    Yeah, pretty much, I've got it written out on the contract that any work done after 12hours will require a new bid and payment, but J was right, this would be a $2,000 if I was charging appropriately for the guy on the ground. But I am hungry for work(I am not the only one doing this, my boss just did the same thing on a clean up on a repo'd house on 5 acres) and I am not really taking a hit because my overhead is so low, but once I get some sort of machinery that'll stop..

    That's provided they let you get your license, Junior.

    They might not like those wood blocks your daddy had to glue to the pedals. :laugh:
