Here are some questions I have:

When you were younger say around 18-20 did you do strictly lawn maintenance?
Are you only servicing full maintenance accounts, or will you take on the mow and go?
Are you strictly commercial as far as maintenance is concerned?
What have you found to be the best advertising methods?
About how many accounts did you service when you were 18-20?
How soon did you get your first crew running?

No pics of the 08 dump yet...I'll get on that this week once we get back to work...I love that truck! That's what I've been plowing in the last storm or two.
Next time i see you guys down there when i'm driving by to do some plowing accounts i'll get a few pics. A maze describes it best.

I wanted him this past spring but got intouch with him a week after he got signed up with Boumil. Made him a nice offer but he didn't budge. he wasn't really interested in workn for a young guy. He lasted a few months with Boumil but got out basically because they're very particular and he couldn't handle it hahaha, more or less. He did work on a couple landscape renovations with me.

so we might have to barter in the spring

He's loyal to you and wears your hoodies alot.
