While on the subject of consultations AND something I hate doing- I recently lost one property but was asked if I would come out and give some advice on the mowing and use of his new riding mower.
He offered to pay and I'm curious about what some of you would consider this and/or charge.
I apologize for going off topic, I asked this in my Introduce Yourself To The Community' thread- lots of readers but no suggestions.
Thanks

Oh...and dog squat. It tasted terrible, guess I'm a mouth breather...

Yeah, I walk the properties but, invariably, there's something- even if just a napkin that shows up right as I'm going over it...never a hammer thankfully.
About the guy, I'm with you on not charging. I know he'll insist though. He's a good guy, a bit haphazard and a talker, but he's not a problem at all so I want to help. Plus, I think he'll continue to communicate about his property, and he asked me to service his mower and winterize at the end of the season. So I'm just wondering if anyone else has a similar experience. I'm also considering time and fuel.

For me, it's closing out the daily paperwork, especially during mowing season.

Every spring when the oaks start to pollinate my eyes feel like they are on fire for weeks. All the symptoms of a cold without being sick.

Random objects through the mowers is definitely up there, for me though its gotta be poison ivy seems like every year there's more and more of it.

Napkins are really bad but i hit a stuffed animal thing one time it was bad the stuffing was EVERY WHERE i am not joking it took 20 minutes to clean it up.
