School is important man, having a degree to fall on is nice. Put your time in and you'll be able to expand quickly after that! The steady rain was great today, that will help!

Yeah that's the only reason I am still going. My untimate goal is to sit back and run a supply yard and just have a crew for landscaping and mowing and dabble a bit in rental properties. So the degree in business management should at least provide some guidance

Not a bad plan, sort of what I'd like to do as well. I've set some goals and hopefully you have some too!

Yes I will see how fast things come together but first I need to finish school. I already have a mulch supplier that I think I can use which is good but it will be a few years before anything actually happens.

lol it wasn't too bad! It took me and a helper 3 hours. We have been sooo slow recently I gladly took it. Plus I had the snapper up on the steepest part of the hill so it was not too bad. It was so steep it would stall out and I would have to slide it back down to a semi flat point.
