Hello everyone,
Just wanted to introduce myself and say I look forward to learning and sharing information with you. OK, well I started cutting grass in 1994 in order to supplement my income while in the military. In 1996 my tour was over and found that I really liked making people happy and getting paid to do it. So in 1997 I decided I would give it a go full time. Its been great. Some of the equipment names I have had the opportunity to use and sell are Dixie Chopper, Bad Boy, Echo, Maruyama, Shindaiwa, and Stihl. I have spent a larger amount of time with Bad Boy, Dixie Chopper and echo. I Have cut grass commercially, had my own sales and service shop and am currently a sales rep.

God Bless
Ricky

I'm just across the Sabine river, in SE TX.

Who are you a rep for?

I seen in your profile that you like to fish and hunt. I'm not much of a hunter, but I love to fish. I guess I'm going to start hunting next year, my son loves to hunt. He wants us to get on a lease with some friends

What kind of fishing do you do in La.?

We fish mostly salt and brackish water. Catching Reds is a blast. I went yesterday for a few hours, water on the flats was very low due to the cold front. I did manage 2 slot Reds, and one rat Red.

The rat Red was 18 1/2", would have been a keeper in La, but not in Tx.

I'm thinking about getting a La. license, $90 for non-resident :cry:
