Then, I'll swap for a set of rails that the spreader is on and be ready for plowing.

Whats going through my mind is the one with the high milage be put to use as a rolling billboard spring through fall. Make a nice 8x12 double sided sign, anchor it down, and park the truck in busy shopping center parking lots on weekends.

I've thought about it but seems like people are getting towed. This area doesn't even have roadside signs.......not a single billboard. I could send someone out driving but on a regular basis could get expensive. Then again, I could land a $100k job.....who knows.

We're making a lot of transitions next year and want to keep my head wrapped around that. Once we're going I'll have more time to devote to running the business and generating leads but you're thinking in the right direction.

We've gone from 1-3" to 12-20" to 1-3" to 2-6" to 4-10" to now a 1" forecast......standby, standby, standby.........

The unfortunate part was cutting Christmas short and calling everybody in from out of town to sit here but it's the chance that's taken with snow. We almost went to VA Beach with three of the trucks but it was called off, so still we wait.
