Kansas lawn thread!

I know we have a KC thread and i do live in Overland Park. But what about the other guys who live out in Central, Western and Souhtern KS. We cant leave them out. So lets make this the official kansas thread. If this fails then oh well...if it suceeds then great.

Topeka here. Have a Fence, Lawn & Landscape business. Am also a full time as well as part time and volunteer Firefighter (3 different departments involved). Needless to say I do pass my wife in the hallway at home occasionally! I have been to Overland Park Fire and participated in some of their training. Outstanding, top notch department you have there!

Actually not at TFD. My full time job is at the Airport (Forbes Field) on the Police and Fire Dept. I also work part time for a Fire Dept. in the SW part of the county. I also volunteer for a rural dept. in western Shawnee County that also contracts over into Wabaunsee County. Always a call somewhere it seems! Do you volunteer at OPFD or one of the other cities in JOCO ?

I just submitted apps to De Soto and JOCO Fire Dist. #1. I expect to get on with De Soto within the next two weeks.

Hi, I'm another Topeka LCO here. I spent about 18 years in the corporate world, got fed up and started a full time lawn care biz a few years ago. I am in my 5th year now. I know we have another part time LCO (H&H) because he contacted me the other day regarding my Toro walk behinds that I am getting ready to sell.

I've been to Topeka a lot for racing and other purposes. I pass through it a lot too on the way to K-State football games. How is the city? How is the Crime?

I grew up in OP/Olathe. I was in Lawn care & Landscaping there for around 30 years before taking my "act" on the road. Been gone now for around 6 years.
Go Jayhawks!!!
