Day Off

So I got the weekend off for the most part. This hasn't happened all year, so it was kind of a new thing for me

So I washed everything up!

Heres some pictures!

Here is one of the truck. I try to clean the truck twice a week (I'm obsessive, I know!) but I normally just wash and clean out the inside of it on Sunday afternoon.

BTW, the truck just rolled 110,500 miles and its still doing great! A plow will be coming next fall.

Hah. Hopefully a trailer coming late fall/early winter. That way I have all winter to get it geared up for next season

I am going to get an enclosed. Either an 18, or 20ft.

Oh yes! I love that truck so much, it would be hard for me to sell it.

The plan is in three years add another truck, and retire the current truck to a backup/extra plow truck (I will still be a solo operation, no additional crew).

How do you manage to fit all the work in once fall hits and school starts up again? lol With clean-ups it's one of the busiest times of the year.... and we have to be in school so much..... Do you just transfer most of it over to saturdays and sundays?

It gets rough once school starts.

I work after school until dark, and normally all day Saturday, sometimes Sunday.

Yeah, it gets tough with school, that's for sure. So you decided to stay solo-good choice, no employees doing crappy work and all the other hassle associated with it.
