What do you do during the winter?

Hey all, I have been reading this forum for quite awhile and just decided to join.

I have just been sitting here wondering what others are doing to stay busy during the winter months. The growing season just ended and I am already ready for spring! I do have a few snow removal accounts but lets face it, there is still alot of downtime and I am just flat out bored.

So what does everyone else do to keep themselves busy during winter??

Plow snow, repair trailers and equipment, enjoy some down time and talk to prospective clients. I always keep in touch with all my clients. It gives them the feeling that they are the only one who matters to me. I have a good friend in sales he once told me all his job requires is making his clients feel as tho they are the number one.

Plow snow, upgrade or repair my equipment, etc. I have plenty of buddies in construction so when I'm in need of some work I can usually always find some.

Last year I had my right knee replaced. This winter I am having my gallbladder removed. I'll turn 73 in January.
