 minute capacity water-bottle.. Then the camera's memory-card issue.. then I noticed that my fuel tank was empty.. and I had to refill it.

By now... I'm doing some real serious soul-searching. Neutral  but I press-on............ Just when I was about ready to quit; the engine started up with a vengeance! I grabbed my phone as fast as I could and recorded about one minute of the spectacle..
