This year Im doing a much bigger expo and Im going to have a small tv playing powerpoint of our work, a 4x8 banner (business card layout, only much larger) in my background, material samples, my tablet to show examples of specific work, my framed newspaper article (3), chamber of commerce award, etc. Everything that makes you look better than the other guy helps. Yes, for the small expo I got my money back and more. Made some great connections with other businesses, which really is what I think a lot of it is about.

Hah. I know. It killed me to trade that truck after all i put in it. But they did give me a great offer on it, i kept the vplow/bracket, as well as all my strobes, etc. I got a great deal on the dump too, so it was a win-win.

So if your a volunteer firefighter you can put all those strobes on? That sounds pretty good to me.

Yep. Ive got my 20" bar in the dash, two strobes in grill and two in my back glass. Really lights up the road at night! I'd really like to get the work light strobe kits but i priced them at like $500
