    Hey RCRacer, I just now noticed you're 80 miles South of me. I'm up here in Ponca City, about 45 North of Stillwater. Are you Edmond, OKC, Norman, Moore, ????

    I know about where that's at. I bought my truck at Fowler Dodge there on 240 and I lived in Valley Brook (SE 59th) back in 2001, so... Business has been great for me. I've got a city contract up here that covers the library, museum, senior citizen center, nutrition center, associated charities center, a 4 acre lot, and a 29 acre 2 mile roadway (median and both sides). Other than that, i've got Sonic, Napa Auto Parts, a Chevy dealership, 2 truck stops out on I-35, a bunch of stuff out in the industrial park like a concrete plant, water bottling company, foundry, etc... This year im expanding into the residentials because one of my competitors is moving to Bartelsville and giving up 62 lawns or so. He was a residential guy. Me being the primary lawn business here, ive been getting alot of calls from his former clientel. So, I went out and bought a little Scag Tiger Cub 48" and decked out a small trailer I had sitting around and am going to start maintenancing residentials along with my other stuff.
