    A friend of mine is the head baseball coach in southeastern Indiana. Before their first game, he wants me to come in and mow the field. He asked me because I do have a stripping kit on my mower. Now, I know how to price things, but I normally don't have to drive this far to do a job. How much should I figure in my drive time??? I believe he wants me to cut the field twice so that there is a nice defined stripe. So, I'm anticipating approximately 1.5 hours of mow time. My drive time will be approximately 45 min. to the job and 45 min. back home.

    In our area the going rate is $45-$60/hour, at least.

    My early thoughts are to charge $125 to do this baseball field.

    No pun intended, but am I in the "ball park" on this one?

    Thanks in advance for you help.
