    Thats why you core-plug b/f topdress - perfect scenario.
    I would love to topdress for $$ but I just don't see the market here yet. Trying to explain that to people would be like trying to explain Newton's Laws to a 3rd grader.

    Well grass is green. But not growing. This cold weather blows. I was really hoping for some warm days before the season started to repaint my trailer.

    Hello, Gents (and I did see a woman LCO out there working it like a pro too)! Second year of business in the Davenport, IA/QC area. No worries- I present no threats - got about 9 solid accounts mixed commercial/residential. Still a full time office rat but was tired of seeing a final product of a days work in the form of a stack of paper. You might have see me around - instead of a truck I rock a Mazda 6 with a 8 foot trailer - ha! Sure saves on gas but gotta have tough skin with all the heckling. I gotta a piggy bank called "truck". Great people in this biz - even my jerk of an ex-roomate. Hope to see some familiar faces here and out on the routes!
