Jason,
I knew they went out, but did not hear that they sold out. I picked up a couple of their church jobs and the customers said that they just got a letter saying we (Gene's) are closing and to basically find someone else. Seems kind of strange, but I will take the work.

Head's up guys, a few post back someone was talk'n about OSHA and joked about "what happened to the DOT stuff", well I've been seeing the "CVE Tahoe" (commercial vehicle enforcement) work'n the I-94 corridor between M-59 and 23 mile hot and heavy for the last two weeks now. Had a one pulled over at lunch time. so look out there still out there look'n for us!!!!

They were all over 275 on Tuesday. Saw close to half-a-dozen trucks pulled over between Plymouth and Monroe, both sides, throughout the day.

I see 10 to 12 no names pulling trailers with mowing equipment every day. I don't think the cities or DOT really care. I didn't realize it was this bad. It makes a guy question trying to run a legal biz.
