Would you be interested in selling the 1997 Chevy 1-ton dump or 16' enclosed seperate? I'd be interested in info...

Is that $32k your average income or the average income of the residents in your city? You care to expose your income if that isn't yours?

$32 K is the average income in the city. My point was, that it doesn't cost much to live fine here.

I have already put six digits in the bank this year between this business and my application business.

At this point, I am not willing to sell off equipment (couldn't sell untill end of season anyway).

If someone wanted to buy my customers w/out the equipment then I would start selling it.
