Where did you go ...I'll be there next time! The last time I changed the oil it was $110.00 . I asked the guy can 16 quarts cost that much!

Jp,
I hate sitting on my hands. are you keeping busy with other work ?
Right now everything is caught up so, yes I have been idle for a few days. Nice break, we got some rain last night and we are getting more today. I hope it rains all day and all night. Depending on the how much rain we get, I might go back to a 10 day schedule it will depend though.

I e-mailed the Ohio Highway Patrol and they confirmed this for me.

I am still looking for the exact wording of the law, but most likely going to call PUCO directly (once my truck is DOT inspected)

Have you guys heard about this ???

We are finally getting some rain. We have had about 1.5 inches of rain the past three days. It is pouring here right now, so that figure is going up as I type this.

Have not heard about that. But a friend got pulled over on Saturday as a courtesy stop by the puco motor enforcement. Said beginning Jan 1 they are going to start enforcing the rules on landscapers about having mowers tie downed, gas cans and a breakaway on your trailer brakes.

I am waiting on him to send me the website so I can post here for everyone. Needless to say I stayed off the freeways today, I did not want them doing a courtesy stop on me. lol
