Where did they all go?

A month ago our aera was flooded with brand new trucks towing brand new mowers.

The weather was cool and when it got warm it stopped raining so the grass isn't growing all that fast this year.

Don't know if that's what whipped them out, but Ive seen only a few trucks that I recognize in the past 2 weeks.

A bunch of them had done up there trucks with graphics, but I haven't seen any of them for 3 weeks.

This. Only people I see are at the gas stations.

I nestle into a neighborhood around 0900 and don't leave a 20 block area till 1400.

There is a reason ups spent billions on route planning.

Around my necks things have slowed down, but that doesn't put me out, it does however give me time to start working on machines that are down, which rarely requires me driving around with the trailer.

They all made it big, and were so successful they only do the exclusive gated neighborhoods you don't get invited into
