Lets bump this one back up.

As of today (9/17/07) I am done purchasing any "equipment" until next fall. I got a laptop today (didn't want to buy one, but had to get one) and that marks the end of purchasing.

So far this year i have purchased:

-Toro 52" WB (I sold it, but a guy traded me a 36" WB and $1k in cash for it)
-STIHL FS 110 Trimmer
-Acer Laptop

From today on out, all checks are getting cashed and staying in the bank. Only expenses are fuel, maintenance, and a little spending. Goal is to end the year with $6k in the bank account and save another $10-12k next year and next October i plan on buying a truck. Hoping to find a 95-2001 Chevy 2500HD reg. cab long bed for under $10k. That will leave plenty of $$ in the bank account for 2009, and in February of 09, i finally get my drivers license!!! In 2009, i plan on getting a 8x18-8x20 enclosed trailer, dump insert/8' Western Plow for truck.

Once i get my license, i will be able to take on a lot more work. I right now service about 20-25 properties per week, and once i get the license, i will hire an employee and we should be able to knock out 30-35 in 4 days after school, leaving two days for landscaping, hedge trimming, landscaping, etc.


Chevy Trucks
Western Plow
Sno Ex Spreader
Lesco Fertilizer Equipment

dishwashing machine
re- or over insulate teh attic.

uhhh, that's it, i think

Everything else is a ways down the road, more than a year, but here they are:
pay off the Z.
a nice but used compact tractor with a loader, a backhoe would be nice.
And, a 1980's or so Ferrari Mondial or 308gts / gtb... (4-5 years from now on this, at least).
That or maybe a Tiffany or an Excalibur, maybe a Panther Kallista and a big if but perhaps a morgan would do as well.
Nono, just one, those are simply the options.
I've looked at Alfa Romeos and Maseratis, but they just don't turn me on.
Lamborghinis are too far out of range, and I don't want a kit lambo.
Still not sure about the bmw's, thou if I keep one it would likely be the '88 325 convertible.
